Republican Scott Stone Announces Candidacy for Charlotte Mayor

By Jim Morrill / Charlotte Observer – March 7, 2011

Charlotte Republican Scott Stone today became the first announced candidate for mayor, saying “We need to turn our economy around.”

Stone hopes to face Democratic Mayor Anthony Foxx, who’s expected to announce his own re-election campaign at a Thursday fundraiser.

Stone, 42, is a vice president of Merrick & Co., a Colorado-based engineering and architectural firm.

Foxx won his first term in 2009 after beating Republican John Lassiter in Charlotte’s most expensive mayoral race.
