Illinois Times presents to you, proudly, one more time, the Best
of Springfield, as determined by our readers and the friends BOS
wannabes recruit to vote for them. We had more than 12,000 votes this
year – the largest turnout ever – and 140 categories, a third more than
ever before. Thanks to all the voters who worked through a long ballot.
We always ask readers to vote local, and this year the voters get it –
all but a few winners are local through and through. IT readers know that supporting local businesses not only keeps your money here but adds character to our community.
