ELECTION: Matt Richardson being defamed

Letter by Kellie A. Monette Chapman, Sumner on Aug. 31, 2010 at 5:24 pm with 10 Comments »

The verbal attack on Matt Richardson at my front door over the weekend by Pam Roach really has me upset. I hope voters in the 31st district are smart enough to see through the lies.

Richardson has no criminal record. He has a security clearance from the Department of Defense, which involves an extensive FBI background check, and he’s a teacher in good standing.

It appears that Roach is desperately seeking to defame Richardson and make him into something he’s not.

  1. Roach is insane. She’s pulled a gun on legislative staff – No Joke – and has a string of incidents on the Senate floor, including when she was screaming at Lt. Governor Owen regarding the removal of flowers from her desk by floor staff. Vote her out 31st District residents. Please.

  2. Sumner401 says:

    Richardson has baggage, with out a doubt and it’s serious baggage, but he isn’t insane and threat the way roach is.

  3. bobcat1a says:

    Somebody from the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party please answer this question: “If, after 20 years, Pam Roach does not constitute a career politician who has done nothing to make the situation better, who would?”

  4. Perspicacious1 says:

    This legislative race is certainly a monumental reason for adding NOTA to the ballots! Roach’s aggressive behavior is not fit for public office and at this point, who really knows the “real” Matt Richardson? The Senate race in the 31st is a no win situation for the voters…….

  5. AreYouHighOrWhat says:

    Flat out lies! Matt does have a criminal record, and saying otherwise just proves your sheeple. I can overlook a lot when ther’es gray areas, and there’s quite a few with Matt, the federal way schools, the infidelity (looooved watching that last Sumner City Council meeting, it’s online if you’re interested), and even the emails where he was OBVIOUSLY trying to set up secret meetings. The domestic violence police records in Sumner are not to be ignored, specifically, his reasoning and explanation for his daughters black eye make everything else irrelevant. GAME OVER MATT ! The entire town should be ashamed that this is the type of candidate they thought could beat Pam, or that he’s even employed by the city at all, he should be run out of town! Apparently very little has changed in Sumner over the years and it’s STILL a place where the good ole boys network plays CYA.

    Roach isn’t fit for office, and Matt isn’t suitable to be around children of hold office. Sad, sad , sad!

  6. CrazyJim says:

    How does Roach keep getting on the ballot? The insanity!

  7. SuperSteve says:

    The insanity is that the voters in the 31LD allowed these two freaks on the ballot.

    Roach is clearly mentally unstable, while Richardson has serious ethical lapses.

    Whomever gets elected should face an immediate recall campaign so that the seat can be opened up for someone credible to serve the people.

  8. Sumner401 says:

    Looks like Matt is doing the ‘defaming’ all by himself.
    Can we get a write-in candidate going so we can really fix the problem?

  9. ValleyTarts says:

    The FBI do not investigate clearances for the Department of Defense. This is no doubt another fog cloud generated by Richarson’s groupies to fend off justified criticism. Anyone can check the Washington State rap sheets on line also and see him listed repeatedly.
    Those are facts, not Richardson spin.

  10. How do you vote for none of the above?
