As Oklahoma City's first four-term mayor, Mick Cornett has used a bold, creative, and personal approach to orchestrate his city's renaissance - a crucial (and untold) story of urban reinvention. Once regarded as a 'flyover city,' Oklahoma City has become one of our nation's most dynamic places - and it is not alone. Indianapolis, Charleston, Seattle, Austin, New Orleans, Des Moines, Sacramento, Louisville, Buffalo: these cities are re-inventing themselves, and setting examples for communities of every kind-in ways that America's largest cities can t afford to do or can't figure out how to do.

As Mayor Cornett argues, 'in the fight to grow
