There has been a lot of info about the school board election in the media. But, Are the same people that were on the Quincy Park Board running? Or, maybe that election isn't held at the same time the School Board Election? Sorry to see Jeff M. go, although I didn't agree with him all the time.

What property of the city does Comsast use? The biggest chunk of property leased to them is probably Amerens power poles, unless they have buildings residing on city property that I am not aware of. the fee paid to the phone company is paid by whoever is leasing the line. If Adams provides DSL to a customer in quincy and they do not have any plant in the area but AT&T does Adams can rent the line…

I think Ameren pays also. Maybe we should put up toll booth to enter city so we can tax the people from out of town for using our services. I guess we get them at the cash register but we pay that also

Ill. Supreme Court won't hear term limits appeal

5 months ago Associated Press

Proponents will seek a hearing with Appellate Court

From Associated Press:

The Illinois Supreme Court decided Thursday not to immediately consider whether voters should get a chance to limit terms for state legislators.

Without comment, the court took a pass on an appeal of a circuit court's June ruling that barred the question from appearing on election ballots, along with a second proposal that would have asked voters if they wanted an independent way of drawing political boundaries.

But Mark Campbell, executive director of Term Limits and Reform, said proponents would file Friday for a hearing with a state appellate court.

Constitutional questions decided in circuit courts go directly to the Supreme Court. Campbell said the high court's decision Thursday simply indicates that justices want the matter to wend its way through the typical process.

The appeal will seek an expedited hearing, with deadlines approaching for printing ballots for the Nov. 4 election, Campbell said.

"No matter who wins or loses at the appellate level, it's going to wind up in front of the Supreme Court anyway," Campbell said.

The decision appears to be a setback, at least momentarily, for the gubernatorial campaign of Republican Bruce Rauner. He has made term limits a touchstone in his campaign to "shake up Springfield."

The Winnetka businessman's group, the Committee for Legislative Reform and Term Limits, proposed sending legislators home after 8 years in office. It would also change the sizes of the House and Senate and make it more difficult for the General Assembly to override a governor's veto.

A Rauner spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
