This campaign year has taken some surprising turns, but it's now Election Day!
I'm asking for you to write in my name for Senate District 1 so that I can continue to serve you in the General Assembly. These are very challenging times for our Country, our Commonwealth, and our communities, and many have said my decade of experience leading on difficult policy issues is still needed in Richmond. The Shenandoah Valley is conservative Republican, and deserves a conservative Republican leader. I hope you will get out on this beautiful day and vote for me, and also encourage your friends and family in Clarke, Frederick, Shenandoah, and Warren Counties and the City of Winchester to do the same.
Polls are open until 7pm. A full list of polling locations in the 1st Senate District is on my website here. Feel free to call us at 540-751-8364 with any questions.
Thank you again for your prayers and support!
We need a Senator with deeply held convictions, and a track record defending businesses & families from rising energy costs.
Dominion Energy wants Dave LaRock out... Dominion wants Timmy French in so they can keep raising your electric bills.
CONSIDER THIS A WARNING- Your area is served by Dominion Energy:
ATTENTION- Toms Brook, Mauertown, Alonzaville, St. Luke, Calvary, Columbia Furnace, Willow Grove, Edinburg, Bowman’s Crossing, Hawkinstown, Basye, Orkney Springs, Forestville, Quicksburg, Williamsville, Alpine, Timberville, Woodstock, Edinburg, Mt. Jackson, New Market, and Alpine.
The Timmy French campaign disclosed Monday that they have accepted $12,500 Special Interest Cash from Dominion Energy since the June 20 Primary!
Fact: Timmy French is breaking his campaign promises already!
Dominion Energy buys politicians and candidates like Timmy who will sell out their people for campaign cash.
WHEN IT COMES TO DEFENDING GUN RIGHTS, TIMMY FRENCH IS NOT ONE OF US.
I’ll get straight to the point.
I hope you know my track record on gun rights - if not scroll down or go here.
Please read far enough to learn why I make these statements.
- Timmy French is NOT a conservative and he is favored to win and serve Senate District 1 in Richmond. He cheated in the Primary- Go here to learn more
- Timmy French, in his own words, in a candidate forum in Edinburg, made it 100% clear that he cannot be trusted with our gun rights.
Not everyone will get the significance of what Timmy French disclosed. I hope enough voters do before the election on November 7th.
Watch and listen to Timmy French on Gun Rights at a recent forum in Shenandoah County (see 1:13:58)
Timmy French never misses an opportunity to talk about his dirty boots and agriculture.
Never once has Timmy mentioned what he will do about protecting babies, not even the ones who survive botched abortions or are the victims of late-term abortions.
Both issues have been at the center of my legislative efforts in Virginia.
Timmy French has NOT shown voters a shred of evidence that he has engaged on any of the most pressing issues that the people of this Senate District face.
A question voters should be focusing on is this:
Is someone who has been entirely absent from public service ready to tackle the complex challenges facing our Commonwealth as a lawmaker?
My impression of Timmy French is that he is a hard working farmer, and I respect that. If we had a beer together, I would have more questions about agriculture for him than we would have time for. If he was interested I’d tell him a few of my favorite stories about building things. I hope that we have those conversations soon.
It is a little surprising that none of the men who ran for this Senate seat have ever shown interest in what I’ve learned from serving a big part of what is now Senate District 1. In fact, several of them, including Timmy, were so consumed with the desire to be elected they flat out lied about my record.
I’ve grown a thick skin over the years, but the lie that my 10 years of hard work and sacrifice working for the people who elected me was wasted is hard to take without firing back with the truth.
Legislating is work! Getting things done at times seems impossible.
What follows is a small sampling of what I have worked on with whoever was willing to help. Please browse this summary and let me know if you think any of this has helped make life better for you and your family.
Dave LaRock considers himself to be a God-fearing, Bible-believing, Constitutional conservative.
He and his wife Joanne have been married for 41 years, and live in Clarke County. All but one of their seven children and 19 grandchildren also live in the Shenandoah Valley. Dave and Joanne made the decision to homeschool all their children starting about 35 years ago and believe others should have that choice available to them.
Dave LaRock has served in the Virginia House of Delegates, representing most of Clarke County and Northeast Frederick County, since January 2014. In 2023, Dave is running to continue serving the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia's 1st Senate District, comprised of Clarke, Frederick, Shenandoah, and Warren Counties, and the City of Winchester. Friends, neighbors, and people Dave has worked with over the years trust him as a man of his word.
"I work to fix the problems that plague the Commonwealth.
I give voters my promise that I will continue to provide honest, fair, and conservative leadership, to protect our rights and fight for high quality services and lower taxes."
Dave and Joanne were active in the local home school network, and support their church community and their family members who have devoted much time ministering to impoverished people in Belize, Ghana, and Brazil.
Joanne and Dave have grown a successful small business as a general contractor. As the manager of the business, Dave has a proven track record as an innovator and problem-solver. The success of this business proves his abilities to negotiate complex contracts and interact with government agencies. Dave has hand-picked teams and tackled big projects while staying within set budgets.
“My family and I love living in this beautiful rural area. This is our home and we would like our children to be able to make it their home. Raising a family, running a household and a business has taught me the importance of making careful decisions. I am sure that spending wisely and sticking to the conservative principles we share is the way to improve everyone’s quality of life.
The people of this district want high-quality services without massive tax increases. We are paying more than enough in taxes, but spending is out of control. I’d like to change that.”
Dave has a 10-year track record of legislative leadership working to protect families, children, and the unborn, while standing up for our rights and keeping spending in check.
Dave knows government should protect our rights and allow us the freedom and opportunity to make our lives better. He understands that when government gets outside its proper boundaries, it needs to be restored to its core functions and run efficiently. Too much of what our state legislature does is off course and out of touch with the needs of common working people and businesses. As government spending has soared, many of our problems, including traffic congestion, have only gotten worse. One of Dave’s top priorities is to prioritize spending so local transportation needs can be funded while keeping taxes low and spending at or below current levels.
He is a statesman, not a politician!
