Care to back up your statement with any facts? Also be sure to recognize that businesses don't really pay taxes....consumers do.

Saying and doing are different. My bet is that you would be for term limits but as demonstrated, what the people want will not happen, same with illegal immigration.

Good it looks like we agree on even more, our entitlement society is bad, but just remember welfare and food stamps are a drop in the bucket compared to Corporate, and Ag welfare, only one of the three candidates will address this in a meaning full way.

I really didn't need your Life's Story or reasons why you feel the way you do----I respect your right to feel however you want on this or any other issue, whether I agree with it or not. Curiously, I actually agree with much of what you posted, just not about the wisdom of a Third-Party vote and a few other points. You may say my statements about the futility and undesired effects…

Mayor holds second town hall in first year

4 months, 1 week ago by Bryan Nichols

Light crowd has few questions at forum

A couple dozen people along with city officials attended Mayor Kyle Moore's second community-wide town hall at the Kroc Center on Tuesday night. Few asked questions though those who spoke up expressed support for the Mayor.

Moore detailed things he had accomplished in his first year in office, noting he is just a few weeks away from completing his first year. He said there were challenges such as the Newcomb Hotel fire and hydropower, but he was looking forward to the next few years.

"A lot of the problems that a first year mayor has need to be taken care of, but then after that, we can start focusing on some of the things we talked about in the campaign."

Moore said the Quincy Scorecard was in use and he unveiled a five year infrastructure plan, showing those in attendance a map of planned projects based on current funding.

Moore also went through the budgeting process that has been playing out over the last few weeks at council meetings. He also said that the city is continuing to go after a port project but is going to have to take a different approach to get a needed federal grant to fund the project.

He said hundreds of people have been engaged at the various forums throughout the year and anyone is welcome to call him at his office
