SALISBURY — Former Salisbury Mayor Susan Kluttz will serve as the new secretary of cultural resources in Gov.-elect Pat McCrory’s cabinet.

Kluttz, a Democrat and currently the city’s mayor pro tem, is a longtime supporter of McCrory, who graduated from Catawba College. She served on his transition team to make recommendations about the Department of Cultural Resources, which oversees the troubled N.C. Transportation Museum in Spencer.


Mayor Paul Woodson said he will meet with Kluttz next week regarding her position on the City Council and at that time will release an additional statement.

“We are so delighted and proud that former Mayor Susan Kluttz has been appointed to the cabinet position of Secretary of Cultural Resources by Governor Pat McCrory,” Woodson said in a statement. “We will take this day to celebrate the admirable tenure former Mayor Kluttz devoted to our community.

“We wish the newly appointed Secretary Kluttz the very best as she transitions to leading a critically important department in state government. The State of North Carolina has gained an outstanding leader and the City of Salisbury will greatly miss her wisdom and leadership.”
