Previously, we explained it:
ON THE AVENUES: Who (or what) is New Albany's "Person of the Year" for 2015?
A person, couple, group, idea, place, or machine that "for better or for worse ... has done the most to influence the events of the year."
Now we've narrowed the list, and here are the contestants for 2015.
Jeff Coffey and/or Dan Gahan ... not since the 1939 non-aggression pact have two chummy leaders combined to exert such consistent influence on a captive city.
"Quality of life" projects ... Striking, isn't it? Nowadays it's "my doggie needs a spray park," and not, "I need a real job."
New Albany property tax payers ... because they're ones actually paying (TIF-ing) for all of Dan Gahan's big-ticket "quality of life" projects.
The New Albany Street Piano ... Music has charms to soothe a savage breast, but as Jeff Coffey's Bored of Works showed, tone deafness is like Kryptonite when art's on the agenda.
Al Knable ... he came out of nowhere to record the highest vote total in the Republican at-large council race.
Make your choice in comments here, at Fb, or through e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org ... vote early, and often, and try not to drink too much while doing so.
