Now that we’re into 2021, it’s with a sense of cautious optimism that life may finally return to normal in the coming months. Or should we call it the New Normal? There is no doubt that 2020—year of the pandemic—was brutal. As COVID-19 battered the economy, business owners fought heroically to keep their doors open and their companies viable, while civic leaders and influencers stepped forward to help the region survive the crisis. Now, with the arrival of several highly effective vaccines that provide hope for a better 2021, it seems like a good time to recognize some of the people who have helped keep Sacramento running in difficult times.
