I heartily endorse TJ Cawley’s candidacy for Mayor of Morrisville. TJ demonstrates the qualities valuable in a mayor: dedication to his community, responsibility for his citizens’ well-being, and energy for improving Morrisville. Over the past year TJ has come to Raleigh to advocate on behalf of the citizens of Morrisville on a number of issues coming before the legislature. Most recently TJ’s advocacy in his role on the North Carolina League of Municipalities Planning & Environment Legislative Action Committee contributed to the passage of HB 436 which will ensure adequate water infrastructure for our region for years to come. TJ’s optimism, fairmindedness, and determination reflect the values of Morrisville’s citizens. TJ is a hard working public servant of integrity who is committed to Morrisville reaching its full potential.

TJ has an excellent balance of diverse qualifications from which to draw. He has done an excellent job as a council member and I can assure you that he will bring that same  commitment to Morrisville as our Mayor for which we are lacking over the past four years.

TJ Cawley is the “people’s council member.” Ever mindful of citizens’ wants and community needs, he has been the lone voice of town leadership in preserving the small town values we cherish and future of controlled growth we seek. He has proven to be independent, attuned to the majority of Morrisville residents, and the strong voice of opposition to damaging council proposals. To silence his stand for common sense, the current mayor and his “yes men” on the council have maneuvered to remove Cawley’s seat on the town board for the next term. It is not only imperative that TJ continue his representation on the council, but he be assigned the major responsibility in guiding the current management of our town and its critical planning for the future. Morrisville needs TJ Cawley as Mayor!
