  • The State of Illinois lost a great leader today and I’m terribly sad to have lost a friend and mentor. Judy was truly one of a kind. Quirky, fun-loving, brilliant and loyal - all words I'd use to describe this jewel of a woman. Earlier this month, we lit the Palmer House Hilton Christmas tree, one of Chicago’s oldest traditions. It turned out to be one of her last public experiences. Surrounded by children from local schools with guests snapping photos, it was hard to tell who was enjoying themselves more. After more than three decades in elected office, she could still give the kids a run for their money. Judy Baar Topinka was bold and fearless and she raised the standard for elected officials in Illinois. We are posting a couple pictures here and there are more to come. We're grateful to have so many wonderful memories of an amazing person.
