Here is the endorsement which appeared in the Chicago Tribune:
ENDORSEMENT: CHICAGO TRIBUNE ENDORSES TONIA KHOURI FOR ILLINOIS HOUSE DISTRICT 49
Two candidates with divergent worldviews are running in this west suburban district.
Republican Tonia Khouri of Aurora is a small business owner and DuPage County Board member who says she will fight for balanced budgets and pro-growth business reforms.
That’s the way to bolster the middle class, in her view.
Her opponent is Democrat Karina Villa of West Chicago, a social worker and school board vice president, whose parents migrated to the United States from Mexico. She believes a graduated income tax and more money for education would boost the middle class.
We agree with Khouri.
Spurring job creation and keeping the tax burden low is what helps middle-income families.
KHOURI IS ENDORSED.
