The 2018 Lee County Citizen of the Year award nominations are now underway. This annual award recognizes a Lee County citizen who has provided outstanding civic contributions to Lee County government. In 1991, the Citizen of the Year award was created in honor of Mrs. Burton, who died tragically in an automobile accident. She was a long-time Sanibel resident who spent many years serving as a voice of the people as well as playing an active role in Sanibel politics.
If you know someone who fits the qualifications, nominate them by Feb. 22 to help spread the love around.
