I totally agree - now the "alleged" suspect has fled to Arizona doing his rap career but has a warrant out for his arrest from a failure to appear in Missouri for a Marijuana charge. Wonder how he got to leave, it would be a darn shame if Arizona got wind that he is a pot smoking, warrant holding kid that possibly shot a 12 year old.

What kind of tactics are those....expecting someone to following the laws that have been on the books for decades?????????? Are we supposed to look the other way for nice guys and throw the book at people we don't like? Nobody is denying Brian the right to have a garage.....he already has one attached to his house and a 2,800 sq ft detached one as well. He's not exactly suffering a garage…

No one can tell me the police don't know who did this.. They just need more evidence before making an arrest. Quincy talks too much for anything to go on here and the police not know about it. I think in this case a lot of threats have been made to keep a witness from coming forward. -Just my thoughts on the situation.

Hard to believe what some people ( with an attorney) will do.This man is a outstanding business man, neighbor, and friend,and is being harassed by a neighbor who doesn't want him to build a garage, just isn't right that you can use these kind of tactics these days

Quincy Mayoral candidate and Alderman Kyle Moore (R-3) took his turn speaking to the Quincy Tea Party on Tuesday night.

Moore spoke to a room of about 50 people at the Microtel Inn.

Quincy Mayor John Spring spoke at last month’s meeting.

Moore applauded the Tea Party for their willingness to get involved in politics and hold elected officials accountable. He also recounted the things he accomplished during his time as an Alderman including putting the city budget online and directing Ameren franchise money towards paying off debt.

Moore took time to lay out his ideas for the city if elected. Moore gave the audience a snapshot of a plan he announced a few weeks ago entitled “A Performance Driven Quincy.”

He said the plan focused on a commitment to listen, an equal expectation of service and what he calls “The Quincy Scorecard.”

“(It’s) a community-wide measuring tool to give residents the ability to judge our performance. The Scorecard will have data that is on easy to follow graphs, will be unbiased, and it will be the same data I get as mayor.”

Last week, Mayor Spring said Moore’s plan wouldn’t help the City and said that Moore “might not realize we measure everything already.”

Moore fired back during his speech.

“His mindset, that implementing best practices from some of our most successful cities and corporations in America is a bad thing is exactly why we need a change in City Hall. Good ideas don’t begin and end with one person or party. I will make you this promise today. When I am elected Mayor, if you have an idea that will benefit Quincy, I don’t care if you are Republican, Democrat, Independent, or if it’s an election year or an off year, I will support that idea 110% and work with you to make it happen,” Moore said.

Moore also took aim at the failed hydropower electricity project, a subject which didn’t come up during last month’s Tea Party meeting.

“He failed to offer clear leadership on his very own hydropower project, costing our city $5 million dollars. My opponent has said that losing $5 million is ok, because it didn’t raise your taxes. Lost on him is that $5 million could have been money for sidewalks, street repairs, sewer repairs, police cars, the list goes on and on and on… My vision for Quincy is not filled with legacy projects, but that at the end of my term in office, the legacy is good government.”

Other candidates for local office also spoke at the meeting including those running to replace Moore on the city council and others running for County offices. Tea Party Chairman Dan Musholt said they will also hear from local candidates at next month’s meeting.
