They sell tents at Wal-Mart. Based on the quality of work they do that would be to good for them.

I am happy for Rome also. Does the law require that all that time and money be spent to look for a new person when he was the man to start with? Just curious. All three were great picks but Rome has a lifetime of experience with this type of thing.

I wish it showed a line item cost for the Gov. Mansion (utilities, security, maintenance, etc.) I doubt that Rauner would live there either. "It would be cheaper to own a Hotel/Motel in Springfield and have the elected officials stay there when in town and the other rooms would help pay for it. The sale of those homes would buy a hotel/motel".

I LOVE seeing all the positive comments. Great choice made by the board. QPD is going in the right direction. Congrats Rome!

Frankenhoff said it was Frericks' call as to if the job was filled and who would fill it.

U.S. Congressman Schock walks Dogwood Parade

Schock talks pending bills, Benghazi hearings and Lois Lerner

U.S. Congressman from Illinois Aaron Schock walked with a sea of yellow-shirted supporters through the Dogwood Parade Saturday.

Schock was happy to be in Quincy.

“This is one of Quincy’s biggest events. I’m happy to say that this cycle; I’ve been able to represent all of Adams County. This is a way for me to kick of the 2014 re-election campaign with the first parade right here in Quincy.”

While discussing pending House bills in the Senate, Schock said it’s very frustrating.

“People elected us to solve problems. There’s no perfect legislation. We have two bodies of the legislature for a reason and certainly, if the senate wants to modify our legislation they should do so. But to simply just sit on the bills and to refuse to fix problems facing our country shows a lack of responsibility.”

Schock said there are over 200 pieces of legislation that are waiting to be voted on in the Senate.

“A lot of them affect our area- everything from tax reform to entitlement reform to our budget. If you’re in the agriculture industry, the EPA is tacking on more regulations. For example, regulating farm dust as a pollutant. This goes far beyond the powers of the federal government as they should be based on what our constitution says about states’ rights and individual property rights.”

To learn Schock’s opinion on the upcoming Benghazi hearings, the Mainstreet PAC and Lois Lerner, watch the video posted above.
