The Macon County League of Women Voters hosted a program that featured former Sheriff Homer Holbrooks and current Sheriff Robbie Holland. Former Sheriff George Moses was invited, but could not attend.
The League meets every second Thursday for a "Lunch with the League" program that features various speakers of interest. The League has a Facebook Page and a page on the North Carolina League of Women Voters website.
The Sheriffs spoke about being the sheriff (and positions they held within the department before running for office) and the challenges that come with the job and the changes that the Macon County Sheriff Department has undergone through the years. Sheriff Holland handed out a list of the sheriffs that Macon county has had since it's formation in 1828. Sheriff Robbie Holland is the 26th man to be sheriff in the department's 185 year history.
The Macon County Sheriff Department has a page on the Macon County website. There are some links on the left hand side to an infrequently updated blog and press release page.
Here is a list of the sheriffs of Macon County that I gleaned from the handout the Sheriff distributed to the lunch attendees:
|Administration||Sheriff||Term of Office|
|B.W. Bell|| |
|8||James G. Crawford||1857-1861|
|9||J.L. Moore, Jr.||1862-1868|
|21||H. Davis Dean||1905-1908|
|32||Robert "Robbie" L. Holland||2002-Present|
