Who's Hermosa 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 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 Hermosa 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 Monday, Dec. 31, in the comment section below.

My vote for man of the year for Hermosa Beach is our Mayor Jeff Duclos, for his effective participation and leadership in the numerous challenges Hermosa had to deal with and is still dealing with lately, including the Macpherson litigation and possible oil drilling issues, the appointment of a new City Manager, the recruitment of a new Police Chief, dealing with ongoing public safety issues in our downtown area, and dealing with the city budget and pension benefits issues. I am sure Mayor Duclos participated in numerous other challenging issues that are not listed here. It is my understanding Mayor Duclos is currently being considered for appointment to the California Coastal Commission, which would be an honor for Hermosa Beach to have one of its residents, and its Mayor, appointed. Finally, for the record, I believe that our interim Police Cheif Johnson is doing an excellent job, and that the City Council should consider appointing him as our new Police Chief rather than spend more time and money in the recruitment process for a new Policy Chief.
