CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Today Former Representative Scott Stone submitted paperwork at the NC Board of Elections to be North Carolina’s next Lieutenant Governor. Stone, a Republican, served in the NC House from 2016-2018, representing South Mecklenburg County.
With a deep background in the engineering and construction field, and an extensive business background as a job creator, Scott Stone brings unique experience and insights to NC government. This allows him to ask the tough questions and hold government accountable on fiscal policies and budgeting.
“My experience both as a legislator and a business leader have prepared me to lead North Carolina as its next Lieutenant Governor,” said Stone. “As a business owner, I understand the regulatory and financial challenges facing job creators and bring that experience to state government.”
Stone’s campaign will continue to lead on key issues facing our state, including pushing North Carolina’s seven “Sanctuary Sheriffs” to cooperate with federal law enforcement and improving efficiency in state government. As Lieutenant Governor, Stone will focus on further reducing corporate and personal taxes, eliminating regulatory burdens for small business, continuing teacher pay raises, and improving transportation in our state.
