TELL US: Who's Manchester'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 Manchester!

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 Manchester’s Person of the Year—the man or woman who, in Time-speak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse”?

Tell us your pick in the comment section below!

Molly Devaney should be Manchester's person of the year. She endlessly gives her time and talent to make Manchester a better place to live.

Chris Pattacini, Chairman of the Board of Education, is an exemplary Manchester citizen. He has served our community well as an effective leader, with the best interests of our students in mind. Chris would be an excellent choice for Manchester's Person of the Year

Pattacini is a good choice, Pelligrini is also up for consideration because of his work to clean up Broad street. How about whoever is responsible for getting MCC to come to main street? The head of the Manchester Road Race Committee too.

Chris Pattacini has led the BOE through the most ambitious restructuring of the Manchester Public School System since the 1950s. It is all about creating schools that people flock to, not run away from. The focus has been shifted from politics, back to our children. He has done so calmly, steadily and with a grace that the entire community should be proud of.

I'd say the construction worker who helped put the first wrecking ball into the Parkade should definitely get a medal pinned on his/her chest and a case of beer, let alone a Manchester Citizen of the Year award...

JK124 that was pretty funny and good! I like to give a plug for Anne Miller too. Although she is a business owner in town, she also serves on boards and donates a lot of time and effort for after school activities for children.
