Los Angeles Downtown News Invites Readers to Reshuffle Power List

What’s the fun of a 2011 Power List if a reader can’t revamp it?

That seems to be the thinking of Los Angeles Downtown News executive editor Jon Regardie. After sharing his picks earlier this week for the 42 most powerful people in the corner of town that Tom Gilmore helped build, he is asking readers to chime in with their Top Ten remix. The best such lists will be shared in a future issue of the free weekly publication.

FishbowlLA took a crack at the exercise. You should too, if you have a moment and any affinity for downtown; it’s a fun little diversion. Here are our picks:

1- Tim Leiweke
2- Eli Broad
3- Antonio Villaraigosa
4- The blogosphere
5- Blake Griffin
6- Gustavo Dudamel
7- Rick Caruso
8- Charlie Beck
9- Eric Garcetti
10- Chick Hearn‘s statue
