Women’s History Month: Highlighting Wicomico CO. Council Woman and her advice to young girls
WICOMICO COUNTY, Md.- In honor of women’s history month, 47 ABC had the opportunity to speak with the only woman serving on the Wicomico County Council, Nicole Acle.
Nicole Acle was appointed to the council in 2019 to represent District 2 and won re-election in 2020.
She said being involved in civic organizations brought her to government because she wanted to make positive changes in her communities.
Now serving on the Council, she believes she brings a different perspective because she is a wife, a mother, and a business owner.
She said being in this leadership role she thinks she can show woman they can achieve their goals, whatever it may be.
And for the next generation of females leaders, she has this advice.
“There are obstacles to everything, I think you need to, women need to figure out a way to move past those obstacles, move around those obstacles, you can’t let those things hold you back from what you want to do and that’s back to building your network, building a strong base, having other leaders mentor you, and getting where you need to go, but there are no obstacles my dear you could be president,” Nicole Acle, (R) Wicomico CO. Council, Dist. 2, said.
Acle said being on the Council she has found that she’s a very good communicator, she tries to listen to the citizens and what they are facing.
She added that continuing on her journey she wants to focus on rural broadband, equitable education, and advocating for farmers.
