We’ve been doing the Best of Warren County contest for more than five years now, and it’s been a delight to see its progress.
In the early years, we had a limited number of categories. Voting was done only on paper and usually totaled just a few hundred — which we were all grateful for since we were counting them by hand.
And our merchants usually avoided campaigning. It was unseemly, they argued.
Today, more than 1,700 votes were cast, many of them online. Merchants are finding the fun in recruiting their customers to support them.
Best Of is being recognized as what we originally intended it to be — a light hearted competition that celebrates the vibrant business community we have in our county.
Congrats to all the winners, and to all those who received votes. See the full section here on indianolarecordherald.com
