Illinois Office of Comptroller Susana Mendoza

assisted living services Illinois Office of Comptroller Susana Mendoza

The Comptroller's Office was created by the Constitutional Convention of 1970 as an expanded replacement for the Office of the Auditor of Public Accounts. The Office of the Comptroller traces its ancestry to 1799 when an auditor of public accounts was established under the jurisdiction of the Northwest Territory. Elijah Conway Berry served as Auditor of Public Accounts when Illinois was a territory of the United States and continued his duties as Auditor when Illinois became a state in 1818. Berry's successor, James Stapp, took office when he was only 27 years of age.

Several colorful personalities held the office during the 19th century. James Shields, who served from 1841 to 1843, challenged Abraham Lincoln to a duel over unflattering newspaper editorials he attributed to Lincoln. The conflict between the two state officials was resolved before any bloodshed occurred, but the incident serves as an interesting footnote in the history of the office. The office existed under the name Auditor of Public Accounts until the state's first elected Comptroller took the oath of office in early 1973.

In 1970, Illinois' latest constitution established the Comptroller as an elected officer in the Executive Branch of state government. Illinois citizens select the state's Comptroller in statewide elections. By law, the Comptroller is the state's Chief Fiscal Control Officer, responsible for the legal, efficient, and effective operations of state government.

Illinois' first Comptroller, George W. Lindberg, was inaugurated in January 1973. By July 1974, he had initiated the Office's first automated accounting system. Comptroller Lindberg vitalized the office by providing understandable explanations of complex fiscal issues. Following Lindberg, nine individuals have served as Comptroller: Michael J. Bakalis served from 1977 to 1979, Roland W. Burris from 1979 to 1991, Dawn Clark Netsch from 1991 to 1995, Loleta A. Didrickson from 1995 to 1999, Dan Hynes from 1999 to 2011, Judy Baar Topinka from 2011 to 2014, and Leslie Munger from 2015 to 2016. Susana A. Mendoza was elected to the office in 2016.

Township of Schaumburg

assisted living services Township of Schaumburg

Township government used to concern itself with taking care of the roads as one of its main priorities. While that function still exists in the unincorporated areas, the Township's main emphasis is on providing human care services in the areas of mental health, disability services, senior services, youth services and welfare services. The Township also provides a myriad of other services including, but not limited to, voter registration, passport services, notary public services, property and tax assessment information, as well as general information and referral services.

From the 1850's through the 2000's the services offered by the Township would not be possible if it were not for the dedicated employees and volunteers in our Township family. Whether a rural community of 40 years ago or the highly diversified urban community of today, Schaumburg Township's motto of "A History of Service...A Commitment to the Future" certainly applies to the officials, employees and volunteers.

The mission of Senior Services is to provide quality services and programs to Township residents aged 55 and older while maintaining independence and dignity. Senior Services assists residents with a variety of social services and acts as a referral and information resource center for many programs. A wide variety of daily virtual programs and in-person life-enrichment programs are offered at little to no cost.

Schaumburg Township’s Disability Services provides assistance with social services, information and referrals, and programming for residents with disabilities. Schaumburg Township also serves as an Illinois Telecommunication Access Corporation (ITAC) selection center. The ITAC program provides a free amplified phone to any Illinois resident who is hard of hearing. Residents can call and schedule an appointment to come and test the phones available to find the one that is right for them.
