Republican business leader and former NC Rep. Scott Stone announced today that he will run for the North Carolina Senate in 2022.
“I am ready to continue my service to the people of Mecklenburg County and North Carolina,” Stone said. “Our county needs a Republican in the North Carolina Senate to serve as our advocate. We currently have no voice within the majority party. We need a conservative business leader who is willing to fight for one of the fastest-growing areas of the state.”
Stone will bring his experience as a legislator and a business leader to the North Carolina Senate. He has grown his company from a two-person start-up to a multi-million-dollar operation, with three offices across the region. The firm has been recognized by ENR magazine as one of the largest engineering firms in the Southeast.
Stone knows the challenges and issues facing NC Senate District 41. The majority of his former NC House District was within the boundary of the new Senate district. He has lived there for more than 20 years. His two daughters attended CMS schools in the area – Ardrey Kell High School, JM Robinson Middle School and Polo Ridge Elementary & Providence Springs Elementary Schools.
The new District 41 includes Mint Hill, Matthews, and a large portion of south Charlotte – stretching from the Union County and South Carolina borders in the south to Fairview Road in the Southpark area to the north.
