Stone Starts Full Term in NC House

Scott Stone was sworn in as a member of the North Carolina House of Representatives this week following his November election. He continues the service that started last spring when he was appointed by Gov. McCrory to a vacancy. He represents District 105 of southern Mecklenburg County.

With a 74-member majority in the House, Republicans selected the Chamber’s leadership for the biennium session, including electing Speaker Tim Moore to another term. As most members were joined by family members for the day, Scott’s oldest daughter made the short trip from UNC Chapel Hill to be at her dad’s side.

Gov. Pat McCrory on Friday formally appointed Republican Scott Stone to the House seat that was vacated following last month’s resignation of Republican Rep. Jacqueline Schaffer.

Stone, a former Charlotte mayoral candidate, won the March 15 Republican primary in House District 105. He was chosen to fill the vacancy by party officials from the district.

Schaffer resigned to devote more time on business responsibilities.

Stone will be sworn in Monday night.

“It’s been a long time getting to this point,” he said. “There’s a lot of important business to do in these next few weeks.”

Stone, president of American Engineering, faces Democrat Connie Green-Johnson in November.
