ABC Chairman visit Cherokee Nation

North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission Chairman Zander Guy met with Principal Chief Richard G. Sneed and other representatives of the Tribal Council of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians during a Dec. 4 visit to Cherokee.

“The North Carolina ABC Commission and the Tribal ABC Commission share common goals of revenue, control and service for the benefit of the people within our jurisdictions. As we find more opportunities to work together, I hope our relationship will continue to be strong and positive,” said ABC Commission Chairman Guy after the meeting.

In addition to meeting with Sneed and other leaders, Guy toured Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort and reviewed the various security measures in place at the facility to prevent sales to underage or intoxicated guests.

The North Carolina ABC Commission ships approximately 6,000 cases of spirituous liquor to the Tribal ABC Commission annually. The Tribal ABC Commission is in charge of regulatory oversight of all alcohol within the Qualla Boundary of Western North Carolina.
