Democratic Women host luncheon, talk
Retired Appalachian State University political science professor C. David Sutton will discuss the history and culture behind the voting habits of Appalachian people at the April luncheon of the Democratic Women's Club of Watauga County.
The club will meet on Wednesday, April 10, at 11:30 a.m. at the Golden Corral in Boone (1822 Blowing Rock Road). Members and guests will enjoy the "dutch treat" buffet, with the speaker scheduled for 12:10 pm.
Sutton is a graduate of Indiana University and taught Appalachian politics at ASU for many years. Following each national election, he regularly published an analysis in the Appalachian Journal of voting trends in the 13 states which make up the Appalachian region, and he spent much of his career at ASU researching political personalities and political parties in the mountain region and how they functioned.
The Watauga County Democratic Women's Club is inaugurating a new meeting time (second Wednesdays of each month) and a new meeting place at Golden Corral under new Chairwoman Loretta Clawson. Sue Counts is the new vice chair and schedules the speakers.
The meeting is free and open to the public.
