Chattanooga was one of seven cities worldwide in the running for the title given by the Intelligent Community Forum. Chattanooga’s hyper-fast Internet connectivity was a key factor in the city’s effort, according to officials.

Salsa beat me to the punch. It's obvious, & he's said it publicly, Ron Littlefield doesn't want Chattanooga's interests to be first. He wants his legacy to be the consolidation of government. He's not a leader & his legacy will really be what it looks like to be a little individual with power, surrounded by more little people with power.
