Scott Stone

Who will be Charlotte's next mayor?

Charlotte mayoral candidates

The candidates running for mayor in Charlotte are campaigning hard and so far only one has gone negative with a push poll. Jennifer Roberts conducted a poll with negative, leading questions about the other Democrats in the race. According to the Charlotte Observer, her team claims it isn't a push poll because it isn't close enough to the September primary, and it isn't a large enough sample.

Charlotte Mayoral Candidate Scott Stone Fails Competency Test

A charity fund run by Scott Stone, Republican candidate for mayor in Charlotte, is receiving some unwanted attention for the low percentage of fundraising dollars passing through to the supported cause. According to available tax returns, North Carolina Heroes Fund (NCHF) has raised $168,807.73 and distributed $39,210.37 to veterans in need. This means only 23% of funds raised has passed through to help veterans, not the 30% stated by the Charlotte Observer. In contrast, $41,542.48 has gone to one professional fundraiser in 2009 and well over $40,000 in unitemized expenses have been incurred. This leaves Scott Stone's financial competence wide open for criticism.
