Best Fake L. Brooks Patterson Quote 

“I love Detroit.”

Now, we’ve been down on Patterson, Oakland County’s top elected leader, since a New Yorker profile published earlier this year revealed an array of Detroit-bashing remarks from the 75-year-old. The rehashed Patterson quips about turning Detroit into an Indian reservation didn’t resonate with MT readers who offered some worth noting, like an ode to Brooks’ past run-ins with the law (“Honest, offisher, hic, I wuz in the back seat singing!”). In the end, a simple declaration that must be difficult for the suburban leader to ever mutter gained the most votes: “I love Detroit.”

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
