    Let's look at the best cities for business according to Forbes:

    (Note some cities require that local govt. candidates not have a party affiliation on the ticket, hence they are listed below by their formal and registered status).

    Since Forbes is a GOP magazine, this is surprising.

    Raleigh - McFarlane - Independent/Dem
    Des Moines - Cownie - Independent/Dem
    Provo - Curtis Independent/ Dem
    Lexington, KY Gray Dem
    Fort Collins, CO Weitkunat - Independent/none
    Nashville - Dean- Dem
    Austin, TX Leffingwell Dem
    San Antonio TX - Castro - Dem
    Denver Hancock Independent/Dem
    Dallas Rawlings Dem

    Th Forbes list referred to metropolitan "areas" not cites. I can testify to the rot in Dallas with the typical black Democratic mayor. They so screwed up Red Bir Airport that guys were renting hangers in which to work on cars.

    Denver, Provo, Des Moines, Fort Collins, and Raleigh DO NOT have Democratic mayors. They are very much REGISTERED independents.

    No sweetie, you are wrong. Certainly each city has a problem, can you tell me one that does not.

    Again, you are wrong, I called, just called, Mayor Hancock's office in Denver - he is a registered Dem but in Denver you have to run as an independent.

    I just called Ft. Collins, again, the mayor's office confirmed she is independent, but also stated that she can be registered as any party.

    I assume the same is true for any city. Maybe not, maybe yes.

    Tell me conservative, are all conservatives so racist?

    Denver's black mayor won in a city with a small number of blacks and is overwhelming popular still.

    Lol. And YOU are full of it. Call 970.416.2154 and ask for Sara. You will find that the mayor does not have allegiance to any party, let alone Democrats.

    Surprised you did not delete your racist rant. Good for you, standing up for your belief - racism. Fail to mention that Denver's mayor is black, a democrat and a great place for liberals and business.
