In a QCOnline story about a poll showing Rock Island County residents want changes in county government, a quote from East Moline Democrat Gary Freeman was a cry for the return of the status quo:
“We need to stop the political gridlock and move forward…”
Ah yes—the good ol’ days when Republicans were few or absent entirely, when the entire bloated Democrat controlled county board served as a rubber stamp for the Democrat chairman.
This is what more diversity in government will bring you—gridlock!
To the past.
