As I noted in yesterday’s blog post, we submitted Kent into a national competition for the best cities that is being put on by an organization called “Strong Towns” and they liked us enough to put us into the Sweet Sixteen bracket.
That’s great news but the bad news is our next round of competition is against San Marcos Texas — and my assistant, Harrison (being from Texas) said it’s a tough city to beat, they’ve got a lot going for it.
If you have a minute follow this link, read our submission, read San Marcos submission and then cast your vote — hopefully for the City that Kent City Schools calls home.
If you’re inspired, please feel free to let your employees know too. I believe voting will be closed in the next couple of days.
