REPRESENTATIVE JONATHAN JORDAN NC House District 93 Deputy Majority Whip
Jonathan Jordan was sworn in as our new NC Representative on Sunday, January 23, 2011. Welcoming remarks were made by NC Representative Dale Folwell, Speaker pro tempore (Forsyth). Rep. Folwell announced that Jonathan's peers had elected him Deputy Majority Whip; quite an honor for a first-term representative! The Oath of Office was administered by 23rd District Court Judge David V. Byrd. Rep. Jordan pledged that citizens "from Blowing Rock to Lansing" would be represented well. He stressed the importance of placing "necessities over niceties" as the General Assembly deals with the state's indebtedness. Jonathan read from Matthew 20:25-28, the passage in which Christ stated he did not come to be served but to serve. Rep. Jordan pledged to be that type of public servant, and asked for his constituents' prayers, support, and input. (From WCRP-E-news.
