Best City Department

Of course you adore those folks responsible for acre upon acre of play space. As for those in uniform, well, think about what that means as a compliment.

Austin Police Department
715 E. Eighth

Best Community Program

Totally neat-o trucks and (thank you very much) they even take milk jugs now.

Austin Recycles
Solid Waste Services

Best Councilmember

No flowery description here: Max is just plain old cute. He also embodies this city's hippie past growing up into the Nineties.

Best Effort To Control Pollution/Improve The Environment

Renewing faith with the ongoing concept that a decent, environmentally sound city is worth fighting for.

Save Our Springs Alliance
221 E. Ninth #300

Best Lobbyist/Consultant

Another return winner, Johnson's doing something right.

Best Local Eccentric

Carl, if you win this one more time, you're not eccentric, you're mainstream. But who else can twirl flowers so skillfully?

Best Local Scandal

Political buffs found this more thrilling than O.J. "It was fun watching the rats scurrying around and jumping ship - a real sporting event."

Brackenridge Hospital
601 E. 15th

Best Local Visionary

By staging an honorable campaign and defining a civic vision that realizes the part of the little men and women in our big town, Slusher almost knocked the incumbent off the dais. We're proud to call him one of us.

Daryl Slusher
Eighth & Colorado

Best Public Servant

Please reissue this sentiment when that burning Bush comes banging.


Best Rumor

We gave you a whole year to think of something new ("Glen Maxey is straight," maybe?), and this is the best you can do?

Ann Richards

Best Texas Legislator

Glengarry, Glen Maxey: the true tale of a community guy fighting the evil forces of Proposition 22 and MoKan.
