$1,000,000!

Whitman, MA … Today Representative Geoff Diehl (R-Whitman), candidate for U.S. Senate, announced that he has raised $1,000,000 for his campaign. “I am proud that our team has raised $1 million in this important campaign for the United States Senate. This strong financial support shows that we have the right message of lowering the tax burden, growing jobs and ending illegal immigration to win in 2018,” said Diehl. Diehl has built a donor base of over 9,000 supporters, 3,700 volunteers, and 53,000 friends on Facebook. He is the only candidate to have raised $1 million from donors. “Having successfully repealed automatic gas tax hikes, I know from that campaign money is not always the determining factor in winning elections. That’s why we have focused on both grassroots and fundraising,” said Diehl. “We have a strong grassroots team that has more than tripled since we successfully repealed the automatic gas tax….

Diehl: Elizabeth Warren’s MLK Breakfast Remarks Divide Americans

Senator Warren Focused On 2020, Not Massachusetts Boston, MA … Today Representative Geoff Diehl, candidate for U.S. Senate, criticized Senator Elizabeth Warren for remarks at the Martin Luther King Breakfast. “Senator Warren’s divisive remarks, including her use of an expletive intended for shock value, continue to divide Americans and do nothing for the people of Massachusetts, except ensure that we will not have a seat at the table in Washington, D.C,” said Diehl. “Senator Warren’s concern of a challenge from Oprah and others in 2020 has nothing to do with remembering the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, which is what this solemn day is intended to do.” Diehl officially announced his campaign for Senate in August and was the leader of the successful grassroots effort in repealing automatic gas tax increases in 2014, saving Massachusetts taxpayers $2 billion.

Diehl Reacts to Globe Article

Whitman, MA … Today Representative Geoff Diehl, candidate for U.S. Senate, reacted to the Boston Globe article that called Warren a bipartisan dealmaker. “Facts are a stubborn thing. Elizabeth Warren has been rated the most partisan Senator in the nation. Since announcing my candidacy for the U.S. Senate, Warren has attempted to reform her image. For years she has ignored the state, only holding 5 town hall meetings. Now that Warren is running for re-election, she holds fourteen meetings. If she was truly bipartisan, she would have been able to deliver for Massachusetts. Senator Warren has acted more like the Democratic National Party Chairman, than a Senator from Massachusetts,” said Diehl. “If Warren was bipartisan, why are her ratings so low from the taxpayer organizations that monitor Senators?” questioned Diehl. “Warren needs to be held accountable for her entire record — not her election year transformation.”

National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

“Today is January 9, and it’s National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.  And I want to take a moment to thank those brave men and women who put on the uniform, each and every day before they go out into our communities to serve and protect the people of Massachusetts.  Law enforcement officers at all levels and in various agencies, have chosen a profession that puts their lives on the line and they have answered a call to public service that’s demanding, and in many times, unappreciated. On National Law Enforcement Day, we have an opportunity to thank them for their service.  I hope you’ll join me in showing your support.  It can be sending a note of thanks to your local, or county or state police agency.   Or wearing blue.  Or simply shaking the hand of the next police officer you see today.  It all adds up to giving…

Diehl Challenges Warren to 6 Year Pledge

Whitman, MA … Today Representative Geoff Diehl, candidate for U.S. Senate, pledged to serve 6 years and challenged Senator Elizabeth Warren to make the same commitment to the people of Massachusetts. “Our state deserves a full time Senator — not a part-time Senator, part-time author, and part-time presidential candidate,” said Diehl. “As your next U.S. Senator, my priorities will not be divided by selling a book or running for another office. I will be there for Massachusetts from the time I get out of bed in the morning until my head hits the pillow in the evening.” The pledge states “I, ____, pledge to the people of Massachusetts that I will serve the full 6 year term, and focus solely on representing their interests in the United States Senate.” Diehl issued the challenge to Warren via social media today and sent her the pledge to sign. “It is clear to…

