As an eventful year draws to a close, Patch is seeking nominations for the most influential people of the Glen Cove community for 2012.
We need your selections and a short message about why your candidate is deserving.
We've been through a lot this year; our community has grieved some sudden losses, suffered through a hurricane and endured a national election.
We ask for you to reflect on your choices, whether they be public figures or private people, and tell us your choices in the comment thread below. We would prefer to keep the process open, so please avoid emails. Deadline for nominations is Dec. 24.
Like last year, we'll compile a list of the top 10 people who made a difference in Glen Cove, and choose a winner. See that story here.
Thanks in advance -- MD.
