Democrats nominate Giles, Fish, Robinson; Becker is GOP winner
William H. Giles, Robert B. Fish and Paul W. Robinson won Democratic nominations for Norwalk City Council Tuesday as David H. Becker defeated G. Thomas Hutton for the right to run for second ward councilman on the Republican ticket.
The city-wide Democratic contest for three councilman-at-large nominations and the second ward Republican race were the only primary elections in Huron County.
Lawrence Bresson lost in the four-way Democratic race. The margin between the top vote-getter of the four candidates, Giles, and Bresson, however, was only a matter of 13 votes, according to the unofficial returns.

Joseph Fisher and Flora Pflieger were married May 13, 1919 by the Rev. Albert J. Aust in St. Alphonsus Church, Settlement Road.
Fisher worked as an apprentice piano tuner at the Meister Piano Company beginning in 1912. In 1917 he went to work for Gennels of Detroit, Mich. but moved back to Monroeville in 1918 to start his own business.
In 1925 Fisher moved his business to Norwalk in partnership with O.D. Zoll, under the business name of Fisher and Zoll. He bought Zoll out in 1930 and has been in business for himself ever since as Fisher Music, 9 West Main St.
While working as piano tuner, Fisher did tuning for all of the major symphony orchestras of the day. He traveled around the county and tuned pianos for the Garrick House, Detroit, and for Columbia Artists and RCA Victor.
Mr. and Mrs. Fisher have four children, Mrs. Charles (Marian) Reichert, Mrs. Tom (Lois) Hug, John R. (Bob) and Howard, all of Norwalk.
