The Chicago Urban League Remembers Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka

CHICAGO, IL-(December 10, 2014) “We were saddened to learn of the passing of Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka. This trailblazing public servant was truly a woman for all seasons. As a legislator, State Treasurer and as Comptroller, Topinka was an elected official who genuinely cared about the constituents she served.

“Topinka was and will remain an inspiration to all women who aspire to lead and will be remembered for her humor, wit, and her support of equality and fairness for all communities.

“In an era where polarizing partisanship often rules the day, Judy Baar Topinka’s indomitable spirit and down to earth approach empowered to cross party lines and have a significant impact of the lives of the people of Illinois.  She will truly be missed.

“All of us at the Chicago Urban League send our condolences to the family, friends and staff of Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka.”
