MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Ed Fisher was one of four election inspectors at the Mamaroneck Library's budget vote Wednesday, a role he has come to enjoy performing over the years
Fisher, a New Rochelle resident, worked his first election at the Mamaroneck Avenue School eight years ago, and has worked an average of three per year since. Although he worked the polls for the 2008 Presidential election, Fisher's most memorable election was for the 2008 Mamaorneck School Budget.
Not only did the community turnout in great numbers, but Fisher recalls many voters being angry over the proposed budget, which included a capitol project for the new Memorial Field. The budget was turned down.
Fisher retired in 2001 after running his own electronic surveillance business, Elscor Electronics for 25 years. The boating-enthusiast now keeps busy by lending a hand to friends in need of a handy-man for odd jobs around the house.
Although the job of an election inspector can be tedious, Fisher enjoys meeting new people and seeing old friends, many of which have work the same poll stations with him year after year.
Residents of the Village of Mamaroneck can vote Wednesday until 9 p.m. at the Mamaroneck Library. For more information on the library's 2012-2013 budget, click here.
