What I've heard from family friends (via Facebook comments) is that his mom was at work, so he was at a friends/babysitters. She was coming to pick him up when she got off work. Reportedly, he was coming out of the house and she was sitting in the car waiting for him when he was shot. Presuming this is all true, then 1) it should dispel any of this "Why was he out??" crap that doesn't matter,…

Personnel Committee recommends raises for City officeholders

2 years, 5 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.”
