As recently reported, Bryan Boyd stepped down as Clerk of the Supreme Court on Friday. We will miss Bryan, but wish him all the best in his new position.  Bryan’s exit had the potential to create a gaping hole in the leadership of the Clerk’s office. The Supreme Court, however, has found an ingenious solution to its dilemma: the return of Christie Cameron Roeder.

Before retiring in June 2016, Christie Roeder served as clerk of the Supreme Court for over 25 years.  As of today (Monday, October 16), Christie has been coaxed out of retirement and will serve as interim Clerk while the Supreme Court searches for its next Clerk of Court. Christie’s return brings stability to the Clerk’s office during this new transition period.  It also buys the Supreme Court a little breathing room in its search.  The next Clerk will also benefit from Christie’s guidance during the transition period. (The job posting for the Clerk of Supreme Court position is here.).

Many thanks to Christie for her return to service of The Old North State. Or on a more personal level, “Welcome back, Christie! We have missed you!”
