In a recent report published by USA Today, two California cities, Pleasanton and Mountain View, were placed at numbers 4 and 3 respectively on the list of best American cities in which to live. The placement of Pleasanton as the fourth best city in which to live is especially noteworthy as Teri Black and Company and Pleasanton are currently working together to fill some important positions – two Assistant City Managers and a Fire Chief for the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department.
The USA Today article was based on 24/7 Wall St.’s special report, in which it selected the 50 most livable American cities (http://247wallst.com/special-report/2014/09/17/americas-50-best-cities-to-live/). Factors such as employment growth, unemployment rates, quality of education, housing prices, and crime rates were taken into consideration when reviewing data on cities with populations of 65,000 or more. The full article on America’s best cities to live in can be seen at http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/09/17/24-7-wall-st-50-best-cities-to-live/15736533/.
Just days later, Pleasanton earned another distinction with CNN MONEY ranking Pleasanton the 31st best places to live in American out of 781 cities based on 50 different criteria which included great jobs, a strong economy, excellent schools, healthcare, and much more.
