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 dedicated public servants who can partner with residents 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 that voice and building a coalition to help our communities thrive.
My ability to make well-informed decisions is grounded in my experience as an executive coalition builder. Working with residents, non-profits, businesses, and other stakeholders taught me the importance of listening, collaborating, and finding common ground. As a result of past and previous leadership, I will continue to positively impact District 6 by bringing people together to tackle the challenges we face.
By working together, we can create a better future for all residents of Charlotte. As your public servant, 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.
I Know That I Can Count On Your Vote!
