Which city is richest? It depends on how the numbers are run

Original post made on May 21, 2013

San Ramon topped a recent list of the wealthiest cities in America, but Danville didn't make the cut -- not because it's less wealthy, but because it's too small to count.

Why do we need this type of publicity -- easier targets?

@Alamo Resident - our city is not mentioned here, why do you care? People of Danville, SR and Pleasanton are okay with this article since they are much nicer, inclusive and smart (i.e. they know affluent cities is public knowledge and no one heard it for the first time from the nerdwallet listing)

Thanks for listening.

Sorry to burst your bubble but Alamo is not a city, nor a town. It is an unincorporated "area" aka; CDP (census designated place).

For such "smart" and affluent people, how did you possibly think Alamo qualified? You did however demonstrate a wonderful sense of humor.

Thanks for listening.

I hope my comment did not get interpreted the wrong way -- I am very happy not to get publicity, and yes, Policy of Truth, I am well aware of our unincorporated status.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
