Republican state House candidate Tonia Khouri
State House candidate Tonia Khouri is slated to hold a “Cocktails in the Wine Garden” meet-and-greet with supporters at Fiora’s on June 28.
Khouri, who running against Democrat Katrina Villa to replace Rep. Mike Fortner (R-West Chicago) in the 49th House District, is scheduled to be on hand for the two-hour event, which kicks off in Geneva at 5 p.m.
Since launching her bid, Khouri has made greater fiscal responsibility and property tax reform staples of her campaign. She recently spoke out in opposition of the recently passed $38.5 billion state budget, pointing out that Illinois Policy Institute has already said that the plan is at least $1.5 billion out of balance.
“We need property tax relief, governmental reforms and accountability in Springfield, and we need them now,” Khouri recently posted on Facebook. “Or the exodus will continue.”
