OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett has been awarded second place in the 2010 World Mayor Project.

The project is an international think tank on urban affairs, which recognizes the achievements of outstanding mayors from all over the world. Cornett was one of only two mayors in the United States to make the top 10.

One member of the World Mayor Project said Mayor Mick had turned a city in decline into an American showcase of urban renewal.

For his initiative 'This City is Going on a Diet,' he received a number of accolades and awards, culminating in his invitation to the 2010 State of the Union.

The 2010 World Mayor Prize was awarded to Marcelo Ebrard, Mayor of Mexico City since 2006. Domenico Lucano, Mayor of Riace, in southern Italy, was awarded third place.

The World Mayor Project was started in 2004 by The City Mayors Foundation. The World Mayor website includes details on all 25 finalists.
