Unfortunately, the dems were able to put that one little word "intentionally"...meaning that they took a page out of Obama's book and will now all claim they didn't know anything about what, if anything, was being held from the public...

The one that was supposed to be passing out the petitions here in Adams County-- the one who signed it at the bottom, and got paid the money per signature, was from California. That was one of the reasons some of those petitions were discounted in Adams county.

Care to back up your statement with any facts? Also be sure to recognize that businesses don't really pay taxes....consumers do.

Saying and doing are different. My bet is that you would be for term limits but as demonstrated, what the people want will not happen, same with illegal immigration.

What petition for the Illinois libertarian party was passed around in California? And I would also be interested in why they didn't read what they were signing.

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
