Top 10 Mayor Tom Photos of '09

Mayor Tom Leppert isn't an easy interview to snag these days. At least, not for us here at the Observer. But that doesn't stop us from catching a glimpse of the man whenever we get the chance, and, of course, capturing snapshots along the way. Yup, we've developed quite a fondness for the unique and inspired Leppert photo here at Unfair Park HQ, which is why I bring you another year's worth of my favorites.

Feel free to chime in and provide links to ones you feel I've left out, and let's get a caption contest started while I try to convince Robert to dig up something for a prize.
