Oakton boasts many active residents who contribute to the community on a regular basis.
We want to hear about the best of your neighbors. Whether it's offering the proverbial cup of sugar or bringing fellow residents' concerns to county officials or representing the underrepresented in the community, this resident should stand out.
We'll keep accepting nominations through July 9. After that, nominations will be closed and we'll start the voting, so make sure to get in your favorites now.
All you need to do to nominate a neighbor is add his or her name in the comments below. If you already see the resident you want to nominate, make sure to add your comment about why s/he should be included. We may not be able to add all nominations to our poll, so make sure your favorite makes the cut.
