CHARLOTTE — A chili cook-off in south Charlotte was the perfect spot for some campaigning Saturday.
The Ballantyne Breakfast Club, the Morrison Family YMCA and the Ballantyne Chamber of Commerce sponsored the day so voters could meet with candidates in an informal setting.
Mayor Foxx said he talked to voters about his work over his first term.
"A lot of positive responses from people about some of the work we've been able to help push over the last couple of years. Pushing to get 485 widened, before it was supposed to get started, which we've been able to help get done. The crime rate is at a 30-year low in the city and that's also something that's meaningful to people out here,” said Foxx.
“I'm going to stand with them. I'm going to stand for Charlotte first not for national interests. I'm going to stand with our job creators, I'm going to get us more competitive. I'm going to keep unions from coming to Charlotte and I'm on their side, said Charlotte mayoral candidate Scott Stone.
Election Day is Nov. 8.
