MT. VERNON — — State Comptroller Judy Baar-Topinka was in Mt. Vernon Tuesday afternoon to announce her re-election bid.

Topinka is traveling the state, part of her "Common Sense Express" Tour.

"It's time to lose corruption and over spending in Springfield," Topinka said. "Legislators, why don't you get it? You can't spend what you don't have. ... It's time for the Legislature to realize it's not our money, it's your money."
