    Remember this? Well, turns out Fremont the city knows what it's doing.

    Low crime, good schools, credit so good there's no need to sell bonds, a great place to live.

    That's Fremont for you.

    These bona fides helped the East Bay city land on 24/7 Wall Street's list of the best-run American cities, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

    The city has the 11th-lowest violent crime rate in the country, and at 6.6 percent, its poverty rate is among the very lowest, the news source reported.

    There's also a high rate of adults who have graduated from high school -- all good news for the city's 214,613 residents.
