As a real estate appraiser and Realtor, Laura Curtis helps families achieve the American dream of owning their own home. With Illinois’ second-highest property taxes in the nation, she witnesses firsthand the difficulty facing families to keep that dream within reach.
Laura understands Illinois needs leaders who will bring a fact-based approach to lower property taxes and reform the way Springfield conducts its business.
As a North Aurora Trustee, Laura has a record of fighting property tax hikes without compromising government services. She implemented fiscally conservative policies resulting in an upgrade of the Village’s bond rating to AA+ – one notch below the highest grade. Standard and Poor’s applauded the Village for its “strong budgetary performance.” In contrast, the state of Illinois’ S&P bond rating is BBB-, one level above junk status.
