Vote Meyer for Lee treasurer


There has been a lot said about the qualifications of the candidates for Lee County treasurer. However, there is really only one candidate who has the education and experience to do the job and do it right. 

Paula Meyer spent 17 years at Sauk Valley Community College streamlining financial policies and procedures that helped to raise the college’s fund balance from $650,000 to nearly $6 million.

Then she was recruited by the city of Dixon to become their chief financial officer to fix the mess that Rita Crundwell left behind. 

Now, after 5 years with the city, she wants to bring 22 years of government accounting experience to Lee County. As a member of the Finance Committee with the Lee County Board, I am really looking forward to having a truly professional financial manager as our next Lee County treasurer. 

Vote for Paula Meyer for Lee County treasurer.
