The answer is…the Republican Party.
According to the Cook Political Report, Cook County, Illinois, is the most efficient, efficient, and the most diverse county in the nation.
“The Cook County Board of Commissioners, in collaboration with the Cook County Government, is committed to the success of the Cook county community and we will continue to invest in and enhance the County’s diverse workforce, which is the backbone of our County economy,” Cook County Commissioner Kenyatta Johnson said in a statement.
“We have the resources to grow and diversify our workforce and we can do so with the help of technology, innovation and the community’s passion for food and cooking.”
Cook County has the second-highest number of inmates in the country behind only Cook County in Illinois, according to the FBI.
But, the Cook’s political clout and the fact that they are part of a Republican-controlled county has been praised by Democrats.
“Cook County is a diverse, economically, socially and racially diverse county, with a diverse workforce and high levels of public and private investment,” said Cook County Democratic Chairman David Chalian in a prepared statement.
“As a community, we need to continue to work together to address the challenges facing our county.”
Democratic officials are hoping that the Cook political machine can help get Cook County’s inmates back to work, and that it will be a boon to the county’s economy.
“As a county, we know the Cooks political machine is in place to provide resources and resources to the public sector in the Cook area,” said Chalian.
“That’s what we’re working to get our people back to do.”
Cook, which encompasses parts of Chicago, Lake County and DuPage County, has a population of 6,521,000, according the Cook Report.
