Republican Barnstable County Commissioner Ronald Beaty today endorsed Geoff Diehl for United States Senator from Massachusetts.
Beaty stated, "Today, it is a profound honor and privilege for me to wholeheartedly endorse Massachusetts State Representative Geoff Diehl and his Republican candidacy for United States Senator."
Beaty elaborated, "During his time in office, Geoff has led the fight for more transparency and accountability at the State House. He has worked to increase jobs and send more local aid to cities and towns. Geoff also has been a champion of Massachusetts taxpayers and has taken bold action to protect them from tax hikes."
Beaty continued, "In 2014, Geoff saved Massachusetts taxpayers from a $2 billion gas tax increase. The Legislature had voted the year before to link the state gas tax to inflation, so that the gas tax would increase automatically every future year. Geoff stepped forward to lead a grassroots effort for a ballot question campaign to repeal the tax hike. His group collected 146,000 signatures in favor of the ballot question, and despite special interest groups outspending his team 31 to 1, Geoff’s group won. Massachusetts drivers have avoided three straight gas tax increases as a result."
Beaty explained, "In 2016, Geoff was Co-Chairman of the Massachusetts effort to elect Donald Trump as President. Thanks to Geoff, and others, we now have President Trump, and the ongoing effort to Make America Great Again!"
Commissioner Beaty said, "When elected as our next U.S. Senator, Geoff Diehl will work diligently with the Trump Administration to bring prosperity to all Americans. He will be the polar opposite of crazy socialist Elizabeth Warren who constantly works against the President in an effort effort to undermine all that he is doing to make this country great once more."
Beaty finally said, "I strongly urge all Massachusetts voters and taxpayers to support Geoff Diehl for United States Senator."
