State Rep. Karina Villa, D-West Chicago, is partnering with Ralph Martire, executive director of the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability, to host a Fair Tax Town Hall at 7 p.m. July 17 at the St. Charles Municipal Center, 8 N. Riverside Drive. The meeting will discuss the impact that the Fair Tax reforms would have on local families, according to a press release from Villa's office.
“During my first session in Springfield, I worked to pass real reforms to put Illinois on firm financial footing by fixing our broken tax system,” stated Villa in the news release. “I am committed to building a stronger Illinois by building a stronger middle class, and that begins with ensuring the wealthy pay their fair share.”
Residents are invited to learn more about the initiatives to move Illinois forward and how the Fair Tax will affect them.
“After years of crisis, Illinois simply cannot afford any more devastating cuts to education and essential services that our most vulnerable residents rely upon, like the Autism Program and Meals on Wheels,” Villa stated. “I supported the Fair Tax to put Illinois on a more positive path, and I look forward to discussing this issue at my Fair Tax Town Hall. I hope to see you there.”
