47th District: Long represented by former Rep. Patti Bellock, R-Hinsdale, and now by the recently appointed Rep. Deanne Mazzochi, R-Elmhurst, voters have an interesting matchup on the ballot. Mazzochi has a sturdy reputation as a fiscal conservative who helped clean up the mess at College of DuPage. She’ll give up her post as board president there if elected to a full legislative term. Mazzochi is firmly opposed to higher taxes … We’re recommending Mazzochi because she is proven, experienced and tough.
