February will swiftly be upon us, and with it the “Best of Davis” edition of The California Aggie. This issue is a rare opportunity for readers to provide comprehensive input to the campus community and subsequently the private businesses that make up the social nebulus that surrounds the People’s Republic of Davis.

Voting will begin this weekend. Check out theaggie.org for more information.
