Republican to challenge Sen. Robson
State Senate candidate Rick Richard’s Web site is at www.voterickrichard.com.
JANESVILLE A local man made it official Wednesday: He’s running against state Sen. Judy Robson in the 2010 elections.
Rick Richard, 42, of 2625 W. Highway 14 in Janesville Township, is running as a Republican.
The winner of the November 2010 election will represent the 15th Senate District, which comprises most of Rock County and the northwestern corner of Walworth County.
On his Web site, Richard paints Robson, D-Beloit, as a tax-and-spender who participated in the closed-door meetings where details of the latest state budget were hammered out.
Richard said he knows how to bring jobs to an area, and that would be his top priority. He said he would work for greater transparency in government, gun rights and lower taxes.
Richard belongs to St. John Vianney Parish in Janesville, and is a former board member of the Rock County Republican Party.
Richard and his wife, Diedre, own and operate RD Worldwide, a management search and temporary staffing firm. Diedre was elected to the Janesville School Board in April. The couple have two children.
