Or the voters might allow the school district to take care of that on Tuesday. And, no, I don't believe anyone with the School District shoved smoke bombs in the vents...although I'm guessing some of the grassy knollers thought that when they read the story. BG

Right, except that when these offers AREN'T made - say, when Quincy Compressor announced they were moving - it was a hue and cry of "Why didn't the city do more to keep them here?!!??" 1000 people means more spending on rent or home purchases. It means more people buying groceries, deodorant, toilet paper. It means more people going to restaurants and movies and malls and gas stations and…

According to line 23 of the IL 941 I paid use tax that would amount to more than $1,600 of out of state purchases. I was no where close to this - $500 at most. So, besides over paying my taxes you are trying to lay a guilt trip on me. Sorry not buying it - I've rendered to Ceasar so much my butt hurts.. Enough self-righteous bunk for one post - let's move on.

Anyone who can get his party's nomination and run such a close race, as Rauner has done, is a POLITICIAN. He is not a CAREER politician but he is a politician. He is not the white knight riding in on horseback to save us all.

Rep. Tracy endorses Frese for House

Lt. Gov. candidate says she asked Frese to run

State Rep. Jil Tracy (R-Quincy) said today she asked Randy Frese to run for the seat she is vacating to run for Lt. Governor.

Tracy officially endoresed Frese this morning during a Quincy news conference. She appeared with Frese when he first announced for the office in November and said at that time. "I would not have decided to run for Lt. Governor on the Dillard-Tracy ticket f I wasn't confident that he was going to seek the office."

Today, she went into more detail.

"I asked Randy to run and he said he had to discuss it with his family," Tracy said. "When he said he would, I knew the district would be well represented."

Tracy's official endorsement comes as the Adams County GOP prepares to host its annual Lincoln/Reagan Luncheon on Sunday. 

Frese said he was humbled by Tracy's endorsement and hoped to continue "the tradition of constituent service Jil and those who have also represented West-Central Illinois in the Illinois House have provided."

Frese and Tracy were also making an appearance in Monmouth later Thursday morning. 

Frese is running in the March 18 primary against Marshall Schrader of Monmouth, who held a gathering in a southside Quincy home on Wednesday night. 

There is no Democrat running for the seat, although the party can fill the vacancy after the primary.
