Can you explain how one gets blamed for good stuff happening?? The reason they unjustifiably get blamed for the bad stuff is because they unjustifiably take the credit for the good stuff. You are lecturing us about being "truthful" when talking about Bill Clinton?? "I'm sure you were better off then you have ever been financially" - are you a world class athlete in conclusion jumping??

One example ... the advanced math program for some reason let the new guy take on the calculus class, and he worked hard, had kids over to his house for extra work, and iirc, had his kids do better than any before on achievement tests. I tested out of eight hours of college calculus after his class. Next year I went to the upper bleachers where he was sitting during a Blue Devil game, to see how…

With everything we have going on in this state and they are on a raw milk kick? Americans have been buying and selling farm produce at the local level for centuries, just leave it alone. Why do they always have to step in and put their grubby little paws on every frickin thing we do? I am a consumer of raw milk, and I am capable of nourishing my own body, leave me and my farmer alone and do something…

Moore to appoint Ray as city's comptroller

Legal team to go before aldermen again on Monday night

Mayor Kyle Moore is appointing Sheri Ray as the City’s new comptroller.

Ray worked as the deputy comptroller under Ann Scott, who Moore says remains as a City employee as of Friday as is City Engineer Jeff Steinkamp.

Along with Ray’s appointment, there is an item on the Quincy City Council agenda for Monday night that deals with the release of city personnel. It is expected that Scott and Steinkamp will be officially released following a closed executive session meeting.

Ray has been with the City since April 2000.

Moore said Ray, if appointed, will make $77,225, which is less than the $89,000 Scott was making. Moore said the city will not fill Ray’s position with a full-time person, but will fill it with a part-timer.

Moore also said IT Director Jim Murphy will assume the city’s purchasing duties. Moore said Murphy will receive no additional salary with those duties.

“I appreciate these city employees stepping up so we can leave a position unfilled,” Moore said.

Moore said the City will save nearly $78,000 by not filling the position or paying anyone extra to perform the purchasing duties.

Moore said there are ads on the City’s Website for an administrative assistant as well as for the Director of Administrative Services position.

Moore’s legal team of Corporation Counsel Lonnie Dunn, Assistant Corporation Counsel Bruce Alford and City Attorney Ryan Schnack are also expected to be approved after being tabled last week.
