Person of the Year: Kendra Arnold

You made your nominations, then voted those nominations until the end of 2012.

The Morristown/ Morris Township-Morris Plains Patch Person of the Year is Bike and Walk Morristown co-founder Kendra Arnold. Congratulations!

A Morristown resident for over 10 years, Arnold is a familiar sight around town, either leading an organized walk, on her bike, walking dogs or manning a booth seeking new members for Bike and Walk Morristown, an advocacy group promoting more and better options for bicycling and walking in town. She also has been a semi-regular blogger here on Patch.

"I was super flattered that I was included on this list, but I'm really thinking that this just shows how people in Morristown want to live in a place where it is a pleasure to walk and bike, and where they can hang out and meet their neighbors," Arnold said when informed of the honor. "I think everyone who was been volunteering like crazy and leading walks and planning fun bike events for Bike and Walk Morristown really deserves this award, but I'll totally accept it for them."
