Six months under a microscope is a long time.
Glenside, PA (PRWEB) June 13, 2014
Jim Paskill, president of higher education marketing firm Paskill Stapleton & Lord comments on the unusual circumstance of having two political contestants in a hot race for congress working at the same small college. In Hollywood or on Broadway they say all news is good news but Mr. Paskill speculates about how a nasty political campaign could reflect poorly on the good name of their employer, Randolph-Macon College.
Sally Herships, (http://www.marketplace.org/people/sally-herships) a regular contributor to NPR’s program Marketplace interviewed Jim on Wednesday afternoon. She interviewed two others for her piece, Dan Hurley of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and the president of Randolph-Macon College, Robert Lindgren.
Mr. Lindgren says that the two professors, David Brat and Jack Trammel are both gentlemen and will conduct themselves appropriately. Jim Paskill reflects that the time between now and the election is a long time to be under a microscope.
We’ll watch the race and see how this all plays out. To listen to the piece aired Wednesday evening click on this link: http://www.marketplace.org/topics/education/surprise-winner-virginia-randolph-macon-college.
