Vote to Retain these Alderman on the

Quincy City Council

Patty Maples

6th Ward


Friends and Neighbors,

Hello, my name is Patty Maples and I currently serve on the City Council as one of your 6th Ward representatives. In 2022, I was honored to be selected to serve the remainder of Katie Awerkamp’s term as 6th Ward Alderman. I hope that I can count on your support, April 4, 2023, to continue to serve all of you in the 6th Ward, and all the residents of our community.

For those of you who do not know me, I am a lifelong Quincy resident. My husband Eddie and I have been married for 31 years. We raised our family in this community and are now blessed with ten grandchildren. I have a vested interest in the growth of our city and in representing the 6th Ward, a place that I have called home for nearly 30 years.

I retired from the City of Quincy in 2019 after serving 29 years in the Human Resources and Risk Management Departments. During that time, I served under four Mayors, including some of Quincy’s finest leaders. I developed a strong working relationship with many of Quincy’s current Aldermen and Department Heads. Most importantly, I have a unique understanding of the day-to-day operations of the city. That insight is something very few of the Aldermen ever have during their time on the City Council and that knowledge guides me to make decisions that are geared towards how the city can best serve not only our residents but also those from surrounding communities who work, shop, dine, and unwind in our beautiful community.

Experience matters, and if elected to a full term on the City Council, I promise to continue to use my knowledge and experience to make decisions that best represent all of you, my friends and neighbors of the 6th Ward, and all the residents of Quincy.

Thank you for your time and hope that I can count on your support on April 4th.

Ben Uzelac

7th Ward


Hi, I’m Ben. Like you, I care deeply about Quincy and our neighborhoods right here on the southwest side. As your alderman for the past four years, I have worked to improve our neighborhoods, our streets, and the water and sewer systems that serve each of the homes and businesses in the 7th ward.
