Your vote really counts here 

One of the most interesting things about working for Connect is how the same people who usually don't give us much respect also seem pretty intent on copying us whenever they can.

Case in point is our annual "Best of Savannah" Readers Poll, which is simultaneously by far the oldest and most successful of such local competitions, and also the most imitated.

Over the years we've become accustomed to other publications sometimes obsessively glomming onto whatever we're doing, and this is nowhere more apparent than with our Best of Savannah poll and special issue.

Beware of cheap imitators! Just because someone else has moved their own competition to almost the exact same time as ours doesn't mean they're affiliated with us. Quite the opposite.

And just because you'll often see other publications' major advertisers serendipitously receiving all the big awards - purely coincidentally, I'm sure - doesn't mean our competition is similarly operated.

As has been the case ever since we began Best of Savannah well over a decade ago, our winners are the winners, period. However our readers vote is how the cookie crumbles and how the winners get chosen, regardless.

Voting's open now at connectsavannah.com.

As usual, we ask that our readers pick at least 25 categories to answer (several, such as Best City Council Member for example, are drill-down menus, which will make this easier).

We do this A) to ensure that we get a full picture of the state of the art of Savannah's best of everything; and B) to keep egregious ballot-stuffing to a minimum - though we do encourage friendly lobbying!

Voting closes at midnight May 1 and our huge annual "Best of Savannah" special issue hits stands May 23.

So have fun with it - now's your chance to be heard and actually have your votes mean something!

  • Editor's Note: After the utility bill fiasco, now what?

    Overarching this entire discussion is one of Savannah’s recurring themes: We are overly reliant on outside consultants to find problems and make the recommendations to move forward that we are already paying a City Manager and City staff to determine and execute.

  • Editor's Note: It’s not Jolene Byrne who needs to go

    On this issue, always keep this in mind: The rest of your elected School Board is essentially working to keep local students from being able to attend college. Their vendetta against the Board President has reached such a fever pitch that they hold every child in the district hostage to it.

  • ‘Thoughts and Prayers’

    It is very clear to me that the majority of elected and public officials who say 'Thoughts and Prayers' are neither deep thinkers nor praying people.
