The second Mudgee Guardian People of the Year list aims to recognise the most influential, impactful and notable people in the region in 2020. Their impact could be positive, negative or somewhere in the middle, but one thing is certain, they made a difference.
Each person of the year piece was written not by us, but by those close to them, the ones who know them best.
Did we miss someone? If there's someone you'd like to nominate for person of the year, you can submit a written piece and a photo to this email.
