" what is your source for this concept that we have exited a natural 30 year cooling period? ' You maintain an amazing ability to ignore the obvious. Those articles is Newspeak and Time addressed the 30 years of abnormally cooler temperatures. Since that we rebounded from about 1980 to 1998, and since then it has been flat, but still warmer than 1979. It is not a "concept" about a…

While you may not trust ice volume levels, which is your prerogative, you must certainly agreethat analyzing only 2D measurements of ice extent is looking at ... just the tip of the iceberg? Actually, while climate is complicated, we've been able to predict over the last couple of decades what will happen with CO2 increasing. Air temps will go up, ice will melt, oceans will heat, land temp readings…

It 's hilarious that you accuse the scientific community of lying to get funding while defending Scott Taylor's garbage article. Scott Taylor is employed by the Heartland Institute whose accidentally disclosed or stolen memos included gems like this: Increased climate project fundraising Our climate work is attractive to funders, especially our key Anonymous Donor (whose contribution dropped…

CoolEdge, what is your source for this concept that we have exited a natural 30 year cooling period? Your basic argument, I take it, is that the earth has natural cycles and we are in a natural warming period following a warming period. Most scientists understand that the Earth requires some force to cause it to heat or cause it to cool. So they look for causes of these periods of cooling/heating…

Quincy GOP Aldermen get involved in Sullivan-Frese race

Quincy GOP Aldermen get involved in Sullivan-Frese race

After years of seeing Quincy Democrats reap Chicago campaign cash, Republicans are getting in the game

Quincy and Adams County Republicans have decried Chicago money coming into local campaigns for years, but it now seems the philosophy has become ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’.

Citizens for a Better Quincy, a Political Action Committee formed by a majority of the City of Quincy’s Republican Aldermen, has received $60,000 over the last 10 days from Chicagoland interests. The PAC has served as a pass-through for those funds to be used for the production and placement of television ads opposing State Sen. John Sullivan (D-Rushville).

The PAC only had $1616 in its account following the filing of the third quarter disclosure statement on October 12.

But then on October 16, the PAC reported receiving $20,000 from Otto of Carpentersville, Illinois and $10,000 from Patricia Foglia of North Barrington, Illinois. Otto is the company of Jack Roeser, who has been a politically active conservative for decades. On that same day, the PAC paid $10,000 to Campaign Grid, LLC and $20,000 to Multi Media Services, Inc. for production and placement of television ads opposing Sullivan (Click the video above this report).

Then on October 24, the PAC reported receiving $20,000 from Bruce Rauner of Chicago and $10,000 from Richard Uihlein of Lake Forest, IL. Then yesterday, the PAC paid Craft/Media Digital $30,000 for production and placement of ads opposing Sullivan.

All four donors have track records of contributing to conservative candidates throughout the state.

Citizens for a Better Quincy has given $1,000 to the state senate campaign for Randy Frese.  Rauner also gave the Frese campaign $5,000 today.  

Citizens for a Better Quincy was formed in April 2010 with a stated purpose to “support conservative aldermanic and mayoral candidates in Quincy, IL”. The PAC was amended in January 2011and the purpose changed to “elect conservative candidates”.  

Alderman Paul Havermale (R-3rd Ward) is the chairman of the PAC and Alderman Dan Brink (R-6th Ward) is the treasurer. Other members include Alderman Lexze Mann (R-1st Ward), Republican 4th Ward Aldermen Tony Sassen and Mike Farha, Alderman Kyle Moore (R-3rd Ward), Alderman Mike Rein (R-5th Ward), Alderman Jim Musolino (R-6th Ward) and Alderman Terri Heinecke (R-7th Ward).

“Everyone has the right to give and I applaud these people who have stepped up to support what they believe,” Farha said. “On the other side, we’ve seen what the teachers’ union has done in a big way.”

Moore, who has announced his candidacy for mayor, said the PAC was formed as a “way to show we are serious about a long-term conservative vision for Quincy.”

“I think it’s our way to use our contacts to make sure our voice is heard in this election,” Moore said. “We aldermen are fighting Springfield as they try to take more and more money from Quincy. The only way to stop that is a change in leadership and that starts with the Sullivan-Frese race.”
