There’s a new job opening at the University of Virginia, but you’ll need a very impressive resume. Former Governor Gerald Baliles (pictured) is stepping down as director and CEO of UVA’s Miller Center of Public Affairs at the end of the year. University President Teresa Sullivan says Baliles has had several noteworthy accomplishments during the past eight years. They include the National War Powers Commission and the National Discussion and Debate Series. Baliles is a 1967 graduate of the UVA law school and won the Governor’s Mansion in 1985. He will turn 74 in July. The Miller Center will launch an immediate search for his successor.