Diehl: Happy New Year for Drivers

4th Year MA Drivers Saved from Gas Tax Increase Boston, MA … Today, Representative Geoff Diehl, candidate for U.S. Senate, celebrated the 4th year that drivers have been saved from a gas tax increase. Diehl led the successful grassroots ballot question to repeal automatic gas tax hikes. If the 2013 law had not been repealed, gas taxes would have increased today. “It is a Happy New Year for Massachusetts taxpayers. Due to our successful effort in stopping automatic gas tax hikes, drivers will not be forced to pay higher gas taxes for the 4th consecutive year,” said Diehl. In 2013, the legislature along with Governor Deval Patrick passed a tax bill linking the gas tax to inflation. If the law had remained in place, gas taxes would have increased every January 1st without a vote of the legislature. “No tax should ever increase without a vote of the legislature. In…

Diehl: Warren Feels Pressure

Diehl’s Mobile Office Will Provide Accessibility Boston, MA … Today Representative Geoff Diehl, candidate for U.S. Senate, criticized Senator Elizabeth Warren for holding her first ever town hall meeting in December. “It is clear that Senator Warren is feeling the pressure,” said Diehl.  “Before announcing her re-election campaign, the incumbent had only held a total 5 town hall meetings in over 4 years in elected office. This year she has scheduled 15 meetings in a blatant attempt to rewrite history. Saturday she is conducting her first ever December town hall meeting. Where was Warren last year? People deserve more than a part-time Senator.” In complete contrast to Warren, two weeks ago Diehl rolled out his ‘Diehl on Wheels’ RV that will serve as his mobile office when elected to the Senate. He will use the RV to meet with people during his entire term, not just when running for re-election….

Diehl’s Statement on Resignation of Franken: Warren still has questions to answer

Diehl Wants Senators and Congressional Members To Be Personally Responsible Not Taxpayers Whitman, MA … Today Representative Geoff Diehl (R-Whitman), candidate for U.S. Senate, stated that Senator Al Franken’s resignation still leaves many unanswered questions for Senator Elizabeth Warren. “Even when by his own admission Franken sexually assaulted a woman, Warren only wanted an ethics investigation. It was an insiders’ type response,” said Diehl. “Warren has still failed to donate the money she received from Ben Affleck, who also admitted to groping women. Moreover, Warren has failed to demand accountability of Senators and Congressional members who have sexually harassed staff. Taxpayers should not be paying for a hush fund!” The Congressional Office of Compliance revealed that hundreds of women have been victims of sexual harassment by members of Congress. During the past 10 years, over $15 million in awards and settlements have been paid out using taxpayer funds for Capitol…

Diehl on Wheels Mobile Office Will Provide Accessibility

Boston, MA … Today, Representative Geoff Diehl, candidate for U.S. Senate, rolled out his mobile office – a 30-foot wrapped RV. “This is literally our biggest announcement. We are going to be rolling across Massachusetts to talk to voters about lowering their tax burden, fighting illegal immigration, growing jobs, and putting Massachusetts first,” said Diehl. “Elizabeth Warren has spent her time in the Senate writing and selling books. I am going to put the people first. When elected, this RV will serve as my mobile office. As Senator I will go town to town to hear people’s concerns and help them solve problems,” said Diehl. “Unlike the incumbent, I won’t ignore the state for years.” Up until this year, Warren has held only 5 town hall meetings. Since announcing re-election, she has held 14 town hall meetings attempting to rewrite her record of putting Massachusetts in the rearview mirror to…

Sales tax cut winning support as ballot campaign moves forward

By Christian M. Wade Statehouse Reporter Nov 22, 2017 BOSTON — Proposals to lower the sales tax, increase the minimum wage, and require employers to offer paid medical leave moved a step closer to next year’s ballot as backers turned in hundreds of thousands of signatures in support of the measures. On Wednesday, committees supporting 20 statewide referendums were rushing against a midnight deadline to submit the required 64,750 signatures from voters to get on the ballot in the 2018 elections. The petitions were submitted to city and town clerks across the state, and must still be certified. Backers of a proposal to cut the sales tax from 6.25 percent to 5 percent, and set a permanent tax-free weekend, say they’ve turned in more than the required number of petitions and expect to make next year’s ballot. “Judging by the feedback I’ve received from volunteers, the voters have been very…
