Powell joins distinguished club of former Carroll County Chiefs of Staff Eagle Archives by Kevin Dayhoff May 5, 2014

Powell joins distinguished club of former Carroll County Chiefs of Staff Eagle Archives by Kevin Dayhoff May 5, 2014


The recent resignation of Steve Powell, chief of staff for the Board of Commissioners for Carroll County, brought back memories of other distinguished individuals in county history who have endured that arduous position: Richard "Pat" Hill, Robert A. "Max" Bair and George A. Grier, to name a few.

In full disclosure, this writer had the honor and privilege to have worked with every county chief of staff — executive assistant — since the position was created in 1959.

[…]

Whether you agreed or disagreed with them, those who have held the position deserve a special place in our hearts and prayers for their service and commitment to Carroll County; for it is a wonder they are able to retire and not be committed: On any given day, the chief must keep the wheels of government running smoothly.

[…]

Often, my visits to the office of the chief of staff reminded me of the lyrics to the 1970 David Bowie song, "All the Madmen": "Day after day / They take some brain away / Then turn my face around / To the far side of town / And tell me that it's real / Then ask me how I feel." http://youtu.be/jb7Xdu7STx8 Read more: http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/carroll/westminster/ph-ce-eagle-archive-0504-20140505,0,6364637.story

Meanwhile, it is only fitting that Powell will be leaving to take a job in a retirement home — as vice president of finance for Carroll Lutheran Village. Join me in wishing him the best.
