Ford County held its first Republican Lincoln Day Dinner in about 15 years last (Thur) night. And Party Chairman Tom Bennett is hoping the event will spark some interest and get more people interested in the political process.
The Lincoln Day Dinner in Gibson City featured State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka. She talked about how she’d like to see more women and more diversity in the party.
Topinka said the state’s budget problems will be difficult to fix. She told about 200 attendees “this didn’t happen overnight, and it’s not gonna be solved overnight.”
Topinka said the message is “it’s essential to elect candidates who can solve the financial problems.”
