Las Cruces Is 2020’s 4th Best-Run City in America – WalletHub Study

With local governments’ leadership abilities being tested by COVID-19 as well as the recent protests, and the 2020 election approaching, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2020’s Best- & Worst-Run Cities in America, as well as accompanying videos.

To determine the effectiveness of local leadership, WalletHub compared 150 of the largest U.S. cities based on their operating efficiency. For each city, WalletHub constructed a “Quality of City Services” score – comprising 38 key performance indicators grouped into six service categories – that was then measured against the city’s total per-capita budget.
