Creating a “Power Issue” is not a new idea; many lifestyle magazines have done it before. In most cases, the end result is a collection of “powerful” individuals from the community. We tried to do the same thing but were unable to agree on the selection criteria.
Do we include part-time residents? Do we just list people who are powerful now, or do we also include powerful people from the past? Do they have to be alive? Do we let our readers vote? Is it subjective or based on fact?
