Johnston County Commission Candidate Discusses Managing Growth and Infrastructure

Bill Stovall joins the Best of Johnston County Podcast this week to discuss his background and vision if elected as a Johnston County Commissioner. Bill Stovall is running in the Republican primary on March 5th for the District 6 seat, which covers parts of Cleveland, Princeton, Pine Level, and more.

Bill has an extensive background in infrastructure and development. For over 30 years, he served in various executive leadership roles with the NC Department of Corrections and NC Department of Public Safety. He helped build new prisons across North Carolina and oversaw infrastructure improvements. Since retiring in 2017, Stovall has remained actively involved in Johnston County through volunteering and serving on local boards.

On the podcast, Bill shares what he loves most about Johnston County – the people and small town feel even amidst tremendous growth. Stovall believes the recently approved county land use plan will help manage development moving forward. He explains the need to attract more commercial projects to balance the tax base funding schools, emergency services, and other county expenses.

If elected, Bill Stoval wants to conduct a formal cost analysis on how different types of development impact Johnston County’s budget and services. He would focus utility capacity on business projects first to create more local jobs. Stovall also discusses creative funding solutions for large capital investments like the proposed Cleveland Community Park.
