Khouri uses social media to make a point about high taxes
A recent post on Republican state House candidate Tonia Khouri's Facebook page hit close to home.
The photo was of a "Now Leaving Illinois" highway sign, which then said "Leaving so soon? Was it something we taxed?"
Gayle Finnell Lee replied: “It would be funny if not so true. We just sold all our rental property so we are down to one overtaxed home.”
Vying against Democrat Katrina Villa to fill Rep. Mike Fortner's (R-West Chicago) 49th House District seat, Khouri also used social media to thank volunteers June 30, who labored for her campaign in almost triple-digit temperatures.
“If someone knocks on your door, please be kind - we’re just trying to make our county and state a better place,” Khouri wrote.
Tax reform and fiscal accountability are key, according to Khouri, who said on her Facebook page that she “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."
