Anthony Sutton

Waynesville City Council

Anthony will continue to be an important voice for equality on the Waynesville City Council!


My family has been part of the Haywood County community for generations. I work at Biltmore Farms where I am the Director of Information Systems. I have worked for them for 24 years. I currently serve as the Chair of the French Broad River MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization) and am on the Prioritization Subcommittee. I am the previous chair of the Haywood Healthcare Foundation, which was instrumental in building the new Health & Human Services building at Haywood Community College. I served on the Town of Waynesville Planning Board for 4 years prior to being elected to Town Council. I am also a previous board member for REACH of Haywood, which is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides aid to victims-survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, elder abuse, and human trafficking. I am an alumnus of the Duke University Leadership Program, which is a program that brings people of different political backgrounds together to discuss solutions to difficult issues. I am proud to be the first out member of the LGBTQ community elected to the Board. I am the only member of the LGBTQ community serving as an elected official west of Buncombe County in Western North Carolina.
