Thanks Jonathan Jordan and Dan Soucek

In 2010 the voters of Watauga County elected nearly a 100% slate of Republicans to office. A conservative county with a liberal university population in it's center - Watauga was represented at the state level by two liberal Democrats...each of whom earned their "F" grades on the Civitas conservative scale. We are now represented by two conservatives - more reflective of the permanent population of the county.

The recent Civitas Conservative rankings of our State Senator and our State Representative have both of them solidly in the Conservative column! While Watauga Conservatives might not agree with EVERY vote cast by either of these gentlemen, they have certainly lived up to their campaign promises of bringing fiscal responsibility and conservative principals to Raleigh.

Soucek's "A" rating and Jordan's "A-" show that they are  voting consistent with the intent of the voters who sent them there!

Thanks Senator Soucek! Thanks Representative Jordan! You are BOTH appreciated!

Changes to the Castle Doctrine - another reason to thank Jordan and Soucek! Good article in Jefferson Post:

"The law says, if the presumption applies, the person is immune from civil or criminal liability for the use of force against anyone except a law enforcement officer or bail bondsman in the performance of their duties. The law also presumes that a person who unlawfully and, by force, enters or attempts to enter a person’s home, motor vehicle, or workplace is doing so with the intent to commit an unlawful act involving force or violence. The lawful occupant is not required to retreat prior to using deadly force."
