Right, if anyone read the report instead of getting the network tweets, they would not think "investigation blows up in Republicans’ faces as their own conspiracy theories are debunked". Actually those theories were confirmed, not pursued, or cleverly danced around. That tweet theme was the coordinated timely message from the networks, so the talking point people are satisfied, and smugly…

Nicely done, whhm... I got a good laugh out of this! :-) I'm guessing that the guy must have pumped exactly $10 worth, intending to pay with cash... but then he must've gotten distracted by his kids or something, and absent-mindedly drove away without paying. (A few years back, I got a call from a local gas-station regarding a similar incident; a buddy of mine was staying at my place,…

The only ridiculous drivel I've read here is you trying to justify this action by saying that both Republican and Democratic Presidents have acted unlawfully in the past. Please cite an example of a previous executive order that decreed ignoring laws on the books. Also do you really think Strawman can "incite discontent and perhaps violence"? After reading this opinion the thought of going home…
GuyFawkes10 - Quincy Regional Airport makes another late season push for 10,000 departures - Quincy, IL News - Qui
The ground shuttle would only kick in when needed at end of year and would not cost much for a few weeks. Maybe there are rules but wouldn't city employees with business in StL be counted as enplanements? I also think this is a wasteful gov subsidy but at same time the benefit is there and to let it slip away for want of 200 enplanments would almost be derelict in duty of city fathers. What if…

Quincy Mayor John Spring welcomed residents Friday night

Quincy Mayor John Spring invited people to see his new mayoral headquarters on 729 Hampshire Friday night.

Spring said he wanted this to just be a time to say hi to residents and have a good evening.

While moving forward in the mayoral election, Spring said he wants to begin with one message.

“We just want to keep Quincy moving forward, which I promised to do eight years ago, and I think I have a great track record. We’ve weathered through some really difficult financial times, and we’ve continued to have good balance budgets,” said Spring. “We’ve had eight years of balanced budgets, we’ve had three years in a row where we’ve lowered the citizen tax rate and at the same time we’ve continued to provide great city services.”

One aspect of Republican mayoral candidate and Third Ward Alderman Kyle Moore’s plan is the Quincy Scorecard. He proposes Quincy measure how much work the city is getting done for its residents through its city services.

When asked if Spring believes the scorecard would benefit Quincy, he said “No.”

“I think people are very pleased with their city services. I think that Moore may not realize we measure everything anyway. We know exactly how long it takes us to repair water service, we track all of that. The only thing we might not track is if we have people out putting coal patch in pot holes,” said Spring. “I think we deliver great city services, and I really believe that all the Quincy residents treasure the city services. After all, it’s what you see right outside your own window, it’s making sure your streets are cleaned, garbage is picked up and that everything works in your house.”

Spring for Mayor signs, notepads, pens, etc are available at the headquarters for supporters to pick up and display.
