Maynor Wins Sheriff*s Race
by Cmum Br my boy
Glenn Maynor became the first
Indian to win the Democratic
nomination for sheriff of Robeson
County on Tuesday. Maynor won the
election with the unofficial tally of
11,856 to 11,507 for Lum Edwards,
chief of detectives with tbe Robeson
County Sheriffs Department.
Edwards was, according to all reports
tbe candidate outgoing sheriff Hubert
Stone bad picked to replace him.
Anytime there isa history making
event, other events have oocuned
beforehand that sort of paves the way
for change. And so it was with Glenn
Maynor's victory Tuesday night. In 1
1974 O. Tom Blanks gave long time
sheriff Malcolm G. McLeod his first
real challenge for the office of Sheriff.
McLeod received 8870 votes in the
primary and Blanks received 7809
Blanks called for a tun off and was
defeated in the run off. That year
Indians voted more than 10,000 in the
sheriff*s race. McLeod eventually
selected Hubert Stone to be his
replacement.
On November 1, 1986 Sheriff
Deputy Kevin Stone, son of -Sheriff
Nothing was ever done about that
mcidem. From that day SheriffHuben
Stone had problems garnering any
support ft*his re-election in the Indian
community.
This murder and many other
I unsolved murders, accusations of
corruption in tbe sheriffs department
????
has haunted the reign of Hubert Stone
during his 16 years in office.
In 1990 Glenn Maynor challenged
Hubert Stone for sheriff. Maynor got
into a run off and Stone retained the
sheriffs office following the run. Mmy
Indian voters abeotutely refused to
vote for Stone and voted for James
Sandersou,the Republican candidate,
in the General Election.
Maynor will now face Sanderson
in the 1994 General Election. Much
speculation abounds about whether
that race will become a racial issue
with whites jumping across party lines
to vote for Sanderson. It is almost s
foregone conclusion that Indian voters
will renon to the polls and vote again
for Maynor.
On Tuesday, May 31, Maynor
received overwhelming support from
his own people and split the black
precincts and received some of the
white vote. It is unclear now whether
Edwards will call for a recount, it is
obvious, however, (toutthe unofficial
vote totals shown ou Page 7 that many
of the white precincts, as well as the
Indian precincts voted according to
night, many people paused- tfe
remember Julian Pierce, judicial
candidate who was slain in 1986.Tbcy
remembered Jimmy Earl Cunnangs,
They remembered John L. Godwin
who died in 1986. They remembered
many other Indian warriors who
fought long and hard to see Indians ui
positions ofpower. They remembered
the late Peter Brooks, theism James B.
(Jim) Cbsvis, the Iste O. Tom
B Unks and many many others who
didnot live to eee history in the making
on Tuesday.
Hubert Stone will retire from the
Sheriff's office in December. Many
people believe as they have
demonstrated at the polls that it is time
for a change and time for Robeson
County to coins out of the "Stone
Ape." It has been nmored that Stone
will be appointed Supervisor of the
Eastern Disti ici, U.S. Marshal Service.
That appointment, while he was
nominated by Congressman Charlie
Rose, has not been confirmed
