‘Worst Run City’ in the U.S. Just Got Named – And It’s In 1 Giant Blue State

Blue cities across the country are in a mess, and right-wingers think they know why. Picture this: high taxes, lots of crime, and streets full of drug addicts. Instead of fixing these problems, Democrats seem more interested in pushing costly, woke programs.

This means that important things like police, schools, and trash pickup often get left behind. Residents are stuck dealing with broken systems that can’t keep up with basic needs.

In most of these cities, far-left prosecutors have neglected crime, and rampant criminal activity is driving residents to other states. An online company, WalletHub, decided to rank major U.S. cities. They looked at how each of these places is run. And they just announced which city is the worst.

From Fox News:
San Francisco, California, was declared to be the “worst run” city in the U.S. according to a report by WalletHub.

The annual study measured the “effectiveness of local leadership” by comparing the quality of city services matched against the city’s total budget to determine its operating efficiency.

Despite ranking 24th in quality of services, San Francisco placed dead last at 148 in its total budget per-capita rank, along with having the highest amount of long-term debt outstanding.

WalletHub looked at 148 of America’s largest cities to rank how well they are run. They looked at how many services are provided against the city’s total budget. And, not for the first time, San Francisco was ranked as the worst run city in America.

The city leaders did not appreciate, or agree, with this ranking. Yet it’s hard to ignore the harsh realities San Francisco faces; for instance, homelessness has gotten so bad that most residents avoid the downtown areas. There is an online map that charts how much feces is flooding the streets.

Progressive policies are dumping money into woke programs. Meanwhile, Democrats are doing nothing to address real problems, and the sad reality is San Francisco isn’t the only California city going down the tubes. Los Angeles, Oakland, and other “Golden State” cities are considered the worst in the country.

All because the far-left refuses to admit that its policies do not work. Worst still, these Democrats will only double down on these bad decisions … unless, of course, they are voted out of office. But thanks to the millions of illegals Biden is importing into these cities, they don’t have to worry about that.

Key Takeaways:

  • WalletHub ranked San Francisco as the “worst run city” in America.
  • The website looked at 148 major cities, weighing their services and budgets.
  • San Francisco was also ranked worst in 2023 and second worst in 2022.
