Peabody, MA…Today Representative Geoff Diehl, the endorsed Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, announced that he has received the endorsement of former Peabody Representative Leah Cole.
“I am proud to have the endorsement of Rep. Cole. She served the people of Peabody with honor and she is a truly caring nurse who provides great medical care,” said Diehl.
“I have had the honor of working with Geoff at the State House. I have seen firsthand the respect he has for taxpayers, constituents and this country. Geoff never stops working to solve problems, as we all saw when he worked successfully to repeal the automatic gas tax,” said Cole.
Diehl and Cole worked together on numerous important issues at the State House including requiring more transparency in the legislative process, fighting tax increases, and health care issues.
Cole was State Representative for Peabody for two terms. She left the legislature to pursue her successful career in nursing full time. As a State Representative, she advocated strongly for Peabody and improvements in health care.
“Geoff is the only candidate with serious plans on fighting the opioid epidemic, helping our veterans and growing our economy. It will be a huge benefit for our community and the people of Massachusetts if Geoff is elected our next Senator,” said Cole.
Diehl plans to use his RV as a mobile office so area residents don’t have to travel to Boston to see their Senator.
“Warren has failed to help Massachusetts taxpayers and small businesses. We need a Senator who will stand up for the hard working people of Massachusetts and focus on the economy. 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 21stCentury 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 government.”
Diehl won the Republican convention by a thirty 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 David DeCoste, Marc Lombardo, Jim Lyons, Shaunna O’Connell, 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, comedian Lenny Clarke and broadcaster 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.
