The following year Ken planned to nominate Angel Fire. Unfortunately, Rand McNally decided to skip the contest in 2014. When he followed up in 2015, still planning to nominate Angel Fire, the representative from Rand McNally told him that they had decided to discontinue the contest. Ken responded, “the way I see it, you guys found the most patriotic small town in American, why search further?” They told him, “sounds good. Run with that,” so Ken called the Mayor to let him know that Rand McNally saw no need to continue their search. Gallup would retain the Most Patriotic Small Town in America title in perpetuity.
