AYHSMB - Voter rights, crime victim rights amendments set for fall ballot so far - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJo
"If you and I both go to the polling place to vote, and I'm freely allowed to vote but you have to pay $20 before you're allowed to exercise that right.... that's not fair." Your words. So, how did YOU get a free ID? You can't vote if you're not a citizen. How did you prove you were citizen? Thomas Paine said…

The problem isn't just dead people voting. It's also living people voting multiple times. On of the Carolina's recently identified 35,000 voters with the same names and date of birth voted more than once in 2012. Most likely these are college students but 35,000 is a major case of potential fraud

Sorry I forgot about John. But Don was before him. Don't know if there was anyone before. I think the Deputy Mayor filled it then.

Small business Saturday is tomorrow

1 year, 4 months ago by Denise Donley

Downtown businesses have deals for shopping

Buying online is easy, but it drains the local economy of buying power.

The purpose of small business Saturday is to pursuade local residents that money earned in this community should be spent in this community whenever possible.

Economists agree that every dollar spent at a locally owned business turns over seven times in the local economy.

Spending your dollars in your hometown helps everyone prosper.

Jerry-Lynn Malone owns and operates premiere diva at 725 Hampshire in the Historic Quincy Business District.

Malone wants every Quincyian to visit downtown Saturday and rediscover local shops.

“I not only encourage you, but we need you downtown. The small business and operators, we rely on you and making purchases. I hope to see your smiling faces on Saturday along with several of the other folks. Come in and introduce yourself, see what we have new, see if
there’s we can help you with on your holiday gift giving list,” said Malone. “This money will stay local. We put it right back in the community. We really do care about you, and we appreciate your business. Uptown, downtown or right down here is the great place to be
on Saturday. Don’t spend all your money on Black Friday- Small Business Saturday is really where it’s at.”

Other local merchants will also have special pricing on Small Business Saturday.
