SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Dave Koehler (D-Peoria) issued the following statement about the passing of Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka:
"Illinois has lost a giant. Judy Baar Topinka was unique among elected officials. She had an independent spirit that was refreshing. People on both sides of the aisle had great respect for her. In a time when bipartisanship is so sorely needed, she will indeed be missed."
