I invite you to my home on January 8th for a reception honoring Del. Dave LaRock for his years of service.
I and many others are grateful for Del. Dave LaRock's conservative leadership for Loudoun, Clarke, and Frederick Counties in the House of Delegates for 10 years, and even before that on issues like opposing the Chesapeake Bay ordinance and taxpayer funding of the Dulles Rail project.
We want to honor Dave as he finishes his term of service to the 33rd House District.
My wife, Barbara, and I will be hosting an appreciation event for Dave and Joanne LaRock on January 8th at our home in Ashburn. If you are able to attend, please send us an RSVP as soon as possible.
Senator Dick Black (Ret.)
I'm writing to thank you one last time as a Virginia Delegate. From the bottom of my heart - Thank you for trusting me to serve you. Thank you for your prayers and support over the last decade.
While this year's elections didn't go as we had hoped, we can rest in the confidence that "The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps." Proverbs 16:9 (ESV)
As we move past the Thanksgiving holiday and look forward to celebrating our Lord's birth in a few weeks, I am enjoying my new freedom.
While it has been an enormous honor to serve in the longest continually-meeting legislative body in the Western Hemisphere, the greater privilege has been all the wonderful people I've been honored to meet and serve over the last decade.
I look around and see our world moving away from the Truth and Light. Political efforts, no matter how well-placed, seem to only stall the decline if they have any effect at all.
The bright side is that nothing escapes the notice of the one true God of the universe who is looking out for us.
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)
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!
