Windhorst says opponent's tax agenda hurts southern Illinois
When it comes to taxes, Republican state House candidate Patrick Windhorst doesn’t understand the rationale of Rep. Natalie Phelps Finnie (D-Elizabethtown).
“Over 30,000 people fled the state of Illinois last year because the financial burden of living here is too great,” Windhorst posted on Facebook. “Rep. Phelps Finnie just voted to make the tax burden even greater on our working families. Raising taxes, again, on the middle class and those just trying to get by in southern Illinois is fundamentally wrong.”
Slated to battle Phelps Finnie for the 118th House District seat in November’s general election, Windhorst is hoping that voters see things the same way he does.
"When Rep. Phelps Finnie takes our voice to Springfield and uses it to echo Mike Madigan’s tax-raising agenda, southern Illinois loses,” he added.
The 118th House District includes parts or all of Alexander, Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jackson, Johnson, Massac, Pope, Pulaski, Saline and Union counties.
