Here It Is! The Big Topinka Fund-Raiser! But Wait-a Big Name is Missing!
Invitations for a big fund-raiser for Judy Baar Topinka have just hit the mail. Itll be May 23 at Fultons on the River: 11:30 to 1:30 p.m. luncheon. The big speaker will be Christie Todd Whitman, former governor of New Jersey and head of the EPA.
It costs $5,000 to co-host. Co-hosts include: Mary Jo Arndt; Bob and Trish Barr; Terry Barnich; Gavin Campbell (Steel Bridge Capitol, Inc.); Beth Doria (Alliance Associates); Christine Dudley; Mary Gade (Sonnenschein law firm); Lynn Martin; Judy and Ray McCaskey; Jim Montana (whose wife is the paid Topinka fund-raiser); Clark Pellett; Alice Phillips; Jayne Thompson; Douglas Whitley, president of the Illinois State Chamber and The Log Cabin Republicans of Chicago.
But wait! Wheres Jim Edgar? Isnt he the guy who told us only Judy could win? Why hasnt he plunked down $5000? Tight as a tick he is but youd imagine hed back his convictions up with money, wouldnt you?
