Funny, I thought GuyFawkes10 was suggesting that the people would indeed fly to STL, and then shuttles would drive them back to Quincy. Sounds like enplanements to me.

With all due respect, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that there has got to be a rule against what you are suggesting. In order to receive the federal aviation grant, there have to be 10,000 enplanements. (Enplanements are not the number of tickets that are sold, it's the number of ticketed passengers who actually travel on the flights.) If what you're suggesting was allowed, the…

Is there a list somewhere on the city's website of how many council meetings attended and or missed by aldermen? If not there should be. That is just as important if not more than Mayor Moore's City report card ie., "how are we doing".

This is off topic, but your claims like this really need a link, instead of you spewing Democrat talking points on every issue. "a guy paid by oil companies to tell you that extreme levels of his company's byproduct are okeydokey can be more convincing than the near-entirety of Earth's scientists" Who is that oil company guy? And who is "the near entirety" guy? I read the actual…

Rauner wins GOP nomination for Illinois governor

Rauner wins GOP nomination for Illinois governor

8 months ago from Chicago Tribune

From from Chicago Tribune:

Wealthy first-time candidate Bruce Rauner scored a narrow win over state Sen. Kirk Dillard for the Republican governor nomination in Tuesday’s primary with Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn now on tap for the fall.

Rauner, a Winnetka venture capitalist, collected 41 percent to 36.5 percent for Dillard with 78 percent of the unofficial vote counted. State Sen. Bill Brady had 15 percent and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford had 7.5 percent.

"Let's bring back Illinois," Rauner told cheering supporters at a downtown hotel.

On the Democratic side, Quinn declared victory after scoring 72 percent with 78 percent of the preincincts counted. Challenger Tio Hardiman, the former leader of the anti-violence group CeaseFire had 28 percent. A vote for the low-profile Hardiman amounted to a protest vote amid concerns from some Democrats about Quinn’s leadership.

The primaries were notable for low turnout despite the high-stakes nature of the GOP contest for governor. Quinn was the only statewide Democratic candidate to have a challenge.

Even before the Republican race was decided, Quinn tried to jumpstart the general election. Believing Rauner to be his opponent, Quinn aired TV commercials during newscasts attacking the Republican over the issue of raising the minimum wage.

Quinn has backed raising the state’s $8.25-an-hour minimum wage to at least $10 an hour. The issue has been a troublesome one for Rauner, who initially advocated “moving back” the state’s minimum wage to the current federal rate of $7.25 an hour.
