Meyer makes it official, announces run for Lee County treasurer

Dixon Finance Director Paula Meyer officially announced her candidacy for Lee County Treasurer today, at Heritage Crossing in Dixon. The 53-year-old Republican is running to fill the seat being vacated by Treasurer John Fritts, who announced in September that he won't seek re-election after 22 years in the position. Meyer, who was was hired by the city 5 years ago to clean up the financial mess left after former City Comptroller Rita Crundwell stole $53.7 million from the city, has been an accountant for 27 years and also has worked as Sauk Valley Community College's controller. Among her priorities if elected: increased transparency in the office, dealing with challenges from state cuts and dwindling revenue from the landfill, and cutting costs by streamlining operations with software and other technology.
