Cook County clerk honors ‘best of the best’ poll workers

Daily Southtown

Cook County Clerk David Orr recently honored “the best of the best” suburban Cook County poll workers for their dedication, hard work and depth of election knowledge at a recognition ceremony, according to a press release from the clerk’s office.

Of nearly 10,000 suburban poll workers, about 70 were selected for special recognition and invited to attend the ceremony, the release said.

Honorees from the Southland and their townships or polling places included James Leech and Alberto Mendoza (Bloom); Randall Visser and Lurene Fields (Bremen); Scharronne Shipp and Shevelle Carter (Calumet); Judith Drong and James Whittaker (Lemont); Daisy Roman and Janet Krusenoski (Orland); Mary Watson and Anita Kieca (Palos); David Brooks and Catherine Capriglione (Rich); Maria Espitia and Guadalupe Ochoa (Stickney); Thomas Jones, Henry Eizenga, Byron Jones and Patricia Matthews (Thornton); Cindy McClanahan and Eric Hermosillo (Worth); Scott Waicekauskas and Alice Burnette (early voting); and Thomas Haggerty and James Ulisse (nursing home).

Orr’s annual recognition ceremony was held at the Cook County building at 69 W. Washington St. in Chicago, the release said. Orr was joined by staff, including director of elections Noah Praetz.

Orr reminded the poll workers of the changes they’ll encounter on Election Day on Nov. 4: wider use of e-poll books and Election Day registration, as well as an array of referenda, the release said. He said a great characteristic of a seasoned poll worker is his or her ability to learn and help voters adapt to those changes, the release said.

“You demonstrate the leadership to guide new judges and the savvy to work gracefully through the changes,” Orr said in the release.
