Calgary's Mayor Nenshi World's Top Mayor

CALGARY — Naheed Nenshi of Calgary has received an unexpected birthday gift after being named the No. 1 mayor in the world by an international urban research institute.
Nenshi, who was nominated by Calgarians and other Canadians, has been awarded the 2014 World Mayor Prize.
The urban research group says he has become the “most admired mayor” of any large Canadian city.
It describes him as an urban visionary who doesn’t neglect the nitty-gritty of local government.
It says Nenshi is a role model to many in North America and Europe for decisive management, inclusivity and forward thinking.
The mayor of Ghent, Belgium, was the runner-up.
The only other North American mayor to make the Top 10 in the honours given out every two years is from Houston.
