Sandy Lusk, Democratic activist and current associate executive director of the Hamilton County Democratic Party, was elected East Tennessee regional vice-chairwoman of the Tennessee Democratic Party by the members of the TNDP’s executive committee.
Ms. Lusk is a member of the state committee, along with three other members from Hamilton County.
Her election was made at the same meeting on Saturday at which new TNDP State Chairman Roy Herron was selected. She will co-chair the east Tennessee region with Mike Hampton, of Erwin, Tn.
“My responsibilities are to serve as liaison with Democrats in East Tennessee and the State Party,” Ms. Lusk said. “Both Mike and I will work to support and elect Democrats from our region. We are excited about building and strengthening the Tennessee Democratic Party and working with our new chairman, Roy Herron.”
Said HCDP Chairman Paul Smith, “We are delighted with the election of Sandy Lusk, who has been a tireless supporter of the Democratic Party and Democratic candidates. This was saluted in October when she was the recipient of a Kefauver Award in recognition of her years of service. Sandy will now bring her many skills to bear on the whole region, which is outstanding for the party in this part of the state.”
