Join Us for Our December 8th Fundraiser, And Celebrate With Some of Our 2011 Streetsie Winners

On Thursday, December 8, Los Angeles Streetsblog will be hosting its first ever “End of the Year” party at 6:30 P.M. at 11555 National Boulevard 12226 Venice Boulevard.  The suggested donation is $25, but everything is on a sliding scale, nobody will be denied entrance.  For more information, check back here or sign up for the event on Facebook or check out the “top ten reasons” to party with Streetsblog we published earlier.

<drumroll> In addition to our contributors and Board of Directors, here are the six winners of our “People of the Year” Streetsie Awards.  We will announce the nominees for the People’s Choice Streetsies in December and you’ll get your chance to tell us if we missed anyone.  Click on the winner’s names to read more about why they were chosen as the 2011 people of the year. </drumroll>

Politician of the Year: Antonio Villaraigosa

Advocate of the Year: Sunyoung Yang

Advocate of the Year: Colin Bogart

Blogger of the Year: Brigham Yen

Government Worker of the Year: Rye Baerg

Streetsblog Contributor of the Year: Dana Gabbard

Yes, there are two advocates of the year this year. We all felt Colin deserved an award for his work in Glendale, but given that whatever award we gave him wouldn’t be repeatable given the uniqueness of his position in Glendale.  Thus, we decided to have two advocate of the year awards for 2011 for two different kinds of advocates working in different situations but making an amazing difference in Greater Los Angeles.
