Cory would never have taken her own life leaving her four children behind. She loved them dearly and as someone who knew her, I know she would not have done that. Period.

Make sure you understand what hearsay is. Hearsay is second hand not direct knowledge. If I tell you I am gong to kill you, you have direct knowledge and can testify to that. If I tell you I am going to kill you and you tell your neighbor I said I was going to kill you, your neighbor doesn't have direct knowledge. He has hearsay. Whether or not that would be admissable in court, depends on…

Third Ward alderman talks about jobs and leadership in opening remarks

 
 

Quincy Alderman Kyle Moore kicked off his mayoral bid Saturday morning amongst friends, family and supporters.

Moore, using the backdrop of the Mississippi River next to the Elk’s Lodge, where he is a member, said volunteer and elected public service has given him an opportunity to give back and he wants to continue to do that as mayor.

“The biggest honor of my life has been to serve the 3rd Ward as one of their representatives on the Council,” said Moore, who won his only aldermanic term in 2009.  "Over the next four years we will work to create an environment where head of household jobs will thrive, where we are second to none in city services and where we fiscally plan for our future so our children won't be using the tax dollars of tomorrow to pay for the problems of today."   

Moore said he was proud of helping pass placing the City Budget online, creating a 21 Day Online Public Inspection period for proposed budgets, and helping to set aside $1.5 million of new revenue towards the reduction of debt. 

Moore said his experience on the council has been rewarding, but "over those years I have become disheartened by the course our administration has set."
Moore said that his decision to run for Mayor came about after watching Quincy Mayor John Spring fail to stand up for a citizen when he was denied the right to speak to the City Council, fail to offer clear leadership on the hydro-power project which cost Quincy over $5 million, and fail to offer a plan to address job losses in Quincy.

"If we want an administration that will give Quincy the leadership that will be there for them, we will need a new mayor,” Moore said.

 

“Despite the news of job losses at Gardner Denver, Harris Corporation and other businesses in town, they have failed to offer a plan to create and maintain an environment where head of household jobs can be created and sustain,” Moore said. “In my conversations with those residents it is clear what we need to focus on over the next four years. We all know someone who is unemployed or has simply stopped looking for work in Quincy. Every year we see many of our greatest natural resources in Quincy- our children - leave, with most not returning. We are no longer surprised when we hear the news of another business closing or moving to another state. Over the next four years we will work to create an environment where head of household jobs can flourish so everyone in Quincy can have the life-fulfilling career they dreamed about as a child.”

Spring will make his re-election bid official Monday morning. Former Quincy Tea Party leader Steve McQueen and JWCC Board of Trustees member Reggie Coleman also took out petitions.
