CHARLES, Ill. – As a part of her efforts to continue conversations about the Fair Tax with local families, state Rep. Karina Villa, D-West Chicago, recently partnered with Ralph Martire, Executive Director of the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability, to host a Fair Tax Town Hall.

“During my time in Springfield I have demanded change for our families, and fought to put Illinois on firmer financial footing moving forward. I proudly supported the Fair Tax to fix our broken tax system that puts too much of a burden on middle-class families,” said Villa. “I will continue hosting Fair Tax Town Halls throughout our communities to help educate residents about the ballot initiative Illinoisans will ultimately have to support before the Fair Tax becomes law. I want to thank the area residents that stopped by my Fair Tax Town Hall to share their thoughts on this proposal, and discuss the impact that it will have on local families.”

Villa invited local residents to join her and Ralph Martire, Executive Director of the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability, for their Fair Tax Town Hall to discuss initiatives to move Illinois forward and learn about the impact the Fair Tax would have on area residents.

“There is much more work to be done to get Illinois back on the right track, but the Fair Tax will help to address Illinois’ dire financial situation by calling on millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share,” continued Villa. “I look forward to hosting more Fair Tax Town Halls throughout our area, and having continued discussions with local residents and community leaders on ways we can work together to keep moving Illinois in the right direction.”
