Shortly after Time Magazine revealed their nominees for Person of the Year, a few of us here at GNA started thinking about who in our area has been the most influential and impactful.  We all had different thoughts on who that person would be. As 2017 comes to a close, is there a person who comes to mind that you feel did enough in the past year to be deserving of this honor? We want to hear your suggestions and the reason why.  As 2017 comes to a close, we would like nothing more than to honor someone in our community with the title of Capital Region Person of the Year.
