AP Analysis: Holland family has deep political roots

State Rep. Steve Holland has been saying for years that someone should write about his family’s political dynasty in northeast Mississippi.
It’s a great story, he promises. One that people would love to read.

Holland, D-Plantersville, has served in the state House since 1984. His wife, Gloria Holland, is mayor of Plantersville, a small suburb of Tupelo. One of his brothers, Billy Joe Holland, is a Lee County supervisor. And their mama, their sainted 80-year-old mama, Sadie Holland, is a Lee County Justice Court judge.
