Thank You for Electing Dennis Galvin

On March 1, the voters of Massachusetts rendered their verdict in a number of very important political races. The turnout was heavy, reflecting the widespread concern held by the people related to their prosperity, their security and their freedom.

I had the great privilege of participating as a candidate in that election. In this role I had the opportunity to meet hundreds of people across the 1st Middlesex Senatorial District and to listen to the issues that they thought were important. One thing was very clear, our citizens are not happy with the direction of our nation and our state. There is a growing distrust of government and politics in general. The results of the Massachusetts primary election offer strong evidence of this fact. There is a lot of work to be done and a lot of problems to try to correct.

The voters in the Republican primary gave me the great honor of representing them on the Massachusetts Republican State Committee. I am grateful to them for this opportunity and I wish to assure them that I have heard their concerns and will fully commit myself to address them. I would like to thank all those who worked hard on my behalf and all of those who voted for me.

I would also like to acknowledge the effort and commitment made by Jordan Gys, my opponent. It takes courage for anyone to enter into elective politics. Jordan deserves credit for his participation. He represents the future of the party.

It is time for all Republicans to come together and prepare for the tough presidential election that is coming in November. Despite the differences that arose during the primary, we must all unite as November approaches. The business at hand is to focus on articulating the Republican message for the fall. Unity means victory. Ensuring a Republican victory in November and breaking the one party monopoly on Beacon Hill are the two causes to which I have dedicated my campaign.

I will be counting on the great support I received in the primary election of 2016 to help sustain these efforts throughout the next four years.

Support For Galvin And McGaha

After reading yesterday’s article “Baker and Polito Make Endorsement In Westford GOP State Committee Race” I was inspired to write a short letter to Westford CAT News.
It’s no secret I’ve been cautious over Baker after he was endorsed by Michael Bloomberg.

With that in mind, the last thing I want to do is vote for the person endorsed by Baker whose job it is, in part, to keep an eye on Baker. I want someone who is OUR representative, not Beacon Hill’s.

Our district has the opportunity to elect two of our own to represent republicans in this area on the Republican State Committee on March 1st.

For the woman’s seat I support Georjann McGaha and for the man’s seat I support Dennis Galvin.

McGaha and Galvin lead the Westford Republican Town Committee in opposing the Board of Selectmen’s attempt to ban guns in Westford.  Galvin, a retired state trooper, and McGaha, an NRA member, fought and successfully defeated the gun grab. Ryan refers to Bloomberg’s attempt to ban certain types of guns. 


Every four years some candidates for State Committee seem to appear as a blip on our political radar only to sink out of sight – and resurface four years later. The current endorsement letter template going around reminds us that voters will select one man and one woman, in the First Middlesex district, to serve on the party’s state committee and that the Republican State committee is the governing board of the Massachusetts Republican Party etc, etc–. Sounds like inside baseball, and, if you have that impression, you would not be wrong. I share the sense of other Republicans that the State committee could be more visible and doing much more – especially in making the State Committee a resource for local grass roots efforts to build the party and recruit and elect candidates. Dennis Galvin can help turn this situation around for Dunstable, Groton, Lowell, Pepperell, Tyngsboro, and Westford Republicans. He has an outstanding record of service to his state, his town, and his party. A retired State Police Major who commanded the force’s Training and Arson Investigation units, he has also held high level security position in the public and private sectors. His town elected him to its Planning Board three times, and he now serves as Chairman. He has run competitive races against State Representative incumbents, knocked on doors for other Republican Candidates, collected signatures for Tank the Gas Tax and other ballot initiatives, and been an active member of his own Town Committee. These activities and accomplishments are a good match for what should be the Committee job description – and also say a lot about his energy, and ability to organize and motivate- in other words, his leadership. Dennis is one of those people who can get people to show up and pitch in. A big part of his leadership is his own example. No one will outwork him. Dennis will put these qualities to works as an on the job partner and resource for First District Republicans. He will not pull the Boston disappearing act. If you think your voice is not being heard by the Republican power structure, you can know that Dennis does not back down from establishment types. He will be the same fighter he was when he was Captain of the State Police Boxing Team. The Galvin campaign is more than a choice – it’s an opportunity.

Vote Reform for Massachusetts!

Time for a Reagan Revolution in Massachusetts

Dear 2016 Massachusetts Republican Primary Voters,

On March 1st, will you choose Politics or Principle?

After you vote for your preferred Republican Presidential Nominee, further down the ballot you will have a CHOICE in the races for Republican State Committee. You can choose to vote for establishment Republicans that go-along-to-get-along with corruption and incompetence in both parties, or grassroots Republican activists that will stand up, and proudly, and clearly explain the failures of big government, and call for lower taxes, less government, and a stop to endless illegal immigration.

Those of us seeking reform have seen first-hand how the political class of both parties is betraying the average voter, and finally giving rise to anti-establishment candidates such as Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul. Additional candidates like Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina, and Ben Carson claim that the establishment is hurting the Republican Party. So why would you vote on March 1st to give the establishment more power?

There are just 3 simple steps to elect reformers:

  1. In the search box below enter your town
  2. Write down the name for state committee man and the name for state committee woman. You vote for one of each. The names listed below are the reformers. If a race is uncontested, no name is listed.
  3. Find and vote for them on the ballot on March 1st

This is a quick and important way to send a message to the Republican establishment that you want your country back!

Galvin Voices Frustration At Governor’s Influence In GOP State Committee Race

Westford voters will head to the polls on March 1 for Massachusetts’ Presidential Primary and Westford Republicans will also choose male and female members of their party’s State Committee.

In that race, GOP State Committeeman Candidate Dennis Galvin has cited his frustration with recent endorsements by Governor Charlie Baker.

Recently Baker endorsed Galvin’s opponent Jordan Gys, who served on Baker’s campaign staff in 2014.

Gys is one of many candidates supported by Baker across the state, which Baker representatives told the Boston Globe was an effort to support advocates who share Baker’s vision of “an inclusive Republican Party focused on growing its numbers and winning elections.”

Galvin, who said he campaigned for Baker alongside his own campaign for the First Middlesex House District in 2014, voiced displeasure with the Governor taking sides in a race where he feels Baker should be supporting all Republicans equally.

“The vigorous challenge made by Republican candidates for the House and Senate in 2014 helped Baker drive out his vote,” said Galvin. “(This decision is) certainly not an example of enlightened leadership; one might conclude that Baker is trying to destroy the party, not build it.”

Baker has not been the only force making endorsements in the campaign. In Westford, the Westford Republican Town Committee recently endorsed Galvin.

However, Galvin, a Westford resident, sees no comparison between the endorsements.

“I got $250, but to compare it with this race is apples and oranges,” he said. “You have a massive expenditure of money, and it’s going across the state.”

In contrast, Gys says he has supported Baker’s efforts in the past, and that Galvin’s frustration with Baker’s efforts is counterproductive.

“I’m extremely grateful for Governor Baker’s support, which is based on my commitment to building a stronger Republican Party that advanced our principles, grows our numbers and wins elections,” he said. “These are positive and unifying objectives, and my opponent’s attacks on Governor Baker demonstrates why he is not the best candidate to advance these goals.”

Gys and Galvin will seek Republican votes in a district that includes Westford as well as Dunstable, Groton, Lowell, Pepperell and Tyngsborough.
