Senator Syverson statement on the passing of Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka

“I served with or worked with Judy for 21 years. You didn’t have to spend more than five minutes with her to know what she was like. She worked hard, she played hard, she was fun and just a little bit crazy. While she never took herself too seriously, she took the job of safeguarding taxpayer dollars very seriously. For many years, she was the leader in putting sunshine on the abuse of tax dollars,” said Senator Syverson. “Judy was a true champion of the people, and fought hard to increase government transparency and accountability. I would ask that we all keep her family in thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”
