Now that 2013 has arrived, we're looking back at 2012, and, specifically, who Sharon Patch readers looked at as the "Person of the Year".
At Patch, we know it's important to pause and recognize the community members who make the neighborhood a better place, each and every day. Who contributed time and effort to planning that great event, or helping out a fellow resident in tough times? Maybe it's that person's positive spirit that impacts the community. Perhaps the person you're thinking of performs one of those "thankless" jobs we just can't live without.
One local resident, Paula Keefe, weighed in with her nomination on Dec. 17:
I nominate William Fowler, Finance Director for the Town of Sharon. No one puts in more hours and has more diverse duties at Town Hall. He is the glue that holds things together. Mr. Fowler strives to do what is best for the Town even if the job is unpopular or controversial. His is one of those thankless jobs that has to be done. He does it with dedication and tirelessly. I am not related to him or close to him personally but have had a bird's eye view on a part time basis of this man's contributions.
