Editorial: Kudos to Journal’s ’18 Readers’ Choice picks

From burgers to brew, from casinos to car care, from doctors to dining out, the votes have been counted, the glasses raised and the well-deserved accolades delivered.

More than 500 people turned out Aug. 17 for a festive evening at Hotel Albuquerque to honor the winners in this year’s Albuquerque Journal Readers’ Choice voting, followed by a 64-page publication in Sunday’s Journal featuring the honorees.

Melissa Stock, the Journal’s marketing director, said about 60,000 single votes were cast, “all in free-form-thinking fashion, meaning this was a write-in ballot controlled by each voter.”

As she said in a letter to Journal readers, “this contest was all about you and YOUR preferences.”

There is no shortage of bad news in today’s world; this was a chance to celebrate many of the popular and positive businesses and people in our community – including our own Journal honorees. A special thanks to the many Journal readers who voted and congratulations to all those honored.

This editorial first appeared in the Albuquerque Journal. It was written by members of the editorial board and is unsigned as it represents the opinion of the newspaper rather than the writers.
