Best Bathroom Campaigner (2001)

Dennis Gallagher

Denver city councilman Dennis Gallagher knew that politics could stink; he just didn't know how bad -- not until he attended a high school graduation party in Denver's Rocky Mountain Park and was shocked to find raw sewage backed up in the bathroom. And so last year, Gallagher named himself outhouse overlord for the privies in Denver's parks. Since then, he's investigated public restrooms in a number of parks and put pressure on the city's Department of Parks and Recreation to clean up its act in other ways. Just call him number one on number two.
