Lori Bush

Cary Town Council Member

“If you look up the definition of public servant, there has to be a picture of Gale Adcock there.  She's been a Cary champion since before her time on our Council, continued to support our citizens while in the NC House, and will be our advocate in the N.C. senate. There is no one better to serve our Cary community than Gale.”

Wake County Commissioner

“When we chose Wake County, we made sure that we moved into a community that had representatives who shared our values. Gale Adcock is one of the reasons why we live in Cary. From the Cary Town Council to the NC House, she has been an exceptional leader making Cary, Wake County and North Carolina a wonderful place to live, work and grow. I wholeheartedly support Gale Adcock's campaign, and am excited about her representing us in the NC Senate.”

“Gale is an exceptional representative for the people. She is always curious and open to a conversation. We get together over coffee & she truly listens to my perspectives & concerns. I learn something new every time we talk. She has set the bar for everyone who runs for office. This is how representation was meant to be.”

Cary Town Council Member

Don Frantz

“There are really only two reasons people run for public office - they either want to be important or they want to do important things. Gale is the latter. She doesn't care about TV cameras; she cares about us. Having served with Gale on the Cary Town Council and collaborated with her as a member of the NC House, I know how hard she works to make our community a better place for everyone, and I am positive she will continue to do the same as a member of the NC Senate.”

Gale is a problem solver and is inclusive of all stakeholders in making a difference in our everyday lives. She values and understands the diversity and cultures of our region.

“It is my honor and privilege to endorse Gale Adcock to represent me and our citizens in NC Senate District 16. As my friend for many years, I know her personal values as well as her long-time professional experience that qualified her for the seat in the NC House of Representatives. When she began her first term in the NC General Assembly, she established herself as an impartial representative not only for her district, but for all of Wake County and the state. Although she did not represent my district at the time, I have supported her financially and have opened my home to her campaign through the years. Now that she is a candidate for the NC Senate, I proudly support Gale Adcock for MY STATE SENATOR.”

Former Wake County

Commissioner

Erv Portman

"I was part of a small group that recruited Gale Adcock to enter public service in 2007. She was smart, pragmatic, and respected as a Nurse Practitioner and Chief Health Officer at SAS. We served together on the Cary Town Council and I saw firsthand how effectively she could bring thoughtful leadership to finding common ground. Since then I have watched her do the same in the state House. In a place known for division, Gale finds the way to get it done, uniting not dividing. She is a proven leader who will serve us well in the Senate."

Cary Mayor

Weinbrecht

“I am so excited to support Representative Gale Adcock for the NC Senate. The entire Cary Town Council supported Gale in her first run for the NC House and we are so proud of what she has accomplished and how she has represented us. Her many years as Mayor Pro-Tem of Cary proved that she was a leader’s leader and had the knowledge and know-how to get things done. Our community has been so fortunate to have someone who understands that helping people is far more important than a political agenda. Someone who is so attuned to people’s needs that she has been the go-to person not only for our citizens, but for our town council, our town staff, and our businesses. There is no doubt in my mind that with Gale’s experience and knowledge, she will be the ideal leader to represent us in the NC Senate.”

Beth Wood

North Carolina State Auditor

"I am excited to, once again, endorse Gale Adcock to serve in the North Carolina General Assembly. I am even more excited that she has chosen to run for a seat in the NC Senate! 

As the State Auditor of North Carolina, I have had many opportunities to watch Gale in action. As a member of the House of Representatives, even as a freshman, Gale proved to be an effective legislator getting bipartisan bills that would serve all North Carolinians. Gale's effectiveness as a legislator has been a direct result of her ability to work with both parties.

Additionally, through her work on legislative committees, I have witnessed Gale holding state agencies accountable for how they spend taxpayer dollars. 

Gale's common sense, pragmatic approach while working across party lines to serve the citizens of North Carolina will be a huge addition to the North Carolina Senate. 

I am proud to endorse Gale Adcock, candidate for the North Carolina Senate."
