Rep. David Harris (R-Arlington Heights)
Rep. David Harris (R-Arlington Heights) pointed out one last positive about the Prairie State.
Wrapping up his 2018 winter and spring series of something good to say about the state, Harris went out with a bang on May 31.
“As reported in Crain’s this week by the U.S. Census Bureau that the city of Chicago is attracting more well-off residents than any other city in the nation except for New York,” Harris said happily.
The definition of well-off, according to Harris, is an individual who makes a total income of more than $100,000 as the head of household and is younger than 45.
“Additionally, there are more people in the city of Chicago with college degrees than any other city in the United States,” Harris said, wrapping up months of good Prairie State reports.
He said though work needs to be done statewide, "clearly Chicago is the engine that is pulling this train and we are doing a good job.”
