National Election Vendor uses DeCaro's remarks for Customer Spotlight

Earlier this year I introduced new poll-worker management software to the office.  This has allowed us to go almost completely paperless in organizing and scheduling more than 200 poll workers for November.  Recently, the vendor used my remarks for the Customer Spotlight section of their national newsletter.

Town of Greenwich, CT has been an EasyPollWorker customer with EasyVote Solutions since July 2019. The town of Greenwich is the largest town on Connecticut's Gold Coast, it is home to many hedge funds and other financial service companies. It was first settled in by the Europeans in 1640 when residents of New Haven bought lands from the Native Indians inhabiting the area. The community was named after a town in England. 
Here is what Fred Decaro III, Registrar of Voters has to say:
"With one election under our belts, I wanted to say thank you for the support we received from Patrick in helping us run the software. He responded to questions on the weekend, and was generally unflappable.
We're looking forward to your next release, and to trying to use the poll-worker website portion.
We went completely paperless in terms of our communications with 200 poll workers. And for the first time we used a combined hiring list and payroll docs and training sign-up forms, even though in our bi-partisan system each party was responsible for hiring 1/2 of the poll workers.
We look forward to enhancements to the report generation capabilities. We had to export materials several times and use a mail-merge to get the forms we wanted. We would love to be able to do all of this within EasyVote.
All-in-all, however, we are looking forward to our next election (which may be a Special Election as soon as mid-January) and continuing to improve our use of the product.
UPDATE: Our Special Election is being held on a wintry January 21. The election was declared by the Governor on Friday, December 13, and we had exactly 45 days to prepare. Although we only had to hire half the usual number of poll workers, the fact that we were losing so many snowbirds made it a challenge.
All of the work which goes into setting up the first election makes working on subsequent elections much easier. It was great to be able to use all of the templates we created.
We were able to get out an email blast to our "first choices" of poll workers very quickly, and then use the visual indicators within EasyVote to mark off who did and did not confirm. By Christmas, we had a second set of invites out, and by the New Year 95% of our poll workers were confirmed for election day and for their training class.
We find we communicate more often with our poll workers thanks to EasyVote. Now we send out reminders prior to training classes, last minute changes, and even a customized lists of each poll workers colleagues so they can contact each other prior to the election.
Can't wait for the next release!"
