Working HAND in Hand for a Stronger Charlotte


Hello, I am Stephanie Hand, your candidate for Charlotte City Council, District 6. 

          I will count on your vote!

As one of the fastest growing cities in America, Charlotte, NC, deserves a dedicated public leader who can partner with residents of District 6 and be their voice in the community and local government. As a resident and candidate running for Charlotte City Council, I am committed to being a voice for the people, building a coalition to help our communities thrive.  

As a leader, I will make well-informed decisions grounded in my experience as an executive coalition builder in the airport industry.. Working with residents, non-profits, businesses, and other stakeholders taught me the importance of listening and collaborating to find common ground to move us. As a result of successes in past and previous leadership roles, I will continue to positively impact District 6 by bringing people together to tackle the challenges we face and celebrate our accomplishments..

Working together, we can create a better future for all residents of Charlotte. As a leader, I will serve the needs of our communities and will be accessible and responsive to your concerns. Working together, Hand in hand, for a stronger District 6.

The essence of service to others was ingrained in me at a young age through my father's ultimate sacrifice. As a Marine, he died in combat while saving his platoon in battle. This family life experience taught me the value of service and dedication to a greater cause.

As a former executive Operations Manager and General Manager in the airport industry, I have extensive experience leading large organizations. Managing over 500 employees and 40 Joint Venture Partners, I honed my leadership skills and developed a deep understanding of the importance of teamwork and collaboration with diverse leaders


I Know That I Can Count On Your Vote!

Through my work with civic and non-profit organizations and my current role as a United Methodist Clergy, I have witnessed firsthand the power of thriving communities working together. Friends, we can achieve our citywide goals by working with non-profits, businesses, philanthropic organizations, faith groups, and with you, the citizens of Charlotte.

Through strategic partnerships, we can build a more robust economy, safer communities, and more Workforce housing that's affordable for teachers, police, fire personnel, and others in District 6, while also working towards a more interconnected transportation system that benefits our growing city, and slows pollutants in the air.


With your help, I am committed to working hand in hand towards a better District 6 and a stronger Charlotte. Together, we can make a positive impact in our communities and beyond.
