Logan Grodsky announces intent to step down as student body treasurer

UNC junior Logan Grodsky poses for a portrait in the Student Union on Thursday, Sep. 28, 2023.

Logan Grodsky announced his plans to step down from his role as student body treasurer of the Undergraduate Senate by the end of the calendar year during a Sept. 26 meeting.  

Grodsky affirmed his plans the next day in a memo to senior Student Government leaders titled "Intention of the Treasurer to Resign." 

In the memo, he said he believed he had accomplished everything he set out to do as treasurer and could no longer justify the expenses that the role has taken on his classes, well-being and relationships. 

“It was no one thing in particular that precipitated this to be very clear," Grodsky said. "It was the culmination of a lot of understanding of the impact of a very time-consuming role like this.” 

Grodsky joined the Undergraduate Student Government during his first year and was elected to the Undergraduate Senate in October 2021. Last year, former Student Body President Taliajah "Teddy" Vann appointed him to be student body treasurer. He was then re-appointed for a second term by current Student Body President Christopher Everett.  

Everett declined The Daily Tar Heel's requests for comment on Grodsky's intent to resign.

The treasurer is responsible for overseeing the process of how student organization fees are allocated and spent by student clubs, in collaboration with UNC administration and the Carolina Union.

Grodsky said he will not resign as treasurer until he is confident he can find a properly qualified successor. He said he will continue to remain in the position if he is unable to. 

In his memo, Grodsky said Andrew Forbes, chair of the Senate Finance Committee, is the only current person who satisfies all of his criteria for successfully fulfilling the treasurer role.

However, he went on to say that it would be too disruptive to the financial process for Forbes to leave his current position.

In an interview with The DTH, Forbes said Grodksy’s reforms as treasurer helped more student organizations access funding. 

Forbes confirmed that he would not take Grodsky's job. 

“I will say confidently I'm staying where I am now until the end of the year. I don't have any intention to take on that role as treasurer,” Forbes said. 

Grodsky is currently working with USG officers within his cabinet to find a different qualified successor for treasurer. He said he believes he will be able to find a replacement before the start of 2024.
