Huntersville, NC– Huntersville Town Commissioner Dan Boone announced at the June 11th meeting of the North Mecklenburg Republican Women that he will be seeking re-election to a third term as Town Commissioner.
“When I first ran for Town Commissioner my campaign was built on the promise that I would be a new set of eyes examining the challenges Huntersville faces; someone who was focused on finding solutions and solving problems,” Boone stated when announcing his candidacy. “That’s exactly what I’ve done and what I will continue to do in my third term. Working together withour town board, our Mayor, our new Town Manager and town staff we’ve successfully changed, for the better, the way business is done and refocused our town government on solving the problems our citizens and businesses face daily. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished so far. However, as our town and the Lake Norman region continue to grow, there is much more to be done and many challenges to tackle. This is why I’m running again.”
“Over the last four years, we’ve made our town more citizen and business friendly by establishing the Huntersville Ordinance Advisory Board. This provides a place for our citizens and businesses to go to voice their concerns about the town’s regulations and ordinances. We have worked hard to make our town more fiscally responsible, saved hundreds of thousands in tax dollars by cutting unnecessary spending, focused on improving public safety through efforts such as building a much-needed new fire station, and worked to ease the traffic headaches faced by everyone in our town by adding over $550 million worth of road and infrastructure improvements. We’ve accomplished all of this without increasing taxes.”
“Huntersville is my home,” Boone concluded. “I love this town, its people, and itsproud history. I am honored to serve Huntersville as a Town Commissioner and I’m excited to continue working to ensure Huntersville’s future is as bright as its past. Ensuring our town is citizen and business friendly, improving public safety, addressing traffic concerns, increasing high quality educational opportunities for Huntersville families, and holding the line on taxes will always remain my top priorities for our town as your Town Commission.”
Boone, a retired businessman, has over 30 years of experience in the retail food industry having worked for Kraft Foods. This includes 10 years of extensive management experience. As a Town Commissioner, Boone serves on the Huntersville Ordinances Advisory Board (Boone was the first chair of the Board) and as the town’s Public Safety Liaison to the Fire and Police Departments. Boone also represents the town on the Laken Norman Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and represented Huntersville at the 2019 Ocular Melanoma Conference in Raleigh.

Known as strong supporter of law enforcement, Boone has been endorsed by the Police Benevolence Association during his previous two campaigns for Town Commissioner.
In addition to his service on the Town Commission, Boone is well known for his volunteer work. Over his 22 years in Huntersville, he has volunteered hundreds of hours in our community with many organizations including the Rotary Club of Lake Norman – Huntersville, Huntersville Police Department, North Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers, and Angels and Sparrows. One of his primary focuses has been preserving the history of Huntersville. This dedication is evidenced by serving as board member and treasurer of the Olde Huntersville Historical Society, chairperson for the restoration of the Arts and Cultural Center in Huntersville, and as a member of the Committee to Restore the Historic Huntersville Jail. These experiences have given Boone an exceptional understanding of the town and the issues facing it, and allowed him to develop relationships with citizens from all walks of life
