Ever wonder who are the most powerful movers and shakers in the Crossroads? Ever want to to vote on it?
The Advocate wishes to learn who are the "10 Most Powerful in the Crossroads," and the newspaper wants your input to do so.
This new feature begins by asking you to help us form a list of candidates.
To be considered powerful - defined, in part, as having great authority or influence - candidates must simply get things done in the Crossroads. You decide who fits that description.
Candidates must live in Victoria, Jackson, Lavaca, DeWitt, Goliad, Refugio, Calhoun, Wharton or Matagorda counties. And they must be alive.
Simply send us a list of the five Crossroads residents you believe to be the most powerful. You remain anonymous.
To submit your five candidates:
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Please type "Most Powerful" in the subject line.
Contact me at 361-580-6519 or the newsroom at 574-1222.
Send mail to Victoria Advocate, c/o "Most Powerful," 311 E. Constitution St., Victoria, Tx., 77901.
Post your list in here.
During the next two weeks, your votes will be counted to form the list of the 20 most powerful in the region. A story, set to publish Sunday, Feb. 1, will release the names on that list.
Then, we will ask you to narrow that list to 10 by again voting by any means possible.
Once the "10 Most Powerful in the Crossroads" is determined, we'll publish in-depth profiles about each person who made the list - beginning with the 10th Most Powerful and working backward to No. 1.
Thanks for your help,
Gabe Semenza / Advocate public service editor
