eaglebeaky - \'Interview\' pulled after threat; U.S. says North Korea behind Sony hack - Quincy, IL News - Quincy
Well said, whiner1!!! Somebody at Sony Pictures Entertainment was desperately trying to be edgy and topical when they approved the production of The Interview (in spite of the fact that the creators of South Park already poked fun at North Korea a decade ago). Truth be told, the screenplay for The Interview probably should have found its' way into the trash can a long time ago. No theater owner…

A public figure that did a good job mixing things up. I did not agree with him many times, but glad he was there to balance the board(he really does love the sound of his own voice). It is important to know when to exit the stage, I think he is doing that at the right time.

VIDEO: Andrzejweski, Cross pitch "Save Illinois Taxpayers" plan

At same stop, State Sen. candidate Frese says he has no plan that cuts $1 billion from education

House Minority Leader Tom Cross spent Wednesday flying around the state of Illinois with Adam Andrzejewski to promote the “Save Illinois Taxpayers” pledge.

The two men stopped at Quincy Regional Airport and were joined by State Rep. Jil Tracy (R-Quincy) and Republican State Senate candidate Randy Frese.

The three-pronged approach is to call for a freeze on local property taxes for three years, comprehensive audits and a repeal of the 67 percent state income tax increase passed last year.

 

"Taxpayers, Families and seniors are being taxed to death in Illinois," Andrzejewski said. "We must freeze property taxes, stop the fraud and mismanagement and cut taxes."

 "For years, Democrats in Illinois have over-spent, over-borrowed and over-taxed Illinois families," Cross said. "Their plan has driven jobs out of our state and created record debt.  Illinois needs a new direction that focuses on holding the line on taxes, balancing our budget and creating jobs."

During the airport visit, Frese said State Sen. John Sullivan’s newest television campaign ad blasting his education plan isn’t true because he hasn’t endorsed an education plan and he never said he wanted to cut $1 billion in education funding.

“I’m pro-education and pro-educator…my wife is a teacher, her sister is a teacher in Knox County and my mother-in-law is a retired teacher,” Frese said. “At no time have I endorsed in my campaign an education plan of any type and at no time have I said I want to cut $1 billion from the education budget in the state of Illinois. To say so is untruthful.”

The Sullivan ad says WTAD Radio is the source of the information during an appearance on the Morning Meeting in February. Click here to listen to the source.

Frese said Sullivan needs to focus on his own record, which includes funding cuts to Western Illinois University and “stop making things up”.
