Morrisville councilman resigns, saying he has been harassed and bullied

MORRISVILLE -- Morrisville Councilman Jerry Windle has resigned midway through his four-year term, announcing in a lengthy statement at Town Hall that he feels harassed and bullied.

Elected in 2017, Windle won praise from Equality NC as one of several gay candidates chosen in municipal elections across North Carolina.

But he found a contentious environment while serving on the council, especially surrounding the Crabtree Crossing Extension project, a perceived threat to Morrisville neighborhoods, particularly the Preston development. In October, the council voted 4-3 against the project, which Windle had supported.

Opponents of the project say Windle targeted them on social media.
