Who's Springfield's Person of the Year?

TIME magazine named President Obama their person of the year for the second time. Tell us who you think should win from our town!

On Dec. 19, Time magazine named President Obama their Person of the Year, again!

The magazine invited votes on 40 candidates, including the president, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Other options included The Mars Rover and the Higgs Boson Particle, Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, and Apple CEO Tim Cook. But, the president took the title again four years after he first won the award as president-elect in 2008.

But who cares about the same-old, same-old? Who is Springfield's Person of the Year—the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse”?

Tell us your pick in the comment section below!

I have two votes 1) Apu, Captain of the First Aid Squadfor his tireless efforts in working to high quality emergency medical services to the town all year long 2) Scott Seidel, OEM Coordinator for his leadership during Sandy.

I agree, those two people are both worthy of consideration.

I nominate Mayor Ziad Shehady for his tireless work during the hurricane and its aftermath, especially his dealings with JCP&L and his constant communication with residents via Twitter and Facebook to keep us informed.
