Strickland Ranked 11th Most Conservative Member of NC House
The Civitas Conservative Effectiveness Ranking is the only rating system in North Carolina that allows the citizens of North Carolina to gauge how effective their state legislator is in relation to Conservative-Liberal issues.
Civitas tracks and reports on a wide variety of issues before the North Carolina General Assembly, ranging from taxes and spending to social issues. Accordingly, the rankings encompass three general categories: (1) economic and budget matters; (2) social and cultural issues, and (3) crime and justice topics. Civitas analyzes votes from each category to obtain a balanced, comprehensive picture of each individual member based upon recorded votes.
