the fliers said the tea party guy was trying to keep black people from voting. The other problem is they showed 1000's had already voted in the other primary so were no eligible. And the law says they have to intend to vote for that candidate in the general, not just cross over to elect the weaker candidate. Cochran is a big porker, bringing back like three times what MS pays in. Certainly…

I'm curious, Mr Gough, what was this public event and where did it take place? The governor's overbearing security guy claims that "it's not a public event" (although it certainly seems like he is lying about that, since there are lots of people in the background -- and they're gathered on what appears to be a public sidewalk). Obviously, the security guy's statement in no…

Mayor holds second town hall in first year

2 months, 4 weeks 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

@eyokley If Hillary doesn't run, there's a huge void and Nixon will have appeal. If she does, he has to be on the VP short list. #AmIWrong
