The readers have chosen Chris Caputo as the Best Local Activist and Best Wilton Manors Commissioner!
The last time SFGN readers voted Chris Caputo the Best Local LGBT Activist (Nov. 25, 2020), he was just elected to the Wilton Manors City Commission.
A year later, Commissioner Caputo is Broward’s Best in two categories: Best Local LGBT Activist (for the second year in a row) and Best Wilton Manors City Commissioner. In this dual role Caputo serves two constituencies: his LGBT community and the people who live in his hometown. Here, as in other matters, Caputo has performed admirably.
“I wake up every single day incredibly grateful for the job I’ve been elected to do,” Caputo said. “Being involved in and connected to our community is such an incredible source of happiness for me. Being city commissioner has provided me with a platform to advocate for issues that matter to our community. Whether my advocacy came in the form of an official city resolution, serving on the boards like the Chamber of Commerce and WMBA, or even something more lighthearted like my regular cameo appearances in Ronnie Larsen’s ‘Sauna’ show, I try to say YES to every opportunity to make an impact in this city I love.”
