Former county commissioners Harold Corbin, Allen Bryson, Janet Greene, Mark West, and Bob Simpson will offer their thoughts on the changes Macon County government has faced, the issues that were prominent during their time in office, and how citizens and leaders viewed each other and the county.

“These individuals are uniquely positioned to reflect on our recent history,” said Barbara McRae, who helped organize the program. “I think their comments will be invaluable for our understanding of the issues facing the county today.”

“It is a time to reflect and remember,” he said. “The reason the holiday was created so that brave Americans who unselfishly sacrificed themselves for our way of life would never be forgotten. We should stop and remember; we must remind ourselves to pause and solemnly reflect on the sacrifices made by so many on our behalf.”
