Jonathan Jordan Dumping His House Seat for Something More Lucrative?

There have been persistent rumors that the Ashe County Commission recently fired their county manager in order to hire current NC House member Jonathan Jordan. Those rumors just broke out into the open.

When asked directly whether he would be applying for the manager's job, Jonathan Jordan gave what must go down in the annals as one of the most inartful non-denial denials we've ever heard: “I really don’t know what I’m going to do.”

Yes he does.

GA jobs are in theory part-time. Many lawyers contrive to practice while serving in the legislature. But if a state House member served in 2 governmental posts where his duties overlapped it would surely creat a conflict of interest. The NC legal structure requires enabling legislation for so many county initiatives, I can't imagine how often a county manager serving in the Legislature would have to recuse himself on votes. If Ashe Co. hires him he should step down from his GA seat.
