ENDORSEMENT: Tonia Jane Khouri for Ill. House in the 49th District GOP primary
Tonia Khouri is running for the Legislature in this far west suburban district to replace retiring state Rep. Mike Fortner.
She has used the last two years to gain a better understanding of issues affecting the state, and we endorse her.
Khouri, a DuPage County Board member, owns Aurora-based Green T Services, a home services company offering everything from lawn care and carpet cleaning to remodeling. It’s a business she and her husband built up from a two-person operation to one that has almost 200 employees — all of whom earn more than the minimum wage. She knows how to make a business work and balance a budget.
Khouri’s top priority is to ensure property taxes are levied fairly around the state so every area is paying its fair share. She thinks the state’s biggest issue is its declining population, which she says is largely due to high property taxes. She also says the state’s income tax increase should have been accompanied by reforms.
