They sell tents at Wal-Mart. Based on the quality of work they do that would be to good for them.

I am happy for Rome also. Does the law require that all that time and money be spent to look for a new person when he was the man to start with? Just curious. All three were great picks but Rome has a lifetime of experience with this type of thing.

I wish it showed a line item cost for the Gov. Mansion (utilities, security, maintenance, etc.) I doubt that Rauner would live there either. "It would be cheaper to own a Hotel/Motel in Springfield and have the elected officials stay there when in town and the other rooms would help pay for it. The sale of those homes would buy a hotel/motel".

I LOVE seeing all the positive comments. Great choice made by the board. QPD is going in the right direction. Congrats Rome!

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
