Roger knows this is no time to gut law enforcement or make empty promises to those who put their lives on the line in a crisis. He knows we must get them the tools they need and do it now.
ROGER PIKE LIVES OUR LOCAL VALUES:
Roger and his wife Donna just celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary in June. They live on 5 acres near Wheatland Ferry with their 15 year old daughter Catherine. The family loves camping, fishing, horsemanship and the cherries they grow.
To my neighbors in District 15:
"For too long government has served the interests of whoever had the most money. That's got to change. My goals will be: good jobs, fair wages, good schools, and safe neighborhoods. Responsible leadership that works. That's my pledge to you."
