Please also keep in mind that 40% of sales tax revenue in Adams county comes from citizens who live OUTSIDE of Adams county who come here from Missouri and surrounding counties to shop and spend their money. So the cost of this project to the residents and taxpayers of Adams County is only about $15M. Granted, those traveling here might not be able to spend as much if the tax is more, but I doubt someone…

Between chestnut and locust and 2nd to 12th, this area was on the upswing with three nursing homes and working class homeowners. Now with slum lords moving into the area like vultures buying up these properties choking the last cent from them, forcing land owners out of there homes due to the garbage and decay of the rental houses near to them, renters have no respect for the land owners that live…

Any company in bed with politicians of any stripe is bad for American's but government control of the internet is bad news. Just as shown here government control of the flow of information in collusion with Goggle is biased and one sided. Of course you don't have to use Google but with Google writing the rules it gives them and government unfair advantage and control. What's the solution,…

Why is this comment even allowed? QJ should use some editorial judgement before they allow crap like this that is known to be completely false and can be verified as false with one phone call to the police. This is disgusting.

CC1 had valid points but I feel that the jail is needed and maybe the price tag can be reduced. A quarter of cent isn't much until you add it up but the need for a new jail outweighs the cost. Yes many taxes once instituted never seem to go away but we will have chance to get rid of politicians who renege on their promise to stop the tax once the jail is paid for. It's different than state…

Randy Frese has been chosen as the Republican nominee for the 94th Illinois State Representative.

 Frese took 70% of the vote against Marshall Schrader of Monmouth. 

Frese says he is humbled by all of those who helped in the campaign. 

“Thank you to those who came to the fundraisers, who wrote checks, who allowed us to put signs in their yards, who walked and knocked on doors with us,” said Frese. “When it comes down to a night when you can celebrate a victory, it makes it all worthwhile.” 

Currently, there is no Democrat on the general election ballot. 

However, Frese says he will count on the fact that the Democrats will appoint someone to run. 

“We will continue on strongly with the campaign,” said Frese. We will generate some enthusiasm about getting some good conservative ideas and some common sense to Springfield.” 

The Representative seat was left vacant by Rep. Jil Tracy. Tracy ran alongside Kirk Dillard as Illinois Lt. Governor hopeful.

In the three way race for Adams County Clerk, Chuck Venvertloh won over County Board member Becky Weed and Quincy School Board member Scott Stone. 

Venvertloh won by 328 votes over Weed. 

 

Venvertloth took 41% of the vote, beating Becky Weed by 320 votes. Scott Stone took 22% of the vote.

 

Venvertloth said he will use his win's momentum moving forward. 

 

“We’ve got another one coming up here. Becky Weed and Scott Stone both ran a really hard race,” said Venvertloth. “I’m looking forward to them joining the team and making a really cohesive unit and looking ahead to a victory for the Republicans in the fall.” 

 

Venvertloth will go up against Democrat Jonathan Shoenakase on the November ballot.
