Chris Christensen, Vice President at Neis Insurance Agency, was elected to the Cary Elementary District 26 school board in this year’s April 9 election.

Chris, a Cary resident, won the most votes in his crowded race of eight candidates for four available positions. As one of six newcomers running, he came out of the election with a total of 1,521 votes. Realizing that District 26 faces a unique set of challenges, Chris is now ready to face the school district’s issues head-on.

“I am really looking forward to working as part of a team because really that’s the only way this district can move forward,” said Christensen. “In this new position, my priorities are providing a sound educational foundation, promoting fiscal responsibility and championing special subjects and improved communication.”

As a father and local businessman, he feels well prepared for the duties of his elected position and is eager to make a positive impact in the lives of the students, teachers, school board and fellow community members.

Tom Neis Named to State Committee

Tom Neis, owner of Neis Insurance Agency, was recently appointed to the Governing Committee of the Illinois Automobile Insurance Plan (ILAIP).

Tom was named by Illinois Director of Insurance Andrew Boron as a public member of the Committee for a one-year term. Selected from a list of candidates jointly prepared by the Governing Committee and the staff at the Illinois Insurance Department, Tom is one of only two public members on the Committee.

“I was pleased to be asked to provide a front-line perspective and practical approach to regulation on insurance programs for the state, using over 20 years of experience in the industry,” said Tom Neis.

ILAIP was created in 1940 to provide automobile insurance coverage to those eligible risks who are unable to obtain coverage in the voluntary market. All insurers writing automobile insurance in Illinois are required to participate in the ILAIP by subscribing to the Plan. The Plan is administered by the Governing Committee.
