Nominate Canton's Person of the Year

If you know someone who made the town of Canton a better place in the last 12 months, nominate him or her today.

As we head towards the end of 2012, we're looking for Canton residents to weigh in on who they think stood out most this year.

By sending an email to Canton@patch.com, tell us about a fellow community member who impressed you with his or her dedication to the area.

At Patch, we know it's important to pause and recognize the community members who make the neighborhood a better place, each and every day. Who contributed time and effort to planning that great event, or helping out a fellow resident in tough times? Maybe it's that person's positive spirit that impacts the community. Perhaps the person you're thinking of performs one of those "thankless" jobs we just can't live without.

No matter the reason, we'd like to hear about him or her, so go ahead and nominate a person using the form below.

Be sure to let us know by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 20. At that time, we will take the suggestions and ask readers to weigh in on the nominations. We'll announce the 2012 Sharon Patch Person of the Year soon after.

I would like to nominate Canton Planning Board Members Jeremy Comeau and George Jenkins for Person(s) of the Year. While Jeremy is young, he has accomplished much during his ten years as an elected official, and a volunteer for various organizations in Canton. He has unconditionally given his time to the Planning Board, Community Theatre, Canton HIgh School Junior Statesman and various other causes and proves that age does not matter when it comes to public service. I believe he is also one of the few standing up to the corruption in town government as well as developers appearing before the town. George as Jeremy's partner in crime show that two very different people can do the right thing to support the town.George compliments Jeremy very well and brings his own experience to the table. He has been a trusted elected official for many years serving on various boards. While he was a contractor and developer, he was always able to do what was best for the citizens and not his pockets. These two exemplary citizens should share the title of Person of the Year for their contributions not just this past year but for their combined 40+ years of service to the Town of Canton.
