Incorrect. They are to lead based on what their constituents want.

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. College admissions and job recruiters look at and react to the private school education differently than they do to a public school education. This is not without good reason…

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. Seems kind of tyrannical in a way, which to me goes against the principals of the constitution.

Could Illinois' next governor undo same-sex marriage?

5 months, 1 week ago Alex Keefe, Curious City

Bill to legalize same-sex marriages passed by the state House in November

From Alex Keefe, Curious City:

Chicagoan Christie Pettitt-Schieber has spent a lot of time thinking about the future of same-sex marriage in Illinois. Apparently, so has her girlfriend of two years.

As Pettitt-Scheiber tells it: “She goes on Etsy all the time, and she will, pull up, like, hundreds and hundreds of engagement rings, and then force me to look at the website and go, ‘Do you like this one? Do you like this one? What do you think about this one?’”

But before they take the plunge, Pettitt-Schieber, 26, asked Curious City a more fundamental question about Illinois’ gay marriage law, which was approved by the legislature late last year and is set to take effect statewide on June 1st.

Could the next governor reverse the same-sex marriage legislation that just passed?

Gay marriage has been a hot-button political issue in Illinois for a few years, and the allegiances and beliefs involved don’t always break along party lines. After months of furious lobbying and nose-counting by both backers and opponents, the bill to legalize same-sex marriages passed by a narrow margin in the state House in early November.

But the foundation of Christie’s question gets to an apolitical issue: the relationship between the branches of Illinois government.
