AURORA – Tuesday evening, Tonia Khouri, candidate for Illinois' 11th congressional district held the first in a series of listening sessions she plans for this summer that will give district residents the opportunity to voice their concerns about local and federal issues.

"I want to empower the people in our district. Listening to their concerns firsthand and hearing their stories is just the first step," said Khouri. "This tour gives me the chance to get to hear from residents throughout the district. I was happy to see such an excellent turnout last night and I look forward to more forums in the near future."

Khouri heard from well over thirty attendees who shared their concerns about our stagnant economy, bleak jobs outlook, and alarming rate of growth in federal spending. 

"I was glad to hear Tonia's support for our military and our national security during these tumultuous times," said Geriann Wiesbrook, event attendee and founder of the Military Momma Network. "Her vision for our nation is one I could see myself supporting."

"I came all the way from Naperville to meet Tonia. I was very impressed and I am now a supporter," said Tony Marchese, a district resident. "We need more leaders like her representing us in Washington."

Khouri is a member of the DuPage County Board and is challenging Democrat incumbent Bill Foster in the 11th CD in the November 2016 election.

Upcoming tour events will be posted on the Khouri for Congress website and Facebook page as they are scheduled. Events are open to the public and free to attend.

  1. Tonya can WIN this, if she can figure out a way to defeat the Democrat vote fraud problem in the precincts of Joliet.
    Those precincts often record 85-90 percent voter turn-out, always with Democrat-win results.
    This is statistically impossible, as this never occurs in any other precincts, even in “Crook” County.
