As first-time poll commissioners, we approached Saturday’s historic municipal election with the anxiety of a final exam. Instead, there was almost a festive atmosphere at our Jesuit High super-site, with compliments free-flowing and complaints non-existent.
We are sincerely grateful to Secretary of State Al Ater who provided knowledgeable and friendly staff at every turn. In particular, we appreciate the help of our Commissioner-in-Charge, Gloria Tabor, recruited from Jefferson Parish, who directed us in serving almost 300 voters from our CBD neighborhood. Brian Freese, Jefferson Parish Elections Department supervisor, was as efficient as he was courteous in overseeing this operation.
This may have been an Orleans Parish election, but it was truly a statewide effort!
