The Klas Restaurant building is at risk of being demolished. If Judy Baar Topinka was alive, she would be fighting to save it.
Judy announced her candidacy for Illinois Governor because of her love for her Czech and Slavic heritage. For her, the building represented her heritage as well as her community which included the Cicero area. Please watch the video about the Klas Restaurant building and the effort to save it. Also, enjoy the photos of Judy in Cicero, including near or in the Klas Building itself.
