Rep. Scott Stone, who represents parts of south Charlotte and Pineville in Mecklenburg County, confirmed that he will seek reelection in 2018.
“During the past two years, I have been proud to work on behalf of the people of North Carolina to continue to move our state forward,” said Stone. “We still have important work to do to ensure that North Carolina is well positioned for economic opportunities during the next few years, while continuing to enhance the quality of life of all of our citizens.”
Stone serves on several key committees which are important to Mecklenburg County including: Transportation, Education K-12, Energy & Public Utilities, Finance, Banking, Environment, and Alcoholic Beverage Control. During the 2017 Session, he was the primary sponsor of a variety of primary pieces of legislation including some for which he served as the lead author. During the “Long Session” he cast 937 recorded votes which included everything from the budget, education reforms, transportation initiatives, and healthcare policy.
The legislative maps which will dictate the districts from which all members of the General Assembly will be elected are still being decided by the Courts. It is expected that final decisions on maps will come within the next few weeks as filing for the 2018 elections begin in February.
