Senator Eddie Settle

Represents Alexander, Surry, Wilkes, Yadkin

A native of Wilkes County, Eddie Settle learned at an early age about business.  Upon graduation from East Wilkes High School in 1978, he began attending Wilkes Community College, majoring in Business.  In 1979, Eddie went into the family business that his dad started in 1970, Nu-Line Printing, Inc.  As a side venture, Eddie started Settle Cattle Company in 1990.  In 1994, Eddie bought Nu-Line Printing, Inc. from his father.  He continues operating both the printing and cattle companies today.

Eddie was elected to represent Wilkes County on its Board of County Commissioners in 2012, and he has been serving consecutive terms since.  He has served four years as Chairman and three years as Vice Chairman of the Board.

Eddie believes that the family unit is the building block of society.  Many societal ills can be traced to the erosion of the family.  Eddie serves on the Wilkes County Board of Social Services, and he advocates strongly for children and families.  He is also pro-life. All human life deserves dignity, no matter the stage.

With faith at the core of who he is, Eddie and his family attend Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church, where he has been a Deacon for over 13 years.  He also helps with Operation Christmas Child that Samaritan’s Purse conducts each year.
