How DuPage County is merging and purging government units and what it means for Illinois.

Comment: Resurrecting Illinois demands that this be done on a huge scale all across the state. That’s extraordinarily hard, politically, because it means politicians’ friends lose jobs. Kudos to County Board Chairman Dan Cronin for charging ahead. If you want to see how complex this gets, see Senator Dan Biss’ piece here about dissolving townships.
