Hi! I am Elizabeth Parent, and I’m running for Commissioner of Fuquay-Varina. I’m running to serve you with a mindset for smart growth, to support housing affordability, and to advocate for federal & state funding for needed infrastructure advancements. I would appreciate your vote! My hope is that you and I will get the opportunity to get to know each other better, and you’ll consider how we might be able to work together to make Fuquay-Varina an even better place to live, work and raise our families.

Traffic. We all sit in it, so let’s tackle it together.
Fuquay-Varina relies on state and federal funding for most transportation projects. I believe there are collaboration strategies we can utilize to better influence elected officials in Raleigh & DC to fund projects further.
The lack of an affordable housing strategic plan is a problem.
Let’s build a plan and hold ourselves accountable for progress. Tiny Homes on Foundation (THOF) can offer quick and economic relief but requires city leaders to update city Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) ordinances. Let’s fix that.
Let’s be proactive about our future.
We can build the Fuquay-Varina that we know and love by preserving history & environment, fostering a connected & engaged community, and recruiting thriving local businesses. Let’s strategically build up, not out.
Elizabeth is a mom of three boys, a honey beekeeper, the wife of a US Army veteran, and a community advocate. She is the former Secretary of the Artists Alliance of the Triangle, former President of MOMs Club of FV-HS and a former candidate for NC House District 37. She also works part-time as a hostess at a fabulous breakfast restaurant in town.
“I was raised on a small family farm in a small rural town, Poulbso, Washington, similar in many ways to Fuquay-Varina. Having been raised in a large Christian homeschooling family, I understand and relate to a conservative point of view, however I have grown to hold the views of a progressive. I’m also a childhood sexual abuse survivor. That experience has made me a strong and relentless advocate for others.
I’m active at Fuquay-Varina town hall, having watched every town board meeting , online or in-person, since April 2020. Those who know me will tell you I’m not afraid to stand up to politicians who think they can bully members of our community and occasionally bend ethics rules. I’m ready to lead Fuquay-Varina with a Forward Vision for the future of our town.”
