Democratic convention is Saturday

Mar 31, 2014

Haywood County Democrats will gather for their annual convention on Saturday, April 5, at the Haywood County Justice Center, 215 North Main St.t, Waynesville. Registration for convention delegates will begin at 10 a.m. and the business session will be called to order at 11 a.m. in Courtroom 2B.

Party Chair Janie Benson reminds all delegates representing the various Democratic precincts in the county that they must check in at the registration table prior to the start of the 11 business session in order to participate.

According to Benson, the primary business items will be to hear presentations by Democratic candidates running in the 2014 election and to elect delegates to represent the county at the NC District 11 Convention scheduled at Haywood Community College on Saturday, May 17.

“We are proud of our candidates and the convention is one of the best venues to showcase them,” said Benson.
