This means nothing unless it's the E6 number. If it's the E3 number it's a lie. The real unemployment number , E 6, nation wide is close to 12%.

I'm not sure that is a suit - the thing on the shoulder doesn't look like anything I've seen on a suit. But I am OLD - I don't see well, I don't hear well and I go the bathroom every 10 minutes

Mayor gives broad overview in State of the City Address

1 year, 8 months ago by Bob Gough

His opponent, Republican 3rd Ward Alderman Kyle Moore, offers a response

Quincy Mayor John Spring offered a broad overview of the last four years and an update on the City's response to Thursday's snowstorm in his annual State of the City address. You can watch in the video above for most of the speech.

Spring spent the first part of his 45 minutes talk on the snowstorm. He then talked about jobs and worker training in an effort to bolster the city's population and keep some of the high school graduates home.

Spring also spent a good portion of the talk on infrastructure that the City has spent $27 million on infrastructure over the last 8 years and also pushed the lighting of the Bayview Bridge, which was a bi-partisan effort that will happen this fall.

He also said there could be movement this year on a new bridge over the Mississippi at Quincy to replace Memorial Bridge. He said there will be preliminary work done on potential locations, but there is nothing in the works on a funding mechanism to replace the bridge.

Spring also defended the funding for Quincy Regional Airport, saying the dollars come from airline fees and taxes for usage and funding such as the $1 million the city will receive for capital improvements after Cape Air hit 10,000 boarding "is not really being paid for out of your pockets."

Alderman Kyle Moore (R-3rd Ward) asked to provide a response. It is also listed in the gallery above,

PREVIOUS STORY:

Quincy Interim Director of Services Marty Stegeman says the city is attempting to provide its regular services on top of continuing to clear the streets of about 10 inches of snow.

Stegeman says crews will attempt to run their regular garbage and recycling routes today. So if you have Friday pickup, crews should take your refuse.

Stegeman also says Quincy Transit Lines buses are running on Snow Emergency routes only. Buses will not run on secondary streets.

Quincy Mayor John Spring said late yesterday he is still planning to deliver his annual State of the City address today at the noon gathering of the Quincy Exchange Club. The Exchange Club meets at America's Best Value Inn, 300 Gardner Expressway.
