Who's Culver City'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 town!

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 Culver City’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 Culver City’s Person of the Year by Monday, Dec. 31, in the comment section below.

I nominate Mayor Andrew Weissman as Culver City Person of the Year. He has done a masterful job in guiding the City through the loss of redevelopment while being aggressive about economic development and working in collaboration with the Chamber and our business community. He has been at the forefront of the fracking debate, the proposed ban on plastic bags and directed the successful Measure Y campaign to close our structural deficit. He works hard to establish a collegial environment on the Council and is respectful to the public and their concerns. As a result of his efforts, Culver City continues to be a well-run city and high-quality place to live and work. -- Jim B. Clarke
