N06, Topinka campaigning at Triton [D504]

On Saturday, Republican gubernatorial nominee Judy Baar Topinka spoke at the Triton College graduation. She was introduced by Mark Stephens, president of the board of trustees.

Stephens introduced Topinka as the next governor of Illinois. Stephens father, Don Stephens is the Republican Committeeman of Leyden Township. He's also the longtime mayor of Rosemont. Stephens is clearly a skilled public official with considerable clout. He strenuously objected to the FBI linking him with organized crime.

Topinka openly joked about the length of her graduation speech at the beginning by saying that the doors were locked and nobody would be leaving until she finished.

Topinka's speech had nine points. During subpoint eight the audience tried to applaud her off the stage.
