Best local politician

Mayor Dave Bieter

Readers' Picks

Last year, readers were discontented, and there was no Best local politician. But this year, Mayor Bieter must have raised his cachet, because he was promoted to First Place, reclaiming his title from past years. Perhaps it was Bieter's victory lap with Kristin Armstrong? Perhaps readers can't wait to take a train from Grainey's to the Bouquet? Maybe it's his regular commute via bicycle. Or maybe it's just that he's just such a likable dude.

Second Place: Rep. Nicole LeFavour

Third Place: Gov. C. L. "Butch" Otter
