A Democratic View of the November Election

The Athenaeum is please to present the vice chair of
the Democratic National Committee, Lynn Cutler.
Ms. Cutler will speak on the upcoming 1990 elections
and give her thoughts about how the results might
affect the Democratic party.

As vice chair. Cutler acts as the DNC liaison to
statewide and county-elected officials. In her nine years
in office, she has worked with these officials to build
what she terms a strong "intergovernmental partnership" within the Democratic party. As a former county
supervisor in Iowa, Cutler has special insights about the
difficulties facing her party's local officials.

In 1977 President Carter appointed Cutler to the U.S.
Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations,
and in 1978 she became vice chair. Since the beginning
of her career. Cutler has been particularly active in
national party fundraising, as well as in promoting
political activism among students and women.

Vice Chair Cutler's honors are numerous. They
include recognition as one of the "Outstanding Women
in America," and recently Washingtonian Magazine cited
Cutler as one of "Washington's 100 Most Powerful

Ms. Cutler's speech will be preceded by a 5:30
reception and 6:00 dinner. To join us for this event,
