OK we can link 2 ballot measures together - we raise the min wage to $481 per hour. That way everybody who works in Illinois will make more than $1 million. Add the 3% surcharge on top then the government will have more money than it could ever need - at least for a year or 2. For those who think this doesn't make sense - it doesn't but it makes as much sense to me as this surcharge does.…

Aren't local community Fire Boards autonomous from any state requirements and can determine their own hiring standards? I don't believe Quincy's Fire Board gives any preference or points to applicants for prior training or education for appointment to the fire department but they should.

Don't the rich already pay more in income taxes? 6% of a million is more than 6% of say $50,000, so the rich pay more now. Democrats are using these ballot measures to wage class warfare and increase voter turnout for democrats. Democrats don't care one bit about the little guy, they just want to maintain their power and control with these ballot questions.

Quincy Park Board now taking applications for Executive Director position

1 month, 3 weeks ago by 0

The Quincy Park Board of Commissioners is now accepting applications for the position of Executive Director.
 
Executive Director Ed Seger announced in February he was leaving sometime this year. He has been executive director since March 2012 and served as Director of Parks for 12 years before that. Seger is leaving because his wife accepted a job in another city. 
 
The seven member board is responsible for the selection of the next Executive Director, and is not limiting prospective candidates to those with park and recreation experience.
 
Interested applicants are asked to visit www.quincyparkdistrict.com to download an Application Packet and for more information on application procedures, important dates and a job description.
 
Application deadline is July 3, 2014.  The Board will confidentially review all applications on July 9, 2014, in closed session.
 
For more information on the Executive Director Search, you can contact the Board at ExecutiveDirectorSearch@quincyparkdistrict.com.
