And the people know it. In 2019, it is reported that 79,000 people left the state of ILLannoy. The population of Bloomington is about 75,000. Imagine that in one year the entire city of Bloomington population vanished.
Illinois lost more than 423,000 jobs in 2020. Thank Pritzker.
Oh, but haven’t you see the yards signs that say “THANK YOU GOVERNOR PRITZKER FOR PUTTING PEOPLE BEFORE PROFITS” ? They show me exactly what sort of person lives in that house.

Ronin, that is the mantra of the One Peoples’ Coalition, of which Jenn is a part, who support the election of Jackie, Lawler, and Kelby.
As I sit here in Tennessee I can’t help but wonder why that exodus number isn’t higher. We moved out of Illinois for this very reason six months ago and are sitting on 1 acre of land with house and tax bill was $700 bucks! Tennessee is open and businesses are not hogtied and forced to close.
