Oyster Bay is filled with special people who make a difference, people who make an impact on our lives on a regular, sometimes daily, basis.
There are educators, business owners, volunteers, public officials, clergy members and others working to make Oyster Bay a better place.
Whether it was a Town of Oyster Bay councilperson who stopped to help you after Hurricane Sandy, a beloved Theodore Roosevelt impersonator who brightened your day, a firefighter who took time to comfort you after an incident at your house, or an organizer of a toy drive to help victims of the hurricane, Oyster Bay is filled with influential people.
So who was the most influential person of 2012? Nominate candidates in the comment section below, on our Facebook wall, or by Tweeting us @OysterBayPatch. Give us the name of your nominee and why they belong on our list. We will run a poll with the top 10 nominees in the last week of December.
