"The Hinsdale teachers’ union is willing to reduce end-of-career raises to 3 percent over each of four years." Why should the Unions have anything at all to say about end-of-career raises? That practice should be illegal, period. Pensions on the whole should NOT be based on end of career salary! They should be based on the SSI formula, and thus we would not even be having this discussion. This is…

Hobart wants Everything from Quincy! Hobart in reality is giving nothing to Quincy! They get the lot for $1 and the city writes it off. Maybe in 10 years Quincy may get something out of the deal. I doubt it. There will be a lot of $'s on the table to make up. It sounds like a very sweet deal for the developer, especially in 10 years when they sell! Quincy to provide $1.8 million in equity?

As much as pay-for-performance sounds good I believe that only works if the teacher goes with the students from grade-to-grade. One year of being dealt a random deck of kids is, I believe, impossible to compare between teachers. Why can't a grade school teacher go from grade to grade with their class? Why can't a middle school English/Math teacher go from grade to grade?

Also please explain what benefits this brings to quincy as a whole not just to the downtown.

Says he thinks he can build on the support he had in 2010

Illinois State Senator and 2010 Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Brady says he might run again for the state’s top office.

Brady, who lost to current Governor Pat Quinn, says he’s waiting a few more months to jump into the race.

“I’m trying to avoid starting a campaign until June. I’d like through this legislative session because I do believe that some of the issues we’re facing will require bipartisan support and I’d like to keep the campaigning and the politics out of it until after this General Assembly,” said Brady.

Brady, who carried all but four counties in 2010 but still lost the election, said he thinks this election will be different.

“(There’s a) huge number of people in the general election who think we need to finish the job. We came 16,000 votes short and so I think we can build on that. I don’t think you can underestimate the political skills of Pat Quinn. This guy’s made a career and a living off of fooling voters and it won’t be an easy race, but I think this time we’ll get the job done.”

Brady said he thinks Quinn will have a tough primary if Attorney General Lisa Madigan decides to run. He also said he thinks Quinn deserves to lose to her if she does run.

Brady made his comments Thursday on The Morning Meeting on Talkradio 930 WTAD. You can listen to the full interview here.
