POMEROY — Meigs County’s oldest active precinct worker was recognized on Tuesday at the Meigs County Board of Elections.

Ruby Brewer, age 92, has served as a precinct worker on election day at the South Olive precinct in Long Bottom since 2008.

Brewer was presented a proclamation from Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, as well as a letter of commendation from the Meigs County Commission which was presented by Commissioner Randy Smith.

Since 2008, Brewer has worked each election day at the precinct in Long Bottom. Brewer did not recall how exactly she got her start as a precinct worker, but Director Meghan Lee said it was likely in response to the board of elections looking for precinct workers.

Asked if she planned to continue serving as a precinct worker during future elections, Brewer said she planned to do so as long as she is able.
