It’s our second year of featuring fabulous men who each give to our community through service to others, love of family and community and positive ways of living.
We were delighted with the number – more than 50 – and quality of the nominees this year. All were fantastic; choosing only 10 was a challenge. (We are already looking forward to next year’s edition and the opportunity to profile some we couldn’t include this time.)
As with our Women to Watch section, from which this publication grew, the men featured in these pages were nominated by you, our readers.
Our goal was to offer a cross section of men representing a diverse array of professions, lifestyles and community involvement. We accomplished that goal with the help of those readers who made the nominations.
In these days of burgeoning media outlets, from TV to podcasts, community journalism is still a unique opportunity for residents to get their local news – and only their local news – from respected, veteran journalists.
As always, we are here to inform our readers. This time the good news is about people who make our part of this world a better place to live.
Berkeley Independent is pleased to offer readers the enhanced ability to comment on stories. We expect our readers to engage in lively, yet civil discourse. We do not edit user submitted statements and we cannot promise that readers will not occasionally find offensive or inaccurate comments posted in the comments area. Responsibility for the statements posted lies with the person submitting the comment, not Berkeley Independent.
