Appleton Honored by Forbes: Among Top 30 Small Metro Areas for Business and Careers

Forbes magazine has rated Appleton as #27 in its list of the best small metropolitan areas for business and careers. This is a big honor given the huge selection of competitors. Green Bay was ranked #106, Milwaukee #124, and Madison #31. The listings are based on considerations of economic conditions, quality of life, education, income growth, job growth, cost of doing business, etc.

Among the large metro areas was #4, Boise, Idaho - a town where I spend some wonderful boyhood years. But Appleton is hard to beat, and I'm so pleased to be raising my family here.
Congratulations to Appleton! And kudos to Forbes for acknowledging what we who have lived there already knew!
