From the Tribune:

93rd District: “This race comes down to taxes and trust. …. Curtis understands the need to keep businesses and homeowners from fleeing Illinois. As a business owner, he would push for less government regulation and fewer mandates. Curtis is endorsed.”

In the 2016 election, the Tribune endorsed Norine Hammond for State Representative instead of John Curtis, now, even the Tribune realizes it is time for a change in our district and has endorsed John Curtis as a new voice for rural Illinois.
