Elizabeth Parent

Fuquay Varina Commissioner

Elizabeth will be the first out LGBTQ+ person elected in Fuquay-Varina!


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.”
