Who Is Buckhead'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 our town!


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 Buckhead's Person of the Year—the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse”?

Buckhead certainly had their share of newsmakers and influential people in 2012, from political and business leaders to those folks simply picking up a rake or a shovel to make our communities a little cleaner.

So tell us your pick in the comments section below!

Superintendent Errol Davis - he may not have made the people in South Atlanta very happy this year (school closures) but for many people in Buckhead,he definitely did right!
