Harris highlights Chicago's top ranking in foreign direct investment strategy
This week it was investment strategy.
Never a man more true to his word, Rep. David Harris (R-Arlington Heights) used his point of personal privilege during the May 10 House floor debate to point out one more positive thing about the Prairie State among the pending doom and gloom.
So far, horseradish and business growth have been some of the good things to share, as well as safety awards as seen in February.
However, this week, Harris said that although “nobody is moving in and everyone is moving out and pretty soon the whole place is going to be nothing but a vast wasteland,” the city of Chicago at the end of last year was named the top major city for foreign direct investment strategy by fDi Magazine's American Cities of the Future 2017-18.
"This follows a recommendation from IBM Global Location Trends Report, which ranked Chicago No. 1 for foreign direct investment for four consecutive years," Harris said to wrap up his couple of minutes of positivity.
What does next week hold?
