pjohnf - Quinn: New controls after Medicaid paid for dead - Quincy, IL News -
Why is it with government bureaucrats that they always say they're going to close the barn door after the horse has left the barn? Millions in fraudulent payouts and now they find out. Only goes to prove once again that government is not the solution but government is truly the problem.
pjohnf - Rauner details some immigration views - Quincy, IL News -
Anti-illegal immigration is not anti-legal immigration and Quinn knows it. It's disappointing that Rauner would side with the illegal immigration/amnesty crowd. It's insane and wrong to reward illegal behavior, illegal immigration, with any pathway to citizenship. Big business wants cheap labor and democrats want a new dependent class of voters and that's why both support immigration…

Tell that to people (Private Sector, of course) who have taken pay CUTS, shortened hours or loss of benefits just to remain employed. Somehow, I feel your comments come more from attitude and opinion than knowledge and experience.

Spring outspent Moore in the first quarter, according to campaign reports

As expected, spending in the Quincy's mayor's race topped $200,000 between the two campaigns.

Reports to the Illinois State Board of Elections were due on Monday.

The committee for Quincy Mayor John Spring, the two-term Democratic incumbent who lost to Republican Alderman Kyle Moore last week, received $105,455 in contributions and another $5,802 in in-kind contributions during the first quarter of 2013.

Spring spent $113,383 on his re-election effort during the first quarter. Spring spent $423 in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Moore's committee received $68,391 in contributions and $1,361 in in-kind help during the first quarter. Moore entered the quarter with $36,402 on hand.

Moore spent $81,756 during the first quarter. He spent $3,871 during the fourth quarter of 2012.

With the election being on April 9, the campaigns do not have to report expenditures that occurred during April until the second quarter report, which comes out in July.
