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 meets in brief session

2 years, 10 months ago by

In a brief meeting Tuesday night the Quincy City Council passed a handful of resolutions and ordinances.

The meeting, held Tuesday due to the holiday, was 12 minutes long. Quincy Mayor John Spring was absent so Fourth-Ward Republican Alderman Mike Farha was nominated to sit in as Chair.

The Council passed two resolutions. One was to sell property at 535 Lind Street to Tonia Asher-Hemming for $500. The other was to approve the low bid from Ridder's Business Supply for $15,579 for a one-year contract with the City.

Two ordinances were adopted on third readings. The 2011 Fiscal Year Budget was amended to include an increase in the airport hangar fund (#513 capital outlay-buildings) by $210,000 and dept. service - loan payments by $38,325. The other ordinance had to do with amending a portion of the City code dealing with the zoning of landmarks and historic districts to add 1845 Jersey, 200 Chestnut, 1401 North Eighth and 813 South 15th.

During new business, Sixth-Ward Republican Alderman Jim Musolino asked that the proper officials look into forming an animal control commission.

Quincy City Hall will be closed Monday to observe the New Year's holiday. Central Services will also be closed, but there will be regular garbage and recycle pick up Monday. City buses will operate on the holiday schedule on Sunday. City Council will meet again Tuesday, Jan. 3.
