Rep. Rogers All Set To Introduce
Sheriff Bill In House On Tuesday
Bills Will Be
Put In Hopper
Hop Jerry Rogers is ready to
? introduce a bill which would
change the sheriff's office from a
j fee basis to a straight salary, and
include appointment of our depu
ties by the sheriff.
Rep. Rogers told The Mountain
eers by long distance that he plans
to introduce the bill in the House
of Representatives Tuesday,
"1 have a lot of encouragement
on the bill," Rep. Rogers said.
"Civic groups, farmers, CDI> of
ficers and others have told me they
felt the bill practical, and needed
in Haywood. Before I prepared the
bill. I received an endorsement
from 23 of the 29 precinct chair
men of the county.
"The endorsement of the chair
men. together with civic groups,
and a number of farmers who have
been here in Raleigh, and others
who have written me, gives me rea
son to believe that a large majority
of the people want te bill passed.
"In the past week or so I have
had farmers from Fines Creek,
Thickety, Crabtree, East Fork, and
several townships asking that the
bill be introduced.
The bill which Rep. Rogers plans
to introduce tomorrow provides for
a salary of $4,500 for tlio sheriff,
plus SI.000 travel expenses. Also
appointment by the sheriff of four
deputies, including a chief deputy
whose salary would be $270 per
month and the other three would
receive $250 monthly. Two cars
would be provided bv the county
for the use of the deputies. The
bill gurther provides that the sal
ary of the d <puties irtereasi $5 per
month, each year. , ,
L The fees t yllected by th> sher
, iff'F office for' serving or* ?pwpers
would go into, the general fund
i of the county, and the expenses of
the four deputies and sheriff and
car expenses would come from the
general fund of the county.
Rep. Rogers said the plea that
had been presented to him for the
bill was the need of additional law
enforcement officers in the rural
sections of the county.
Sheriff Fred Y. Campbell said
his plans. If the bill passed, was to
station two deputies in Beaver
dam and two in this end of the
Rep. Rogers Is Sponsor
Of State-Wide Bill
Calling For Referendum
Rep. Rogers is a sponsor of the
state-wide bill calling for a refer
endum next November 8 on the
question of permitting liquor sales
in each of the 100 counties of the
state, or none.
Rep. Rogers said Saturday night
he felt that measure had a good
chance of coming out of the com
mittee and onto the floor of the
House for a showdown fight.
The bill would not apply to
wine and beer.
An identical measure was kill
ed by the 1953 General Assembly.
