What cities have current mayors who have accomplished great things for their city, have turned around a corrupt or inept administration, have guided the city with steady, prudent, and courageous leadership? Out of these mayors, which one do you think has done the most?

Not to make this a homer thread, but reading this article about my city's mayor Frank Jackson shows just how important a mayor can be for a city's success. Mayor Jackson has been quite inspirational to me, and I really look up to him as one of the few introvert politicians, and one who has accomplished great things. Are there any mayors that you do now, or have in the past looked up to? Article Archives | Cleveland Magazine - Your guide to the best of Cleveland

Eric Garcetti in Los Angeles is looked upon pretty favorably throughout the city. He is relatively new on the job so he hasn't accomplished much, but his vision for Los Angeles' next few years look promising for folks all over the city. He has the potential to be the best US mayor but is obviously way too fresh to even be in the conversation right now.

Boston had a pretty great mayor in Thomas Menino. I'd probably vote for him.

Since Cory Booker is no longer mayor, I will have to go with Rob Ford.

How is SF's Ed Lee? He seems like an interesting guy.

Philadelphia's Mayor Michael Nutter is pretty awesome. Definitely among one of the better of Philadelphia's recent mayors.
