State auditor to speak at Democratic rally

The Haywood Democratic Party will hold its annual Fall Rally Saturday, Oct. 29, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., with State Auditor Beth Wood serving as guest speaker.

The event will take place at the Canton Armory, 71 Penland Street, in Canton. It is a fundraiser for the Haywood County Democratic Party and is open to all registered Democrats.

Individual tickets cost $12.50 and may be purchased in advance at Democratic Headquarters, 286 Haywood Square, in Waynesville, or at the door.

Wood is North Carolina’s first woman to have been elected as state auditor, a position that she has held since January 2009. Prior to her election, she served in the state auditor’s office for more than a decade and previously served in the state treasurer’s office.

The program will include a “soup-line” dinner catered by Eric Feichter; a cakewalk; and speeches by state and local Democratic elected officials and by candidates running for municipal offices this fall, as well as other special activities.
