Phil Kirk remembers his former boss, Gov. Jim Holshouser

Phil Kirk, who served as chief of staff to the late Gov. Jim Holshouser, penned this rememberance of his boss in the Salisbury Post:

"I had the opportunity to talk with Gov. Jim Holshouser on Saturday morning although he was unconscious and probably did not hear me, especially since his daughter, Ginny, said he did not have his hearing aids on.

"In case, he could hear me, I thanked him for being a mentor to me and for taking a chance on me and so many other young people at such an early age by bringing me into his administration. I also told him that I would be pulling on behalf of both of us for State to beat Carolina in the College World Series in baseball on Sunday afternoon, knowing that despite the tremendous challenges to his health, especially in the last year, he had never lost his sense of humor.

"There are many adjectives that come to mind in describing Governor Holshouser, but “integrity” is at the top of the list." Read the full piece here.
