Who Is the Pacifica Person of the Year?

TIME magazine named President Barack Obama their person of the year. Tell us who you think should win from our town!

On Dec. 19, Time magazine named President Barack Obama as their Person of the Year.

“For finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union, Barack Obama is TIME's 2012 Person of the Year,” Time managing editor Richard Stengel explained in his note to readers.

The magazine invited votes on 40 candidates, including Obama, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Other options included The Mars Rover and the Higgs Boson Particle.

But who cares about the same-old, same-old? Who is Pacifica’s Person of the Year—the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse?”

Lynn Adams with Pacifica Beach Coalition. She does SO MUCH for our town, raising awareness about our environment and trying to reach young people as well via Earth Day.

I too suggest Lynn Adams.

I suggest all of the people who fought hard and died defending our freedoms. Starting with the Border Control Officer who was killed with weapons obama sold to the drug cartels. And then we have the Navy Seals, Marines who held off Al Qaeda terrorists while waiting for help that was never coming because Obama refused to send help. Then we should add all of America's business's that were terrorized by the EPA Director , who just resigned due to illegal emails and many alias names she used to hide her dirty work. Yes. Lynn Adam picks up garbage, big deal.
