My name is Rachel Roberts. I’m running for State Senate in the 24th district, and I’m going to work my heart out to earn your vote, win this election and upend a system that no longer works for any of us.
I am running for office because our region needs a stronger and smarter economy, our healthcare system is failing everyday Americans, and insider politicians in Frankfort are bent on breaking our children’s schools. Like so many people I’ve spoken with throughout Northern Kentucky, I’m exhausted by career politicians from legacy families who say they’re going to fix things and then do nothing. The corruption must end.
I come from a long line of proud Kentuckians. I was raised by parents who taught me the core values of hard work, responsibility, and honesty. My great-grandpa was a fireman. My grandfather was a naval specialist and NASA engineer. My mother graduated from Chase Law School and spent her early career working to strengthen labor relations. My father graduated from the Kentucky Military Institute and is a county addiction/mental health specialist. Now, in a time of great need for our region and state, I am following in their footsteps to do what’s right and serve everyday folks like you.
I have spent my life building a strong home, successful businesses and a community that reflects the guiding values with which my family raised me. I’ve spoken with thousands of concerned citizens, and I hear you when you say we need to find new and innovative ways to drive revenue so we can actually fix our crumbling infrastructure. We need to get creative and community-focused if we’re going to dig in and deliver on solving the opioid epidemic. And we have to stop attacking public schools and teachers. Instead, we’re going to work smarter and harder to set our children on a better, stronger path forward.
Take a stand for Northern Kentucky. Join me as I stand up to Frankfort. Become a Friend of Rachel Roberts today!
