Meeting Molly..

I met Molly Broad a couple of months ago during a County Administration course at the North Carolina Institute of Government. The former Chancellor of the University of North Carolina system is now on the faculty there and, after a few moments of pause, I introduced myself and had a pleasant conversation with her.

Molly was a former School Board member in New York and we talked about electoral politics and the challenges she faced as Chancellor. We both chuckled when she said one of the hardest parts of her transition is not having four secretaries and, of course, period of decompression from the stresses, demands and adreneline of public life.

I wish her well in her transition and hope she gets many opportunities to spend time with her grandchildren.
