Mayor, Pardoned Felon Appointed To State ABC Commission

A politician, who once served three months in prison, has been appointed to the state ABC Commission.

Zander Guy, currently mayor or Surf City, was named to the state board Wednesday by Governor Beverly Perdue.

In the late 1980's Guy resigned as Jacksonville mayor and later served time for obtaining property under false pretenses. Guy was a Jacksonville insurance agent who authorities say pocketed premiums and failed to actually write the policies.

He was later pardoned by then Governor Jim Martin.

In a news release, the Governor's Office said Guy has been a realtor and developer for more than 25 years and was also a member of the N.C. Banking Commission.

The ABC Commission has three members, appointed by the governor, and oversees the control, sale, purchase and consumption of alcoholic beverages in the state.

    Anyone talking crap about Zander should come to Surf City and see the good he has done here! Everyone makes mistakes in their life so good for him that he is a respectable citizen and public servant!

    Thank goodness he was granted a pardon! Mike Easley only granted FIVE pardons out of the 756 pardon applications in his term and Perdue may follow his lead. When a person does their time for the crime, give them some reprieve! The emotional distress caused by years of failing to provide for their families due to being penalized TWICE for a crime is enough! If it is a non-violent crime, give them a pardon...a second chance at life! Who are you to deny them that right!??

    Actually "get only the facts you like", Debt fully paid! His sentence was completed years ago. DUH! HE OWED YOU NOTHING! When it is over, it should be over! Examine your own life, if you find a halo, give it back. None are without sin.

    Your right "get some of the facts", he was pardoned. That means it is as if he was never convicted. He is innocent. Good for Mr Guy.

    There are three kinds of people. 1. Those who have made mistakes and suffered public consequences. 2. People who have made mistakes, but have never been held accountable and admit as much. 3. People who have made mistakes, have never been caught and lie about it like the hypocrits that they are. Good for Mr Guy, people should be allowed to pay for their mistakes and have it be over, OVER! If you dolts think he should have gotten a life sentence for his offense, change the law. Then tend to the cracks in your own glass houses.

    (No wonder old Bev wants to close all those prisions and mental hospitals) I am not even going to think of all the widespread unemployment and honest people needing job's who aren't felon's. Bev enjoy your job...Your days as 'master chief' are numbered. NC is ready for election time!

    That is crazy. What does this say about our state leadership. The Governor is rewarding criminals.

    Hey Anonymous! You are very convincing hiding behind the anonymous post. I am pretty sure you feel like the rest of us in the current government climate which is scared that they will somehow come for you and your family in ways not imagined. I wonder how miserable the governors office can make the average citizen of this state if they wanted too. The self destruction of this government has begone and the best thing to do is get out of the way so you can stay healthy enough to pick up the pieces and make a real difference in whatever new emerges from the ashes.
