As the parent of QND grads and a QND alum myself and the parent of current QHS students, I can say that the biggest advantage that QND supplies to its graduates is the intangible "cache" attached to a private school education.

It seems pretty obvious his point was, business "A" trying to make a living is interfering with the city of Quincy to do a cheaper job so to make things "fair" we will just make it illegal to do business with anyone other than us.

Does the former City of Quincy engineer Jeff Steinkamp's name appear anywhere in this report? He ended up landing on his feet with a sweet IDOT ghost job after he got canned.
