Bicentennial Videos

Comptroller Susana A. Mendoza produced a series of videos to commemorate the Bicentennial of Illinois. These videos take a deeper look into cities that played a role in shaping our rich history. 

“My job as Comptroller takes me all over Illinois, as I meet with businesses and non-profits who suffered through late payments from the state during the two-year budget impasse and are still being brought up to speed,” Comptroller Mendoza said. “Along the way, I am lucky to get the chance to learn about our state’s history, and I’m excited to share some of that history with state residents through videos we taped – at no cost to the state – to  celebrate Illinois’ Bicentennial.”
