Representative Scott Stone currently represents southern Mecklenburg County in the North Carolina House of Representatives – District 105. Our District drives North Carolina’s economy and is one of the fastest growing areas in the state.
Stretching from Pineville and along I-485 in South Charlotte, we are the home to:
- Over 7M sf of office space in one of the Southeastern United States’ most high profile business centers, anchored by Ballantyne Corporate Park
- Numerous Fortune 1000 corporate and regional headquarters
- Over 1M sf of retail including Carolina Place Mall, Stonecrest, Blakeney, Promenade, Ballantyne, Plantation Market, and Waverly
As one of the fastest growing areas in the state, we are tremendously impacted by North Carolina tax policy, transportation planning, and education investment. As a driver of the city and state’s economy, the South Charlotte area’s growth cannot be ignored. As we continue to see increases in congestion on our roads and crowding in our classrooms, Scott will fight to ensure that a reasonable share of the state’s investment is spent in its fastest growing location.
Top ranked high schools Ardrey Kell and Charlotte Latin School sit within the boundary of NC District 105. In addition, many of the neighborhoods along the east side of the district are assigned to Providence High School. Scott will fight for state education policy which helps ensure that our local school boards focus student assignment plans on geography over politically driven issues, such as diversity. Scott will fight to keep CMS’ crown jewels – Ardrey Kell and Providence – as exceptional neighborhood schools. He will also fight to ensure that all parents, across Charlotte and North Carolina, have a choice in education for their children. Every student is different, and whether the choice is public, private, charter, or home school, parents know what is best for their children. Scott will always put the student first as he helps lead North Carolina educational policy.
