BOSTON, MA – The Geoff Diehl for Governor campaign announces that long-time Republican activist Desiree Awiszio, who has been serving as the campaign’s Treasurer since its launch last July, will also be advising the campaign on its signature gathering efforts this spring.
Awiszio, a consulting engineer by trade, has extensive experience working with countless Republican candidates, managing their campaigns, and supporting their grassroots campaign strategies. Most recently, she served as Deputy Campaign Manager for Field Operation for Geoff Diehl’s 2018 campaign for United States Senate.
She also was one of the original sponsors of a 2013 ballot initiative to repeal automatic gas tax increases. Awiszio served as the Statewide Campaign manager in 2014 and helped build a network of volunteers that collected over 146,000 signatures in support of the ballot question, which was passed by voters in 2014. In recognition of her efforts, she was unanimously elected Honorary State Committee Member in 2016 by the membership of the Massachusetts Republican State Committee. She also served as Treasurer for the Make Massachusetts Great Again SuperPAC in 2016.
“I am extremely pleased Desiree is serving as part of our campaign,” Diehl said. “I’ve known Desiree for a long time, and I admire her tireless dedication to Republican causes. She is an important part of our team, and will provide us with invaluable assistance organizing our signature collection effort.”
Candidates for Governor are required to collect 10,000 certified signatures from voters in order to qualify for the ballot. According to Diehl, his campaign is already busy working with a large network of volunteers statewide to collect signatures. “We’re going to be very busy connecting with voters all across our state over the next few weeks, and we look forward to the opportunity to visit people in their home town to talk about our campaign,” Diehl said.
