The following information was provided by the Geoff Diehl for Senate campaign:
Today Representative Geoff Diehl, the endorsed Republican candidate for U.S.
Senate, announced that he has received the endorsement of Republican State Committeeman Steve Aylward, of Watertown.
“I am proud to endorse Geoff Diehl for U.S. Senate. He has been a great leader on fighting for taxpayers, standing up for victims, and demanding accountability at the State House,” said Aylward.
“I am honored to have received Steve’s endorsement. His strong support will help us win Watertown,” said Diehl.
“I have had the honor of working with side by side Geoff on the effort to repeal automatic gas tax hikes. Our efforts saved taxpayers $2 billion. He is a hard working Representative who always puts people first,” said Aylward. “
“Geoff is the only candidate with serious plans on ending illegal immigration, fighting the opioid epidemic, helping our veterans and growing our economy,” said Aylward.
Aylward was Diehl’s co-chairman in the ballot question that repealed the linkage of the gas tax to inflation. If the law had remained in place, the gas tax would have increased every year. Aylward and Diehl have saved taxpayers from three gas tax hikes already.
“Warren has failed to help Massachusetts taxpayers. We need a Senator who will stand up for the hard working people of Massachusetts. While Senator Warren has focused on putting money in her wallet selling books, I have focused on putting money into your wallet,” added Diehl.
“Massachusetts is too great for a part-time Senator. We need a Senator who will focus on the citizens of the Commonwealth,” said Diehl. “From the time you wake up in the morning and until you go to bed in the evening you should be working to help the people of Massachusetts. I think people should come first ahead of oneself. Our Senator needs to do their job by putting you first!”
Diehl is disappointed with Senator Warren who is more focused on her national profile rather than working in the best interest of Massachusetts. One key example of this, Diehl pointed out, was how she voted against the 21st Century Cures Act.
“If she cared about our state, she wouldn’t have voted against a bipartisan measure to promote medical innovation and the development of new treatments for cancer and other diseases. Massachusetts is a medical research leader and she still voted against the bill,” said Diehl. “Moreover, Warren would not have voted to shutdown the federal government.”
Diehl won the Republican convention by a 30 point margin. He has been earning many endorsements including: the Watertown Republican Town Committee, the Hanson Republican Town Committee, the Bourne Republican Town Committee, the East Bridgewater Republican Town Committee, the Dighton Republican Town Committee, Boston Ward 9 Republican Committee, the Somerville Republican City Committee, the Whitman Republican Town Committee, the Dracut Republican Town Committee, Representatives Shaunna O’Connell, Marc Lombardo, Jim Lyons, Lenny Mirra, Nick Boldyga and Peter Durant, Youth Conservatives of Massachusetts, all of the Sudbury delegates to the convention, former New England Patriots Fred Smerlas, Steve Grogan, and Matt Light, Red Sox Champion Curt Schilling, and John Dennis, to name a few. Diehl was the first candidate to receive a major law enforcement endorsement. The Norfolk County Correction Officers have thrown their weight behind Diehl.
