We did it, Lexington! We did it!
According to WalletHub, lovely Lexington, Ky., the Horse Capital of the World, is one of the best-run cities in the United States. Lexington ranked fifth among the 150 largest cities across America, trailing only (1) Nampa, Idaho; (2) Provo, Utah; (3) Boise, Idaho; and (4) Durham, North Carolina on the best-run list. (Good for you, Nampa.)
Mayor Linda Gorton had this to say on Twitter about the city’s ranking: “In Lexington, our city government is efficient and productive thanks to the hard work of our employees. I’m proud to be the Mayor of such a remarkable, well-run city!”
Lexington performed best in the “Total Budget Per Capita” category, where it ranked fourth. To a see a complete breakdown of WalletHub’s findings, check out the rankings page here.
As a partner is one Lexington’s most famous institutions, KSBar and Grille, located at 1030 South Broadway with daily specials and a great family-friendly atmosphere, I would like to say thank you to WalletHub for its spreadsheets; to this community for being awesome except for on Nicholasville Road when it is raining; and to Mayor Gorton for her leadership.
Next year let’s get first.
