As anyone that's been reading Streetsblog for more than a year knows, at the end of the year we hand out a series of "Streetsie" awards. Some Streetsies are tongue in cheek, but others are a sincerely meant honor to the people and organizations that are making Los Angeles a more livable place to live, work and play.
In past years, we've always asked our readers to help us choose who we honor through a reader's poll on the page. For the first time, this year we're opening up the nomination process as well. If there's someone you think we should honor as "Elected Leader of the Year," "Activist of the Year," "Journalist of the Year," or "Public Servant of the Year" please let us know in the comments section.
A couple quick notes, people cannot win the same Streetsie more than once and neither Streetsblog staff nor Board Members are eligible for awards. No matter how much you want to give all our awards to Juan Matute, you can't. I'm sorry. I know it's a huge disappointment.
We'll announce Streetsblog's picks next week and people will have until the close of business on January 3 to vote in the People's Choice polls.
