I agree on that and made no claims otherwise. I didn't mention in a car, you are. If there is a seat belt check and see I have it on, why do they need to see my ID? Probably because it's more than a seatbelt check in reality. Kind of like the dog that "hits" on a car that has no drugs in it can be used to search the car.

Do you expect the voters to make a difference? I don't. Can those actually paying taxes simply move out of Illinois? Where would these hypocrites get their pay checks then? Once the taxpayers are gone, the over taxed businesses would follow, they couldn't get tax breaks, only thing left in IL is the politician, the overworked gov't worker, and the subsidized IL resident!

The police operate under the constitution. They know what those are, they deal with it day in and day out. They are kept abreast of court rulings one-way or the other. If you feel they acted unconstitutionally on the street, that is adjudicated in a court room in front of a judge, NOT on the street. You do not get to decide on the street what is constitutional or not. The police know what is and what…

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.
