First PMC: 1984
In grammar school, Sam Zoll delivered newspapers. In college,
he mowed lawns, toiled in a factory, and worked as a janitor.
By twenty-three, the son of an immigrant father was serving
on the Salem City Council while teaching high school by day,
studying law at nights, and starting a family with his wife
Marjorie. In 1973, in the middle of his second term as a Salem
mayor, Zoll received his first judicial appointment. Three
years later, he was named chief Justice of all Massachusetts
District Courts, a position he held until he retired from
the bench in 2004. Today he chairs the Commonwealth Joint
Labor Management Committee. "You have a very special opportunity
to have an impact in the lives of so many people," say Zoll
about his long life of public service. "I'm the luckiest guy
in the world. And I hope I've made a difference."
"I showed up on time."
