I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

Minimum wage it for minimum employees. A person should be able to work for any wage they want too without government interference.

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

City of Quincy beginning HR interviews this week

Three finalists will be interviewed

The City of Quincy is interviewing three finalists this week for the position of human resources director. 

Doug Olson left the position earlier this month to take a job with Hollister-Whitney. 

Director of Administrative Services Glenda Hackemack said there were seven applicants for the job. 

The three finalists will interview with Hackemack and the City Council's Personnel Committee and the Hiring Committee. They will narrow it down to two to refer to Mayor Kyle Moore for his decision and then he'll take his appointment before the City Council. 

At Monday night's brief City Council meeting Aldermen heard the latest Sales Tax revenues for February, $665,464 and Home Rule Sales Tax of $643,720.
 
They also heard the second reading of an ordinance to allow Adams Telcom a nonexclusive franchise to install a cable system in Quincy and to allow the sale of beer and wine at the new restaurant going into Quincy Regional Airport. 
 
Those items will receive a third and final reading and a vote at next week's meeting. 
 
Mayor Kyle Moore was absent and Alderman Mike Farha presided over the meeting.
