Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and our campaign.

 

Friends,

My career in the Coast Guard, first as an enlisted man, then as a junior officer, and finally as a JAG, left me with a strong work ethic, a commitment to public service, and the leadership skills to be an effective advocate for our community.

As a retired military officer, I am committed to defending and protecting the Constitution and defending our individual liberties. And, as a 10th Amendment Conservative, I believe that the state legislature should stand firm against an increasingly intrusive federal government. Whether it’s job-killing regulations, health care mandates, or policies impacting local education, our state leaders need to keep the federal government in check.

I am hitting the campaign trail to share my vision and listen to your concerns. This campaign is going to be won the old-fashioned way: with grassroots support and shoe leather.

I look forward to earning your vote.

Sincerely,

ON THE ISSUES

Spencer Roach is a 10th Amendment Conservative, meaning he understands that the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution are reserved “to the people.” He believes that the federal administrative state has become populated by unelected bureaucrats who exert ever-increasing control of government functions that are reserved to the states. A strong state legislature is necessary to check federal government overreach.

Jobs and Economy

Spencer believes in the power of free market competition to spur innovation and economic growth. He will fight against governmental policies that seek to redistribute wealth or pick winners and losers in the marketplace.

Environment

As a career Coast Guard officer, Spencer recognizes that our waterways are both an environmental and economic necessity to our community. He is committed to restoring and protecting our water quality and fighting to ensure our estuaries are preserved.

Child Welfare

Spencer believes in protecting life at all ends of the spectrum, and believes that we must do more to protect children in the dependency court system. As a volunteer Guardian ad Litem he is familiar with the challenges and strains on the system, and he is devoted to protecting those without voices or choices.

2nd Amendment

Spencer will fight to protect the 2nd Amendment from those who seek to take away guns from law abiding American citizens. Spencer is the only candidate in this race to receive an AQ rating from the NRA based on his strong support for the 2nd Amendment.

Education

Spencer has a profound respect for the value of learning a trade. He believes more focus needs to be placed on trade schools and technical training in high schools. Young adults who choose not to go to college should have a meaningful career path rather than a series of low-skilled, minimum wage jobs for the rest of their lives.

Veterans

Spencer is unswerving in his support for veterans and his desire for Florida to become the most veteran-friendly state in the nation. As our warriors leave military service and transition into civilian life, Spencer wants to ensure that Florida is the best place for them to get an education, start a business, raise their family, and build or buy their first (and all future) homes.
