Another Moving Van Taking Family’s Possessions Out of Illinois

Earlier it was reported that Chris Jenner and his wife were moving to Florida.

Another family flees Illinois’ high taxes and bad winters.

That was the reason that he gave for resigning as President of the McHenry County College Board.

Jenner is also a Republican Precinct Committeeman in Cary and a former Cary Grade School Board member.

The two come from the Libertarian side of the political spectrum.

Another Moving Van Taking Family’s Possessions Out of Illinois — 29 Comments

  1. As the Great Escape from the DEMOCRAT “tax’em till they leave”
    plantation of Hellinois continues unabated.

    What a wonderful Christmas present – good luck !

  2. Best of luck to you, Chris (although WE’RE the ones that need it!)

  3. Any room in that truck for our lunatic compassionate conservative sunshine commenter? Take the opportunity now before the truck hits the road. Remember, liberalism is to blame for bad winters…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  4. No, liberal douchebag.

    It is the overpaid teachers and administrators that raise our taxes so high people can’t afford to live here.

    Then add in all the welfare programs for the losers who don’t want to work and you have the bankrupt shithole of Illinois.

    It’s like Puerto Rico with working electric.

  5. Another moving truck for a compassionate conservative freak, please? Tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  6. So sad. I thought when I saw the picture that ole’ honest abe had found some nads and was restarting his sad life in another state.

    Oh well.

    Lost in his miserable life forever.

    Angel, why would cal move?

    He still thinks he’s a big deal in McHenry County.

    Oh well…he still is at the public trough, and he still bitches about teachers who served a lot longer than he ever served anyone but the Skinners.

  7. Liberal douchebag Tom posting about what’s in his mouth. Maybe you and Angel should hookup.

  8. Wait a minute Cal…

    you actually went out and took photos of the moving truck?

  9. Thank you, Chris for putting up the good fight.

    You saved many many tax dollars from being wasted and unethically spent.

    Any community will be luck to have you!

    As far as IL and McHenry Co, another good one leaves.

    All the best to you.

    You have served us extremely well and have never taken a cent in return.

    You’re one of the good guys!

  10. ‘The Lorax’ must be a Miller. hehe

    Not a chance that Gasser will leave before his work is done and he’s totally vindicated.

    But you keep dreaming.

    That’s what liberal lunes do best.

  11. Wake up folks!

    We are losing the best!

    Want to turn the tide? Stop the “round mound”!!

    Vote out every RINO you can in the Primary!

  12. Remember the song that Angel is singing now down the road a few years when the pension issue is finally addressed.

  13. Chris and Laurie sad to see you go but I understand and may God Bless both of you.

    Best wishes, a speedy recovery, and blessings are headed your way.

  14. Dear compassionate conservative commenters: catch that moving van before it hits the road…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  15. Always enjoyed commentary and results of Chris Jenner’s work on the school board and College Board.

    He’s one in a million.

    Another one bites the dust.

    Or I mean-is on to greener pastures.

    He will be missed.

  16. I just hope all the belongings make it to their destination and nothing’s stolen.

  17. Soon, we Democrats will be the majority.

    Then the fun really begins here.

    Move if you’re wise.

    All ‘Conservatives’ I despise.

    Christians must pay

    Each and every day!

  18. Pointing out the obvious, for the less than observant commenters on this blog:

    They are moving because they sold their home to someone who is staying or moving INTO Illinois.

  19. Pointing out the really obvious, Illinois is one of the few states that is actually losing population, and the people moving in, on average, have considerably less wealth and income than the people moving out.

  20. If the home was in Woodstock, the buyer was likely a rental property investor buying property at fire sale prices and renting out at average $1400/month.

    Woodstock is nearly 40% rental homes (per Zillow).

    Rental property is not typically cared for as owner-occupied, as lower EAV is a primary driver (at 4.2% property tax rate).

    The more homes maintaining lower assessments, the higher the rate on all homes.

    Rental homes are not supposed to be given homestead exemptions, but according to McHenry County Chief Assessor, their office does not check and to his knowledge there is no requirement that local assessor s check either.

    People who move in thinking they are getting bargain prices on a home do not factor in that the price of that home will be driven inexorably lower, relative to inflation and other homes in other areas with normal property tax rates.

    This may be ok with people who plan to let banks and taxpayers take the risk on mortgage debt abandonment, but it still makes for sub-par investment returns: most people have the price of their homes appreciate over 20 years, while in Woodstock the price is flat.

  21. Who says that these people are from another state that is moving in?

    The statistics prove otherwise of the people leaving this state to the counter argument.

    Republicans and even Democrats are fleeing this State but especially people that have better income levels.

    Younger people are not moving here as you can tell by the school districts that are declining.

    So can any logical Democrat tell me how they are going to get jobs here?

    Going to fix the pension system?

    Going to decrease the deficit of Illinois?

    Lower the property taxes to 2% of assessed value?

    Would like to hear this plan and if you say tax the rich, well you’re dumber than you probably look!

  22. Regarding Chicago becoming a separate State per WIKI –

    In November 2011, State Representatives Bill Mitchell and Adam Brown introduced a proposal to make Cook County a state of its own.

    They felt that all of Illinois outside of Cook County should become a separate state, due to Chicago’s “dictating its views” to the rest of the state.

    Also about the northern counties from WIKI.

    Could McHenry County attach to WISC?

    Between 1840 and 1842, several northern counties in Illinois, including Jo Daviess County, Stephenson County, Winnebago County and Boone County, voted to reattach to Wisconsin, from which the counties were ceded to Illinois by Congress in 1818.

    The split was precipitated by the mutual antagonism between northerners and southerners due to social and political differences.

    The split was never realized due to lack of support from Chicago and Cook County, as the benefits of the Illinois and Michigan Canal linking northern to central and southern Illinois outweighed secession.

  23. Prairie Burner knows that Chris didn’t like TIFs, business tax abatement s and corporate welfare and takers.

    How manycatogories has She (prairie Burner) taken advantage of at the taxpayers expense?

  24. Dear pathetic former president of the McHenry County College Board, republican precinct committeeman in Cary and former Cary Grade School Board member from the Libertarian side of the political spectrum:

    All of us in the McHenry county sunshine blog have a farewell message for you. Read carefully after you finish revising the US Constitution that you carry everywhere.

    Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey, goodbye

    Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey, goodbye

    Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey, goodbye…

    Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock…
