STANLEY––It was a big night recently for the charming community of Stanley and its government.

Stanley’s newest town council members, Victoria Kiser and Jimmy Ingold, were sworn in at the council’s Dec. 2 meeting at Stanley Middle School. Councilman Bud Pate received a congratulatory handshake from Mayor Steven Denton. Both men were recently re-elected. And outgoing councilman Danny Sparrow received a plaque from Denton in recognition of his eight years of service to the council.

Denton’s new term at the helm of the Town of Stanley will now be for four years, as he told The Herald on Tuesday.

“It was an honor to be re-elected as mayor,” he said, adding, “I want to focus on bringing the right type of growth to the town. We are starting to see new residential developments and businesses coming to Stanley. Also, we plan to start a number of capital projects in our downtown area in 2020. I’m excited about what can be accomplished over the next four years!” 

More about Stanley
Nestled in the northeastern corner of Gaston County, Stanley is known as “a friendly place.”

That’s what it says on the signs along NC-27 that welcome you into town. And that’s what you’ll find, walking along Stanley’s sidewalks or shopping at the Food Lion or Dollar General or eating at nearby Billy’s Barbecue: lots of smiling faces on friendly folks who are ready to help you.

A town of some 5,000 residents and just less than three square miles, Stanley is known for its annual Countryfest. The outdoor festival is held downtown every October.

And Stanley is also the home of the late Ted Abernathy. The famed baseball great was a pitcher for the Chicago Cubs more than 50 years ago. Abernathy also played for the Cleveland Indians, Atlanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals and other teams.
