The crimes you listed all have victims, that's why they are and should continue to remain punishable. The guy smokin pot isn't hurting anyone, so no victim combined with proven failed policy, just like prohibition and just like gun control is my logic.

How about this for a brand strategy for GREDF - don't take public funds from local and county sources and then have as many Tri-State Summits as you want on your own dime.

Love the "tip of the iceberg".... If you trust anything that is calculated from a model that cannot be verified then I worry about you. I actually have experience with a few models like that which produced incorrect results. It's just some way for that place to get $$ to do something that is useless but sounds good to some since it agrees with what they already observe...in other words..they…

A lot of top scientists are fighting the global warming religion. These ICCC conferences have men with distinguished careers, not thieves like your activist friend, that try to damage any company that does not bow to the global warming campaign. http://climateconferences.heartland.org/fred-gold...

Personnel Committee recommends raises for City officeholders

2 years, 7 months ago by Bob Gough

The City of Quincy’s Personnel Committee is recommending raises for three citywide officials whose offices are up for election next year.

The salaries for mayor, city clerk and city treasurer would remain frozen at their current levels next year and then increase by 1.5 percent for the next three years in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

The mayor’s salary is $95,732 and the clerk and treasurer are each paid $61,984. The treasurer and clerk would receive $1,500 increases if they maintain the state certifications for their respective positions.

Salary for aldermen would remain at $100 per meeting

Aldermen Steve Duesterhaus (D-2nd Ward) and Jack Holtschlag (D-7th Ward) voted to move forward the ordinance to the full City Council, which must take action at least 180 days before the next election.

“I think they deserve a raise,” Holtschlag said.

Alderman Mike Farha (R-4th Ward) opposed the raises.

“I think it’s a bad time,” Farha said. “I would support a four year freeze on all elected officers.”
