As City Manager, Marchell Adams-David is responsible for a lot of employees (about 9,000) who serve a lot of people (about a half a million citizens, plus a few hundred thousand more who work and play here). So when she hires people to work for the City of Raleigh--she has one of three roles selected by the City Council, the rest are hired, directly or indirectly, by her--she looks for the one trait that she thinks is most important, and a trait you'll find in her: a love for the work of helping Raleigh be the best it can be.
We talked so Adams-David about what got her into public service as a career, about covid and not only what it means currently but moving forward for employers and employees, and she became the latest guest to tell us she dreams of a water feature in Raleigh. We can make this happen, people!
