John Robert Smith, President and CEO of Reconnecting America, hails from Meridian Mississippi.  As the former Mayor, he saw how even a small city of 40,000 can be the center of a much larger region, providing services for over 350,000 people.  It might give us a little bit of a different perspective when it comes to smaller cities and urban areas.
