Who Will Land on the Cover of Our "Who Runs SF" Issue?

Last year it was Rose Pak. This year, it's anyone's guess.

Who is the 2013 Rose Pak?

Who is the 2013 version of Rose Pak?

Last December, we declared that Chinatown power broker Rose Pak "ran" San Francisco. Pak is obviously a tough act to follow, but we think we came up with an equally powerful person to grace the cover of our 2013 "Who Runs SF" issue—hitting newsstands this Thursday.

Who will it be this year? The Twitter billionaires? The opponents to 8 Washington? Mayor Ed Lee? Marissa Mayer? Batkid? We've assembled a 25-person short list of nominees, and we want you to vote for the candidate(s) who have had the greatest overall impact on the Bay Area this year. 

If you correctly predict our cover subject, you'll be entered to win a free lunch at a local power restaurant, plus a pair of VIP tickets to our issue release party in December. 

Take your best guess here.
