I'm not discounting response time but Quincy's fire stations are very well placed and the response times would not be affected that severely. It still boils down to the number of fire fighters who arrive initially on the scene that makes the biggest difference in fire fighting. If you don't have the manpower to do the job when you get there it doesn't matter how much time it takes…

I only have one question: "When asked about the matter Saturday, a spokesman for Quinn's Republican opponent, wealthy businessman Bruce Rauner, " Why do they have to title Bruce Rauner "wealthy"? Why not just "businessman Bruce Rauner" Questionable bias?

gfingers~ good points. I'm curious too. You say "they did a lot better than 2.2". Have you learned how much better yet If better at all? If I recall, all the workers too days without pay when asked when the aldermen didn't. That probably should be considered

Pokdot69~ I'm not sure what "argument" I was making. All I said was wow 1% thanks (as a tax payer I appreciate them holding the line) and how could anyone complain. Now I know though, some people are just unreasonable

February primary in place for Quincy election

1 year, 5 months ago by Bob Gough

Ken Hultz and Jared Holbrook have each filed petitions to run for 3rd Ward aldermanic seat as Republicans

There will be at least one primary in Quincy come February.

Ken Hultz filed his petitions Wednesday morning to run for Third Ward Alderman as a Republican. He is the second person to do so as Jared Holbrook filed his petitions for the same spot on Monday.

Two others have taken out petitions for 3rd Ward Alderman but have not filed them: Tom Ernst as a Republican and Mike Martin as a Democrat.

The seat will be open as the incumbent, Kyle Moore, is running for mayor. Moore is the lone Republican to have filed for mayor so far. Quincy Mayor John Spring has filed to run for re-election as a Democrat.

Two other incumbents have also filed their petitions: Treasurer Peggy Crim and 7th Ward Aldermen Jack Holtschlag. Both are Democrats.

Monday is the last day for Democrats and Republicans to file for the municipal election. To see who else has filed petitions for next year’s municipal elections, click here.

The primary election is February 26 and the general consolidated election is April 9.
