WarCry - Child shot and killed in Quincy - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
What I've heard from family friends (via Facebook comments) is that his mom was at work, so he was at a friends/babysitters. She was coming to pick him up when she got off work. Reportedly, he was coming out of the house and she was sitting in the car waiting for him when he was shot. Presuming this is all true, then 1) it should dispel any of this "Why was he out??" crap that doesn't matter,…

He was sitting right outside the front door waiting for his mother to pick him up. He was not unsupervised. This is what his family says. Please do not be too quick to blame parents. They have enough to deal with.

February primary in place for Quincy election

2 years, 4 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.
