The Paul Simon Public Policy Institute welcomes Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza for a virtual conversation at 10:00 a.m. CT Friday, June 4.
Mendoza and Institute Director John Shaw will discuss the work of the comptroller’s office and how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected Illinois’ fiscal situation.
When Mendoza was first elected comptroller in 2016, she became the first Hispanic to independently win statewide office in Illinois. She was re-elected in 2018. Prior to serving as comptroller, Mendoza in 2011 became the first woman elected to the office of Chicago City Clerk. Before that, she served in the Illinois House of Representatives for 10 years.
This event is part of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute’s Understanding Our New World virtual conversation series with government and private sector leaders, policy experts, political analysts, and historians.
