Best of Renton 2017 We’ve reached that time of year again where the readers of the Renton Reporter have made their voices heard. I am happy to announce the winners and finalists for 2017 which are listed within the pages in this week’s edition. The amount of participation we received from our loyal readers this year has far surpassed any other year. Thank you to those who took the time to vote. It is so nice to see how this community takes pride in their retailers, people and service providers. This is what makes this community so great. As we do every year we had multiple categories where there were ties in the finalist rankings. Congratulations to everyone who received votes, very well deserved. After tallying votes and then bestowing the honor of drawing the winners for the great prizes to my creative services manager, Julie Black, I am pleased to present the 2017 Best of Renton as picked by the readers of the Renton Reporter. A special thank you goes out to McLendon Hardware, Vince’s Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria and CD Danza Salon & Spa for generously donating the prizes to the lucky winners of our readership contest.
