Matlock Votes No

While it seems that most all of our federal and state and many of our local politicians are doing everything in their power to throw away our hard earned tax dollars, it's nice to find at least one elected official who still stands for his conservative principles and represents his constituents

Our State Representative, Jimmy Matlock, was one of only a dozen elected state officials who voted no on the 2009-2010 state budget. While other law makers were making deals and compromising their values and voting for a budget full of pork, Matlock stayed fast.

I appreciate Mr. Matlock's position and only wish we had more elected officials like him.
