For LaRocks, Running For and Serving In Office is a Family Affair!


Dear [fname],

Over the past weeks, I’ve had the great opportunity to bring my two grandsons, Sam and Marcus, as Joanne and I meet and listen to the citizens who make up the new Virginia 1st Senate District. 

I want to show my grandkids who I work for as a state delegate, and hopefully as a state senator, and teach them how our Republic works. 

I want them to see firsthand the hard work that comes before the tremendous honor and responsibility that being a public servant involves.

As Joanne, Sam, Marcus and I walk neighborhoods and ride together, we talk about serving our community and fighting for principles that matter. 

For LaRocks, running for and serving in office is a family affair!

It is especially meaningful when you catch people at home who have the time and desire to engage and let us know what is on their minds.

So, what is on people's minds? Well there's plenty of agreement that things are not getting better in this

world. People are hurting from inflation and see our schools need some serious help.

When talking and listening about the new Senate seat and upcoming Republican primary, I'm very encouraged, hearing plenty of comments, such as:

  • (This is my favorite) "Dave, you've been taking the lumps for us, thank you, you bet we're going to keep you in Richmond"
  • "You answered my call when I really needed help, you listened and fixed it; thanks, and yes, I'll vote for you again."
  • A common question we hear is, "Your track record is hard to beat; can your opponents even come close to that, or are they just talk?" 

This primary election belongs to those who choose to vote. It is a pleasure taking my candidacy to them directly, and I am blessed that my wonderful wife of 42 years, Joanne, and two of our grandchildren are part of that. 

A couple of weeks ago, we sent our first Senate District Newsletter. You can read the entire newsletter here if you didn't get it in the mail. Below are a couple of excerpts....

1st Senate District Newsletter 1



Delegate Dave LaRock and Governor Glen Youngkin agree on a course to Excellence in Education. LaRock said, “Parents want to raise healthy, happy children who are ready to realize their full potential, so quality education options are a must.” 

Many parents are outraged at schools pushing extreme ideologies and hiding it from parents. We must ensure that parents know what their

children are learning in school, protect girls’ athletics from males who claim to be female, and expand school choice options.

Governor Youngkin is committed to improvement of education and fixing the mistake of dumbing down what kids are being taught. Instead

he is saying we should “Offer more advanced math and science opportunities and vocational training in high demand fields.”

Taxpayers are paying huge sums (whether they know it or not) on material that is not connected with fundamental learning. Greater transparency will help parents make the best decisions for their children’s education. LaRock added, “Focusing on core academics and vocational training are priorities all families can agree on.”

Parents have the right to instill and nurture values and beliefs in their own children and make decisions concerning their children’s development in accordance with their customs, faith, and family culture. School policies must ensure that parents are in charge.

The I-81 Corridor has been overcapacity for decades. I and other I-81 corridor legislators ordered a data-driven study of I-81 which identified $4.2 billion in potential projects. The Virginia General Assembly in 2019 secured $2 billion in funding for the priority projects identified by the study. 

The I-81 Corridor Improvement Program now includes 64 fully-funded operational and capital improvement projects that are expected to result in 450 fewer crashes and

6 million fewer hours of delay each year.


In our area, merge lane extensions and curve improvements are completed, while more complex projects including adding a third lane for four miles southbound from the I-66 merge in Shenandoah County, and in both directions between exits 313 and 317 in Winchester, are funded and in early design stages. For more information on I-81 and my work on this issue, please visit:



As mentioned above,we are already out and about talking with voters most days, we'd love you have you join us. We're also getting signs out, and scheduling meet & greet events around the district. If you can help with any of these, please let me know here!

A week ago, I was honored to be invited to Christendom College's ribbon cutting for their beautiful Christ the King Chapel. Lots of wonderful faculty, staff, students, and others were in attendance who are committed to sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ & serving in the community & beyond.

Last Monday was also the day the first campaign finance report of the Senate campaign, was made public, and we ended up with the most money raised in the quarter, and cash-on-hand, but it was close and we could use your support in that way as well. Please keep me on the job by supporting our campaign here!


Thanks again for the honor of serving you. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help you!

If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or email my office at 540-751-8364 or You can also follow me on Twitter @LaRock4Delegate and my Facebook page to keep up to date. I'm also now on MeWe and Telegram.
