Despite Sacramento Ranking Poorly for Management, Its Mayor Steinberg Gets Involved in Dixon Politics

According to “Wallet Hub”, a public research service, a lot can be learned about how well city officials manage and spend public funds by comparing the quality of services residents receive against the city’s total budget.

Using that approach, WalletHub compared the operating efficiency of 150 of the largest U.S. cities to reveal which among them are managed best.
“We constructed a ‘Quality of Services’ score made up of 35 metrics grouped into six service categories, which we then measured against the city’s per-capita budget,” the service explained.
According to that report, Sacramento ranked a poor Number 82 over-all; and even worse for Financial Stability – for which it ranked Number 108; Education – rating just 108; and Safety another poor ranking of just Number 85. Sacramento didbetter for the economy – but with a still mediocre ranking of Number 55. It also ranked Number 131 for the Budget per Capita.
