Democrat Wiley Nickel is a practicing attorney in Cary, NC where he lives with his wife Caroline and their two children. Before opening his law practice, Wiley worked for the White House travelling with President Barack Obama in the United States and abroad. He also travelled with Vice President Al Gore during the Clinton/Gore White House.
Wiley understands the value of public service, as a former prosecutor he has helped pursue justice for those in need. As a local attorney he works every day to see that his clients are treated fairly and compassionately by the North Carolina justice system.
Wiley is running for the State Senate because he believes it's time for our legislators to solve real problems instead of passing an extreme partisan agenda. When Wiley is elected to the Senate he will be one more vote towards ending the Republican super majority that is fighting Governor Cooper at every turn.
Wiley is a Progressive Democrat and believes it's time to focus on strengthening our public schools, creating high paying jobs, expanding access to affordable healthcare and protecting our environment. Wiley will lead the fight to protect a woman's right to chose, push for stronger gun control laws and implement independent redistricting reform that takes the power to draw new legislative districts out of the hands of politicians.
