Sierra Club Action Endorses Wiley Nickel for NC Senate 16

Raleigh, N.C. – In a recent statement, Capital Group Sierra Club Action announced their proud endorsement of Wiley Nickel for North Carolina state Senate in District 16.  In the statement, the group stated, “The Sierra Club has endorsed your candidacy in the NC Senate race in appreciation of your demonstrated and planned commitment to protecting the environment… The Sierra Club is proud of its role in the endorsement process and wholeheartedly extends our support for your campaign to help elect you to public office.”

Nickel responded to the endorsement in a statement on social media, “As someone who worked for Vice President Al Gore for four years, protecting the environment is one of the core issues for my campaign for state Senate.  In the Senate I will work to protect our natural resources.  I will hold corporate polluters responsible for endangering our air, water and protected ecosystems.  Stopping climate change is the great challenge of our time and I will focus on making clean, renewable energy much more accessible and affordable for North Carolina families and businesses.  I will be proud to work hand in hand with the Capital Group Sierra Club to help protect our natural resources.”
