Who's Manhattan Beach's Person of the Year?

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

On Dec. 19, Time magazine named President Obama its 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 Manhattan Beach’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 and why he or she should be Hermosa Beach’s Person of the Year by midnight Tuesday, Jan. 1, in the comment section below.

The Mayor for saving our sand.

Bob White, the long-time leader of the Hyperion Outfall Serenaders. He's brought lots of joy, love, and good times to Manhattan Beach. He is a vibrant symbol of life for our little beach town.

Jan Dennis wins, hands down -- no one is more deserving of the honor. Jan's leadership, passion and downright heroism in our Centennial year come as no surprise to those familiar with her many decades of meaningful contributions to our community.

Heroism is a very good word for her contribution.
