Clean Up Corruption in Watauga

A recent article by Winston Salem Journal reporter Bert Gutierrez has uncovered major unethical and corrupt behavior by County Attorney Stacy "Four" Eggers. It has came to light that Eggers has authored all of the controversial resolutions passed by the Watauga County Board of Elections including the proposal to combine 3 precincts into one Super Precinct, the resolution to eliminate early voting on ASU's campus, and decision to move ASU's polling location to the BYOB nightclub, windowless, flood prone building, "Legends."

When asked if Luke wrote any of the resolutions, Four Eggers responded "You’d have to ask him about that." Even Josh Howard, the Republican Chair of the State Board of Elections said of Four Eggers serving on the Board of Elections "I don’t think he can do both jobs because the county attorney often has to advise the county board of elections."

This is not acceptable for the voters of Watauga County and we're calling on Nathan Miller, Chair of the Watauga County Commission to ask for Four's resignation as County Attorney. In addition we're asking the local Board of Elections to rescind all resolutions written by Four Eggers and to hold a full public hearing to restore confidence in our democracy in Watauga County. 

Will you help echo the voice of thousands of voters who want the corruption and nepotism in Watauga County to end today? Sign our petition and stand up for your rights!
