Mayoral civility

I WAS INVITED to a mayoral forum Tuesday night by Quincy Regional Crime Stoppers and the Quincy Police Department Citizen's Police Academy Alumni.. It was informative and well-attended. I suggest you find out more yourself about the two candidates.

Incumbent Kyle Moore in a Republican. He is being challenged by independent Jeff Van Camp, a city alderman. I will not endorse either man publicly, but you can ask if you see me.

The two men agree on many subjects, and have very different ideas about others. If you live in Quincy, I challenge you to find out more and make an informed decision at the polls in April.

What I most appreciated was that the tone stayed civil and there seems to be respect between the two men. The last mayoral election got a little ugly and it was unnecessary. Both men have the right idea now, and I hope it stays that way.

The ugly head of bipartisan politics has no place at the local political table. If you are a proud R or D, good for you. It doesn't make a bit of difference to me.
