Name Your Bronxite of the Year

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was Time Magazine's person of the year - a controversial choice for some. For PETA, the animal rights organization, the honor went to Bill Clinton. Some media outlets and organizations chose someone less well-known. For a newspaper in Wisconsin, a local woman who works with homeless families got the nod.

Now we'd like you, our readers, to tell us your Bronxite of the year. The individual should be someone who's been a force for good, who's gone above and beyond. They don't have to have been the most "influential" (Time's criteria). But they must live and/or work in the Bronx. Perhaps your child's teacher, or a hard working community leader, gets your vote. Or your mom or your pastor. Whoever it is, we want to hear from you.

E-mail your suggestion to bronxnewsnetwork[at]gmail.com. Please tell us your name, their name, and why they're deserving. Oh, and if you have one, please send us their photo. Next week, we'll feature all your picks in a "Bronxites of the Year" post. And, space permitting, we'll include them in upcoming print editions of BxNN newspapers.
