Delegate Landes' Receives American Conservative Union's Award for Conservative Achievement


ACU researched and selected a range of bills before the Virginia General Assembly that determine a member’s adherence to conservative principles.  

WASHINGTON, DC – The American Conservative Union (ACU) announced the results of its ratings from the 2017 meeting of the Virginia General Assembly. ACU researches and selects a wide range of bills that reflect a member's adherence to conservative principles, whether they be economic, social, cultural, or government integrity. Legislators who score above 80% in each state receive awards for their commitment to conservative principles. The scores have been specifically designed to convey to voters the most accurate assessment of Virginia’s elected officials who voted with the ideals articulated in the U.S. Constitution.

Landes received an 89% rating for the 2017 General Assembly Session and holds a lifetime ACU rating of 87%. “I am honored to be acknowledged with the 2017 Award for Conservative Achievement from the American Conservative Union,” stated Landes. “The ACU is a leading proponent of the conservative, constitutional principles that guide my voting and view of the proper role of government. I appreciate their recognition of my work in the General Assembly, as well as the ACU’s advocacy for our shared beliefs. I’ll continue my efforts to keep the Commonwealth on a path of fiscal responsibility and prosperity, while remaining loyal to the Virginia and United States Constitutions.”

Legislators who scored above 80% in ACU’s 2017 Ratings of the Virginia General Assembly will receive awards for their hard work toward passage of legislation that reflects conservative principles. “The American Conservative Union Foundation is proud to present our ratings of the 2017 meeting of the Virginia General Assembly,” said ACU Chairman, Matt Schlapp. “It is our hope that these ratings will serve as a guide showing who can be relied on to fight for conservative principles and restore the role of government to what our nation’s founding fathers envisioned.”
