The Orange County Register is preparing its annual list of the Most Influential People in Orange County, and we could use your suggestions once again. We are looking to recognize 125 people who made a difference in our county of 3.2 million people, and we need your help.
We all know the people who are in the spotlight all year, but what about those who do amazing things in the background? We count on you to let us know about the teachers, medical professionals, volunteers and amazing kids who did incredible things outside the spotlight.
