About Citizen of the Year

Every year since 1988, The Daily News has selected and honored a resident, and in some years more than one, as its Citizen of the Year. These are people who, through their personal or professional work, made the county a more prosperous, more livable, more civil, more civic or otherwise objectively better place.
