Law Enforcement Backing Diehl


Another Major Police Endorsement – NEPBA

CHELMSFORD, MA—The New England Police Benevolent Association, representing over 5,000 law enforcement personnel, has announced its formal endorsement of Representative Geoff Diehl in his bid to unseat Elizabeth Warren.

“Geoff Diehl is the kind of leader we need to empower and champion our law enforcement community,” said Jerry Flynn, the union’s executive director. “His legislative record supporting men and women in blue runs in stark contrast to the rhetoric espoused by Warren.”

“I’m proud of the enormous trust and confidence our men and women in blue are putting in me,” said Geoff Diehl. “When our men and women on the front lines have the resources and support they need from our leaders, our families and communities can feel safe and secure.”

Support from the law enforcement community across the Commonwealth has steadily grown since Diehl’s decisive win in the primary. Among the law enforcement officials and groups that have publicly endorsed the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate:

  • Sheriff Tom Hodgson
  • Sheriff Jim Cummings
  • Sheriff Lew Evangelidis
  • Everett Police Superior Officers Local 95
  • Everett Police Patrolman’s Local 94
  • Worcester Police Officers Local 911
  • Norfolk County Correction Officers
  • Massachusetts Municipal Police Coalition

Diehl won the Republican convention by a thirty-point margin and the Primary by 29 points.  He has earned many endorsements including: Representatives David DeCoste, Marc Lombardo, Jim Lyons, Shaunna O’Connell, Lenny Mirra and Peter Durant, Senator Bob Hedlund, former New England Patriots Fred Smerlas, Steve Grogan, and Matt Light, Red Sox Champion Curt Schilling, comedian Lenny Clark and broadcaster John Dennis, to name a few.  He has also received endorsements from former Governor’s Councilor David Constantine (D-New Bedford) and Former Mayor and State Representative Bob Correia (D-Fall River).
