If you've ever traveled to another city, you likely noticed some differences, big or small, from where you live. Maybe the roads are a little smoother, or the traffic is more congested. Perhaps the crime rate is higher than you're used to or you feel safer walking down the street alone. A variety of factors influences the way cities are run, and some run better than others.

Engineer Your Finances compiled a list of 21 "worst run cities" in America, basing its list on findings from WalletHub, that includes factors like high crime rates, financial stability, budget management, education and more. Among the list that includes cities like Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit and New Orleans is one right here in Wisconsin: Milwaukee.

"It's not the weather that put Milwaukee on this list; it's ongoing budget issues. Current numbers have the city running a deficit of $25-$35 million going into next year. The problem is that Milwaukee is one of the poorest cities in the country, with a debt in the billions. [...] With a lack of new business coming to the city, there's no easy answer to the cities' problems."
