POLL: Vote for the Morristown Area Person of the Year
TIME magazine named President Obama their person of the year for the second time—now it's your turn to choose who should take the honor for Morristown, Morris Township and Morris Plains.
Your nominations are in and the poll is up. Now, we want to know: Who is the Morristown area Person of the Year?
On Dec. 19, Time magazine named President Obama their Person of the Year for a second time.
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 Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teen who was shot by extremists for her advocacy of education for women in that country. But, the president took the title again four years after he first won the award as president-elect in 2008.
But, these are national, global issues. What about right here? Who do you think is the Morristown area's Person of the Year—the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse”?
The poll will be up for voting until 11:59 p.m. on Monday, New Year's Eve. The Morristown/Morris Township-Morris Plains Patch Person of the Year will be announced on New Year's Day.
Good luck to the nominees!
