I Will Not Be Distracted

I wanted you to know that there is some petty politics going on with some of my colleagues. Let me assure you that I will not be distracted from my representation of the values of the 31st District. It has been an honor to earn the support from the citizens of the 31st District for the past 19 years. I am looking forward to running for reelection this year.

We have important things to do in Olympia. I am leading the effort to protect the Second Amendment, save Rainier School, and reform DSHS in its CPS policies.

There are a lot of legislators down here. There are important things to do. But, my office is always open. If you have any questions please call my office (360-786-7660) or send an email. I will be home most of the weekend and my home phone is in the book.

Best wishes,

In response to an article in the news today, I've found your blog and bookmarked it. I'll check back from time to time. Thanks.

This makes me mad. There is important work to do and you are doing your best to get DSHS reformed and other important business done and our rights protected. I have not voted since 1988 and the reason is the horrible childish mud slinging that goes on with those elected into office. Keep up your good work for "We The People" Senator. When we finally get rid of all the "special interest" groups and and "self serving" people I will resume my voting but not until. You get what you vote for! I may move into your district yet! What I hate is those who use fear mongering and hate. We all come from the same primortial soup bowl and people tend to forget that. I had my doctor laughing today as we talked about Obama's speech. I said "Finally we have a President with more testosterone that Eleanor Rosevelt!" I spelled that wrong! At least he gave a good tounge lashing to both parties. A well deserved one at that. Like my daddy always said "Parties are for children!" This government is living proof of the "children" people elected. Does anyone ever look up voting records other than me? And Thomas Jefferson was my favorite Founding Father. I believe that Government should fear "We The People" not the other way around.

You are the best! This State needs you, and people all over the country are hoping you can bring change. You do everything with passion, perhaps all the others in Olympia who don't understand that should stand up, take notice! This is what a true Senator does! They fight to uphold laws and fight for new laws, they protect and serve their constituants,umm hello...they serve the State lets try some teamwork!

You know, you have a growing base of supporters and there is little to nothing they could say at this point that will change that. You have proven yourself to the masses and the masses will speak in your behalf. Keep up the good work and know that we have your back. Let me know if there is backlash because I will publically speak and attest to your good works. You are more than worthy of our time, attention and support.

What's popular isn't always right, What's right isn't always popular.

Thanks for choosing the right.

Dear Senator Roach,

Just know this..You are a very popular Senator. And many are jealous over your accomplishments and the zeal with which you persue your endeavors.

Outspoken..YES YOU ARE..but always with a purpose. I respect that in any person, especially one involved in the political arena. People always know where you stand..because you speak the truth and don't sugar coat issues. I would much rather see that in a politician, than one to insecure to voice what their constituents are telling them. YOU HAVE NO FEAR!

Some are so incapacitated by negativity that they lose their capacity to legislate fairly and with an open mind. Some are easily swayed against their own convictions for fear of becoming unpopular.

Always remember.."STICKS and STONES may BREAK your BONES..but WORDS will NEVER HURT YOU!

Senator Roach,

The grassroots does have power. Independents do have voting power. I am a voter. Right now; the Republican party has some explaining to do. You do have support!

I third the run for Governor. Does that mean 3 strikes and you're in? :)
I will resume voting if you do.
