It would seem that somebody doesn't like Western Colorado, because a new list of worst cities in Colorado features no less than four western slope towns, including Grand Junction.

Grand Junction, Delta, Montrose, and Cortez all made it into the top 10 Colorado towns on this dubious list.

The ranking of worst cities is based upon factors like unemployment, the economy, and crime rate. Stay tuned, though,because next week Grand Junction will probably be back on the list of best towns in Colorado.

I have to say I don't know a lot about Cortez, but I know plenty about Grand Junction, Delta, and Montrose, and I think all three are decent places to live. Sure, every town has its particular problems and issues, but these are three towns I definitely would not put on the list of top 10 worst cities in Colorado.
