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.
