I am proud that in this election our efforts are being endorsed by such amazing groups as:
- NARAL NC
The endorsements I am receiving represent more than the individual organizations that I’m proud to be endorsed by. They represent their supporters. As I continue to receive endorsements from organizations I have been proud to support, their support is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. November 8th is not about me, it’s about us. I look forward to working for the people of HD 36 and the organizations who have entrusted me with their knowledge that I will fight for their supporters. Thank you http://www.prochoicenc.org/ for your work for the women of North Carolina and your support in me.
- Indy Week and The News & Observer
“As a chairman of the House Appropriations Committee since 2011, Republican Nelson Dollar has been directly responsible for deep cuts to education and public services. Last year’s budget, which gave teachers raises, shouldn’t be looked at as anything more than an election year gimmick.
His opponent, Democrat Jen Ferrell, has been fighting against those cuts for years, even getting arrested in a Moral Monday protest back in 2013. Ferrell was endorsed by the N.C. Association of Educators and has made education a focal point of her campaign. This isn’t a hard decision: Ferrell gets our vote.”
“Incumbent Nelson Dollar, 55, is a Republican first elected from this Cary and southwest Wake County district in 2004. A public relations consultant, Dollar has risen during the Republicans’ rule on Jones Street to an influential position as a budget writer. While not as bombastic on social issues as some of his GOP mates, Dollar has stayed true to the right wing of his party.
Dollar has a strong opponent in Democrat Jen Ferrell, 38, a native of Northern Virginia and an advocate for public education. Ferrell is not letting the soft-spoken Dollar off the hook for his record. He voted for HB2, for vouchers (public money for private education) and, she says, “votes with his (GOP) caucus every time.”
Ferrell wants more investment in public schools, a repeal of HB2, no more secrecy on the state budget Dollar helps to write. She’d be a breath of fresh, progressive air in this district, and thus The N&O editorial board endorses her.”
- NC NOW (National Organization for Women)
Thank you to a strong leader for all women, NC NOW (National Organization for Women) for your endorsement of my NC36 candidacy!

- Human Rights Campaign
As we witness the harm that exclusion politics is doing to the heart and economy of North Carolina, receiving the endorsement from Human Rights Campaign is a moment of pride and honor. I will fight for good policies for all in NC. #WeAreNotThis Thank you Human Rights Campaign
- North Carolina Association of Educators
I am honored to receive the endorsement of the North Carolina Association of Educators, the voice of educators and public school employees in our state. I was raised in quality public schools which remain near and dear to my heart and as a legislator I will continue to speak up and listen to our educators, students and parents in our community. While parents should be able to choose how their children are educated, we must value equal access to those choices and to quality public education that is adequately and equitably funded. http://www.ncae.org/
- Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic
Thank you Planned Parenthood Votes South Atlantic for endorsing our campaign in the 2016 General Election! Women’s personal health decisions should not be up for debate in Raleigh by our state legislators. If and when the attacks on safe and legal access to care in the future arise, I will stand up to preserve a woman’s right to make those decisions.
- NC League of Conservation Voters Endorsement
It is an honor to receive the endorsement of the NC League of Conservation Voters this year! Constituents in NC36 and statewide can trust and rely on on me to stand up for North Carolina’s proud conservation traditions. Clean air and water is a bi-partisan issue for all of our families and I will continue to approach policy discussions in this manner.
