Best Geezer

Jean Godden

Say what you want about this gossip columnist-cum-city councilmember, but Jean Godden is hella productive at an age (79) when most people are content to play shuffleboard between Price Is Right reruns and spoonfuls of applesauce. To win re-election, she'll have to topple her most formidable—and youthful—opposition to date, but Godden's at a point where simply putting her ridiculously recognizable name on the ballot counts as a brilliant campaign tactic. One senses that when she retires, it'll be on her own terms. If she ever retires, that is. MIKE SEELY
