Messenger Reporter

HOUSTON COUNTY – Let the debates begin! The final results of our readers’ choices for the Best of Houston County are in and have been tabulated. 

The Messenger is excited to bring you the survey results for a variety of services which are provided locally and we would like to thank you for helping us to determine who really is the Best-of-the-Best!

The online poll began in mid-November with The Messenger asking readers to provide us with their nominees for the Best of Houston County in 60 categories.

The deadline for nominations was Dec. 11. Once all the nominations were entered into our database, the nominees were culled down to the Top 3 and the survey was re-opened so readers could vote. Voting was closed on Dec. 19. 

Remember – the nominees and winners were chosen by you, the readers. We merely provided a forum for you to express your opinion.

Thank you to everyone who voted! This edition of The Messenger literally wouldn’t exist without you. And please extend a hearty congratulations to all of our winners. So, without further ado – the winners of the Best of Houston County are:
