Have you figured it out yet? Obama and Romney want your vote. The two candidates for president squared off for their second televised debate on Tuesday, just one more act in the theater of a campaign that's brought a cacophony of rallies to Richmond, a deluge — or delusion — of advertising, and a bottomless trough of pledges and promises.
Now sweep all that aside for a moment, if you can, and open yourself to the true candidates for change — the men and women on the following pages. You'll find selflessness, creativity, ideas, collaboration, curiosity, inspiration and actions above words.
For our annual class of Style Weekly's Top 40 Under 40, we continued to seek out the people who succeed professionally while making service a part of their lives, and in the process, lift the Richmond community. That wins our vote every time. — Jason Roop
