And, as always, we want YOUR input!
So, reaching back to 2006, here are the standards:
A Politician may be described as “Anyone involved in Nebraska politics”.
Therefore it could be an office holder, a candidate, a campaign worker, a political party worker, a consultant, a member of the media – just about anyone you can think of involved in Nebraska politics.
That person should be judged on their influence making, news making, difference making, interesting-ness or any other thing that you would like to take into account.
Leavenworth Street will then laboriously sift through these suggestions, and any others we may come up with, to announce our Nebraska Politician of the Year.
You can list your nominee, and the reasons behind that nomination, in the comments section, or you can email them directly to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will announce the winner at some point the week after Christmas (but before 2009).
Let’s hear from you!
