Dogg received 33% of the 123 votes registered, ahead of real estate mogul Geoff Palmer’s 25%. Defying expectations (my own, specifically), South Central Farmers enemy Ralph Horowitz only received 17% of the votes. The Giant Village organizers received 11%, and Indie 103.1 execs earned a token 7%.
A remaining 7% gave write in candidates – four of which were for the Tribune Company. Apologies for leaving this one off the initial ballot! Other write in candidates included “liberal anti-development” bloggers (thanks, btw!), Kenny Pierce, and “meruelo” (sic)…
As part of the award package, Zuma Dogg receives a hastily Photoshopped image of himself by me, this link to where he can receive a well earned spanking (on his own dime), and of course the title and all the free publicity associated with it.
Congratulations, Zuma Dogg! May your heart grow three sizes today.
