Top 10 Mayor Tom Photos of '10

If 2010 turns out to be Mayor Tom Leppert's last full year in office before he attempts to snag Kay Bailey Hutchison's U.S. Senate seat in the March 2012 primary, it was certainly another productive year for the workaholic. Whoever takes his place has a lot to live up to as far as appearances go -- that is, since Leppert seemingly can be found somewhere in the city at any given time cutting a ribbon with oversized scissors, reissuing a speech or inking his name with a Sharpie onto the latest construction project.

So, much like I've done in past years, I took a look back at Leppert's 10 best photo ops and present them to the Friends of Unfair Park as a belated holiday treat. Enjoy, and please let me know your caption suggestions or link to any pics I missed in the comments. 10. Leppert signs his name inside the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.
