North Carolina state Rep. Lisa Stone Barnes is hosting a breakfast meet-and-greet with voters on Feb. 11 at Gotham’s Deli in Smithfield.
The two-hour event kicks off at 8 a.m. and comes just over three weeks before voters go to the polls to cast ballots in a Republican primary where Stone Barnes is facing off against challengers Patrick Harris and Dennis Nielsen in her run for the state Senate seat in the 11th District.
Barnes insists she is looking forward to getting to know more of the people she hopes to soon represent across Johnston and Nash counties.
“The most rewarding part about the campaign trail is meeting the people I hope to serve,” she said in a post to Facebook. “I would love the opportunity to learn more about what matters to you and ways we can work together to provide North Carolina with proven, conservative leadership.”
Stone Barnes is on record in asserting she believes her strong business background and roots in agriculture are just what the state needs now in growing the economy.
“From my first election as a Nash County Commissioner, to serving in the North Carolina House, I have worked hard to meet the dynamic needs of my constituents and I am excited to take that same work ethic and dedication to the North Carolina Senate.”
