Who’s the best in the Valley, for the Valley? | Opinion
Feb 14 2013, 3:51 PM
Next week, the list for our annual Best of the Valley competition should be nestled in your newspaper. For some years, the Record has conducted a reader poll on favorite businesses, services and public officials in the Valley. It’s one of the more popular contests we do annually, with reason.
We’re polling residents for their picks in nearly 60 categories in the contest, which is both an annual bragging-rights showdown among local business, and a snapshot of our community and its movers and shakers. It’s about more than business: It’s a way to gauge buzz for the best non-profit, the best Valley event, the best volunteer, firefighter, national treasure, police officer and city employee. Public servants and business people with a lot of friends, family and local connections typically get a good showing, but newcomers and dark horses can often shine.
