Sure hope all the new folks promise not to suck the public teat of Health insurance and pension plan for a part time job. We taxpayers could save $20,000 for every current alderman we turn out if the new person would swear off the public nipple.

Guy, I AM a travel consultant, and we don't buy tickets from airlines like that - all airline tickets are name specific. The only time we might have a block of tickets is for groups, and those have deposits and deadlines attached to them. So that would not work. I love flying out of the Quincy Airport. Jarred Hester is doing a great job there, but another airline is probably not going to come…

Community Foundation announces matching grant program

2 years ago by Mary Griffith

On its 15th anniversary, the Community Foundation of the Quincy area announced a $15,000 matching grant program for each of the 13 counties it serves.

Community Foundation Chairman Brian Ippensen says that means if a local fund committee in the county can raise $15,000, the gift will automatically be doubled by the Foundation.

The funds will be a permanent endowment to be used only in that county and only as local citizens decide.

Pike County, Illinois has already started the process. For the past four years, a local committee has been raising funds.  Now that group is going to try to receive the $15,000 match.

Ippensen says all 13 counties can achieve this permanent endowment to help provide for their local needs. He says now is a good time to consider a gift since the donors money will double and will be restricted for use in the county they designate only.
