The North Haven Democratic Town Committee announced the retirement of Patricia Jackson-Marshall, the town’s Democratic Registrar of Voters. Jackson-Marshall served the citizens of North Haven since 2009.
The Registrar of Voters performs all duties required by Connecticut General Statutes governing voter registration, while compiling and retaining accurate statistical information for federal, state and municipal agencies.
Jackson-Marshall also trained Election Day workers and volunteers, and led with integrity.
No matter the public pressures she faced, Jackson-Marshall took the time to ensure everyone’s vote was accurately tabulated.
Connecticut Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz, who, when secretary of the state, worked closely with Jackson-Marshall on election issues, said, “Patty Jackson-Marshall always ensured the highest standards for North Haven’s election process. Congratulations on your retirement and very best wishes for continued success.”
James Carew will take over for Jackson-Marshall. Carew was endorsed by the DTC at its 2021 nominating meeting.
North Haven DTC Chair Kathy Grant said, “Registrar of Voters was not just a job to Patty. It was a duty to uphold the integrity of our voter registration and election process in North Haven. Patty always took the extra steps necessary to ensure voters the peace of mind that every person’s vote was counted, and that her staff was well-trained to carry out the most important day in our democracy, Election Day. I personally could always count on Patty to answer any questions I had before, during and after Election Day. Patty leaves behind very big shoes to fill and although she will be missed by many at town hall, on behalf of the DTC, I wish her a very happy and well-deserved retirement.”
