Democrats to hold spring rally Saturday

Apr 28, 2014


Haywood County Democrats will hold a Spring Rally including a barbecue dinner and cake sale from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Saturday, May 3  at the Tuscola High School Cafeteria.

Between 4:30 - 5, participants will have an opportunity to mix and mingle with the Democratic candidates running in the May 6 Primary Election.  The program will begin at 5 and will include a tribute to law enforcement in Haywood County.

Special guest, Buncombe County Sheriff Van Duncan, will open the program with a musical selection and also make some introductory remarks regarding the importance of quality service in law enforcement.  In addition, past and present law enforcement personnel will be recognized for their service and sacrifice.

“If you are not planning to vote early or if you are still undecided about who to vote for, the rally is an excellent opportunity to converse with the candidates before you go the polls on May 6,” said Democratic Party Chair Janie Benson.  “For those of you who have decided, it’s also a great chance for you to show your excitement and enthusiasm for the candidates you support.”

Rally tickets are $12.50 per person and can be purchased in advance from precinct chairs, at the Haywood Democratic Party Headquarters located at 286 Haywood Square, Waynesville, or at the door on May 3.  For further information, contact the headquarters office at 828-452-9607 or
