There’s a new generation of leaders on the job in Panola County.
Sheriff Cutter Clinton, 31, and County Judge Rodger McLane, 31, are now considered Panola County’s two most powerful elected officials. We spoke with them today.
Secretary for the department, Amanda Norman, says they received lots of community support this past week.
“We appreciate all of the love and support we received from the community. A lot of people reached out and said ‘we’re here for y’all.’ Let us know what you need,” said Norman.
