Just think liberals are ok with this because it was two cops defending themselves with guns, however for some reason they would rather any other citizen call 911, talk the situation down, pee their paints, or take the bullet.

Dems do not take care or own up to what they say, so, why should Reps be any different. Take the pledge, then, claim, "didn't understand the wording", 'didn't take is as 'is' ' - do as the Dems do. The Republican party will lose next term if Reince P and the old boys don't get their stuff together. Haven't heard from Reince lately, where is he on the Trump candidacy?…

Why is it the Dems, Obama, Hillary, many immediately jump to guns and crazies when ONLY two people are slaughtered? or nine as in SC church? But, every week, more than two or nine are shot and killed in South Side Chicago and none even utter a "God rest their young souls"? Would it be that all the Dems know that gun control is out of control in Chicago? That Chicago IL has more gun laws than many…

The Latino vote has already been bought and paid for by the Dems - to win this vote the Rs would need to lie more than the Ds do and I don't think this is possible.

Daniels, Dickerson and Krause will not seek re-election to Quincy School Board

Daniels, Dickerson and Krause will not seek re-election to Quincy School Board

2 years, 9 months ago by Jamie Busen

Three men are the only incumbents whose seats are up next April

Three Quincy School Board members whose seats are up in April announced during Tuesday night's Board meeting they won't run again.

Board President Bill Daniels, Vice President Steve Krause and Tom Dickerson each took turns making a statement at the start of the meeting.

Daniels will wrap up this third consecutive four-year term.

"I never had a single day of regret serving on the Board. I'm not leaving for any negative reasons," Daniels said. "It's time for me to focus on my businesses, growing my business and trying to create jobs."

He said every organization he's been involved in, he's hopefully left something in it better off than before. He believes that during his tenure, the District has operated with more clarity and uniformity.

Daniels also urges others who care about education to "go get yourself a petition" and run for one of the three open seats.

Dickerson and Krause echoed his statements, each saying their time on the Board was important to them.

Krause, who is on his first term, said he believed it was "everybody's responsibility to do public service."

Dickerson said the District's situations over the years have caused him "many sleepless nights" but he has "no regrets." He was appointed to fill a vacant Board seat and in April will have been on the Board 10 years.

So far, seven people have taken out petitions for the three open seats. Click here for that story.

School Board petitions must be turned in between December 17 and December 24
