Morrisville, NC- Morrisville City Council Member Jerry Windle endorses Wiley Nickle for North Senate District 16.

Here is Council Member Windle’s full endorsement statement: “I’m very proud to endorse Wiley Nickel for the North Carolina State Senate in the 16th District. In the Senate, Wiley will work hard to support a strong community school system for Western Wake County- one of my passions. He will fight to protect our environment and supports a true commitment to renewable energy. Wiley understands that diversity is a strength and is passionate about making North Carolina an inclusive state, where everyone feels welcome and secure. North Carolina was once a progressive leader in the South — I am confident that with Wiley Nickel in the State Senate, we will move one step closer to being a leader once again on these important issues. The newly created 16th District covers Cary, Morrisville and NW Raleigh. This is an important election, we need to show all of NC that we get out the vote. I encourage you to join me in voting for Wiley Nickel in the Democratic primary on May 8th.”

In response to this most recent endorsement, Wiley Nickel said, “I’m excited to have the endorsement of Council Member Jerry Windle.
