Program Description: 

The city comptroller and treasurer of Dixon, Illinois, stole $53 million of public funds across 20 years–making her the perpetrator of the largest case of municipal fraud in American history. She used the funds to build one of the nation’s leading quarter horse-breeding empires, all while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing, and neglect of public infrastructure. Her story, and the story of the City has been turned into an award-winning documentary by Kelly Richmond Pope. GFOA will be screening the movie for a limited audience and following will hold a discussion with the director.
