Opinions on how well the city of Dallas is run by its government may vary depending on your political leanings, butaccording to a new study done by WalletHub, Dallas ranks as one of the best-run cities in the entire United States.
On a list that included 65 of the most populated U.S. cities, Dallas comes in at No. 4. In fact, Texas appears to be one of the best-run states in the country, as it claims 10 of the top 24, including Lubbock (No. 1), Garland (No. 8), Houston (No. 9), Austin (tied for No. 15), Fort Worth (No. 20) and Arlington (No. 24).
As WalletHub readily acknowledges, the rankings can be taken with a grain of salt. For one, the rankings were determined solely by the return on investment (ROI) cities received in three key categories: education, police, and parks and recreation.
Dallas ranked in the mid-20s in the first two categories, but a No. 7 ranking in parks and recreation greatly boosted its overall status. Houston ranked No. 1 in parks and recreation, but a low ROI in police dropped it down overall.
In a perfect world, WalletHub also would have included how well cities spent money on public transportation and health, but its researchers were not able to find sufficient comparative data to do so.

Do you ever wonder if you need to pay your real estate agen
"I have been meaning to send this note to you for a while now. My husband and I have been working with Jody Keenan for about five years now. She is a part of our real estate scene - we have a few properties in the DFW area.
We have never worked with anyone like Jody before. Her sincerity, commitment, dedication, hard work, pro-activeness, ownership - are all absolutely outstanding and amazing. And I could go on and on.
Frankly, we have invested more in real estate partly because of who we have in her as a partner. No other agent we have dealt with in the past has come even close to who she is and what she offers as service.
I wanted someone in her organization to know about her and so I am writing this to you.
Hope she remains in good health and continues her outstanding services for several more years to come. Lucky are those who become her clients - as we are.
