Boston, MA … Today outside of the State House, Representative Geoff Diehl, candidate for U.S. Senate, proudly announced the endorsement of the Norfolk Sheriff’s Office County Correctional Officers Association.
“I am honored to receive this important endorsement so early in the process. This recognizes that I am the law and order candidate who will make public safety a priority,” said Diehl. “I am committed to proudly supporting our law enforcement officials who put their lives on the line to keep us safe.”
“We have taken the opportunity to review your stance on several issues that affect our communities within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Geoff’s experience and vision for the future of the people of Massachusetts has given us great confidence in his abilities to represent us in Washington. We believe Geoff’s election to the U.S. Senate will lead the Commonwealth in the right direction which will result in a stronger nation for us all,” said Gerald DeAngelis, Chairman of CCOA.
“We are confident in Geoff Diehl’s experience and proven success. He has the ability to succeed in representing us as U.S. Senator,” added DeAngelis.
This is the first major law enforcement endorsement in the race for the U.S. Senate seat.
The NCSO Officers are men and women who volunteer in their communities as coaches, leaders within their town halls and parent groups. When not working inside the jail, they support the programs that make all our communities a better place to live. They have 220 members.
“It is deeply disappointing that Senator Elizabeth Warren has been less than respectful of our law enforcement. When elected, they will have a friendly Senator who will stand up for them. Their concerns will not fall on deaf ears,” said Diehl. “I am committed to keep our citizens safe and making public safety a priority.”
Over the past couple of weeks, Diehl has picked up the endorsements of the Watertown Republican Town Committee, the Hanson Republican Town Committee, the Bourne Republican Town Committee, the East Bridgewater Republican Town Committee, the Dracut Republican Town Committee, the Somerville Republican City Committee, the Dighton Republican Town Committee, the Franklin Republican Town Committee, the Whitman Republican Town Committee, all of the Sudbury delegates to the April 28th convention, former New England Patriots Fred Smerlas, Steve Grogan, and Matt Light, Red Sox Champion Curt Schilling, and John Dennis, to name a few.
