David Merriman Interviewed By Tribune On Movement To Separate The State Of Illinois From Cook County

IL and Cook County Split

The Chicago Tribune interviewed David Merriman, James J. Stukel Presidential Professor in the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs, in an article profiling the organizers of the movement to separate the state of Illinois from Cook County. Merriman says the split would be just as complicated as Brexit and if it were to occur it’s reasonable to contend that other counties would resemble Indiana’s population and economy, but much of the collar counties’ economy is linked with the Cook County economy.  http://bit.ly/2yssn1l (subscription may be required)
