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 Council approves Safe Routes for Schools bid

1 year, 6 months ago by Bob Gough

Advertising contract unanimously approved

The Quincy City Council unanimously approved the low bid for the Safe Routes for Schools project.

Aldermen voted 13-0 to approve the $2,950 bid for the AdForce Advertising Agency to develop commercials and brochures.

There was no discussion on the vote, which had been tabled twice when Alderman Terri Heinecke (R-7th Ward) had questions about the bid process in which Quincy Mayor John Spring said a mistake had been made when a local company was asked to bid a certain amount by an employee in the City's Planning and Development office.

Aldermen also heard first reading on the 2014 Fiscal Year budget. The $31.7 million spending plan will be voted in on two weeks.

Department heads will give the City Council details on their respective budgets this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the Kroc Center.

The Council also accepted two recommendations from the Plan Commission: Approval of the special permit to use property located at 439 N. 3rd for vehicle sales and service and a zoning change from M1 (Light Industrial) to D4 (Downtown Industrial) for the north part of property located at 220 Oak.
