With just one week left, Quad Cities leaders are urging residents to vote for Davenport as the "Best American Riverfront." Today, Mayor Bill Gluba held a news conference to talk about how the USA Today contest could help the city. Gluba says Davenport is one of 20 cities competing for the Best Riverfront. He thinks winning will increase tourism, money, and jobs in the Quad Cities.
Other cities competing for the "Best American Riverfront" include Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, and Wilmington, North Carolina, which is currently in the lead.
