Susana A. Mendoza
Susana A. Mendoza was elected Illinois State Comptroller in 2016. Prior to that she served as Chicago City Clerk and a six-term Illinois State Representative.
As the first woman ever elected to the Office of the City Clerk, she successfully transitioned 1.3 million customers away from an inefficient and archaic seasonal Chicago City Vehicle Sticker sales program dating back 105 years, plagued by tremendously long lines and guaranteed headaches, to a streamlined Year-Round-Sales program, modeled after the Illinois Secretary of State’s license plate renewal program. This historic change resulted in better customer service at lower taxpayer cost.
