SALEM – State Representative John Cavaletto mourns the passing of Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka.

“Judy Baar Topinka was a trail-blazer and dedicated public servant,” said Rep. John Cavaletto. “Our last meeting was after Topinka toured the Murray Developmental Center where she saw first-hand the importance of keeping the Center open for the residents and their families. Our thoughts and prayers are with Judy Baar Topinka’s family and friends. She will be greatly missed.”
