Who's Middletown Township's Person of the Year?

TIME magazine named President Obama their person of the year for the second time. Tell us who you think should win from Middletown!


On Dec. 19, Time magazine named President Obama their Person of the Year, again!

The magazine invited votes on 40 candidates, including the president, Gabby Douglas and Kim Jong Un. Other options included The Mars Rover and the Higgs Boson Particle, Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, and Apple CEO Tim Cook. But, the President took the title again four years after he first won the award as President-elect in 2008.

So how about here at home? Who is Middletown Township's Person of the Year—the man or woman who, in Timespeak, “most influenced the news this year for better or worse”?

Tell us about your pick in the comment section below!

I too vote Kyle Bracken. I have never communicated with him. Thankfully, I didn't need storm assistance as my home was spared terrible damage. I do know that I read this guys facebook page everyday. I know he gave his time selflessly during and after the storm as many of us did. But when it was time to get back to work, this man's mind stayed in disaster mode. It would be a terrible disaster if the children affected here could not have a lively Christmas. I know that 400 families had a Christmas because of this man and his leadership skills. He had hundreds of people helping and donating. Each and every night AFTER work he collected toys, organized gift wrapping seasions, a giant party and all the while was sure to document it. Kyle Bracken. Fire fighter and Middletown's person of the year.

Campaign? (I'll get back to that) I never wanted to hold a p#ssing contest. The toy drive aside,But, we never heard the mayor' s announcement's as we had no power, no wifi, and very limited cell service. Note: make your website smart phone friendly:, more bandwidth ,or more server juice:.we got all of our info. Thru Kyle. I'm sure that the mayor is a good man.and did a good job or did his job good.this disaster brought out the best in a lot of us and made us better people. Neighbor helping neighbor. Kyle showed us that.as far as (a campaign) there is no prize here,no key to the town,no plague or statue. Only to acknowledge and praise the hard work Kyle did.
