Finalizing our Voice of the Year list, a tradition we started just last year, isn’t something we take lightly.Any time you set out to curate a list of a select group of people, you inevitably have to make some hard choices. There were plenty of contenders we considered who ultimately didn’t make the cut.

Once our Voice of the Year list was published, we heard from more readers about who they thought deserved to make the list.

Since our Voice of the Year list is all about who provoked important discussions across San Diego, we wanted to keep the conversation going.

Check out our list below of more San Diegans who kick-started important discussions this year, including some new suggestions from readers. Comments have been edited lightly for style and clarity.
