‘We’re No.1!’

Texas is not bragging when it says it's No.1. It's the truth.

by RON STARNER

Finishing first is getting to be an old habit in Texas. By winning Site Selection magazine’s prestigious Governor’s Cup award five years in a row — for registering more corporate facility investment projects than any other state in the nation — Texas has set  itself apart.

But it’s also no aberration from the norm. Even on a metropolitan level, Texas cities boast rankings that are equally impressive. 

Four Texas cities rank among the top 20 Best Cities for Job Seekers, according to Wallet Hub: No. 1 Austin, No. 9 Irving, No. 19 Dallas and No. 20 Fort Worth. And five of the 10 fastest growing cities in America are in Texas: No. 1 Frisco, No. 2 League City, No. 7 Midland, No. 8 McKinney and No. 10 Bryan. 

As one-time Dallas Cowboy and NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders once famously said, “It’s not bragging if you can do it.”

Consider the list of Texas superlatives, which keep mounting by the year:
