Stacy Phillips is serving her first term as commissioner. She was elected to office in November 2019.
Stacy has lived in Huntersville since the age of two. She is a graduate of Hopewell High School and received her Bachelor’s Degree in English at Appalachian State University. She runs Old Store Produce at the northern end of Beatties Ford Road, which has been owned by her family for many years adjacent to their farm near NC73 and Brown Mill Road.
Stacy is the founder of Connect Meck with Kindness, a Facebook group with over 1,700 members that aims to connect our homeless neighbors in Mecklenburg County with resources and support from the community. Connect Meck with Kindness strives to be a “one stop shop” to find events, groups to join with, and ways to donate items that are requested. In December 2018, Stacy was named a Hometown Hero by McIntosh Law Firm for her support of the homeless in our community for her efforts to start Connect Meck with Kindness (which only had 560 followers at the time) and specifically addressing needs for feminine hygiene and toiletries items at area homeless shelters through a “Galentine’s Day” event where women from the Lake Norman area donate such items address these needs of our local homeless neighbors.
Her support of the homeless is further evidenced by her membership of Hope Chapel and involvement with Watchmen of the Streets. Stacy has also been involved with Holly’z Hope, an LKN-based organization that seeks to partner with local families leaving their dogs outside on chains without financial means for fences and other dog wellness care and supplies.
