Who Is the Half Moon Bay Person of the Year?

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

On Dec. 19, Time magazine named President Barack Obama as their Person of the Year.

“For finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union, Barack Obama is TIME's 2012 Person of the Year,” Time managing editor Richard Stengel explained in his note to readers.

The magazine invited votes on 40 candidates, including Obama, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Other options included The Mars Rover and the Higgs Boson Particle.

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

Even folks like me who did not see eye to eye with Paul Perkovic on coastal issues have a great deal of admiration for him. I think it would be a nice honor.
