“Trust But Verify”
The Story About the Largest Municipal Embezzlement in U.S. History

Jim Burke is a life-long resident of Dixon, Illinois.  He was first elected mayor in 1999 and served 4 full terms in office prior to his retirement this past April.  In addition to being Mayor, Burke is the owner of United Country Burke Realty.  Burke was early in his fourth term when the city clerk brought a secret bank account to his attention. Burke alerted authorities, and several months later in April 2012, Rita Crundwell was led away from City Hall in handcuffs.  The previous mayor will explain how it happened, the investigation and how the City went on to re-coup over $50 million.

Ticket price: $25.00 per person (includes served lunch) or $20.00 per person for Chamber members (IVAC/OAC and Princeton Area).
