Waltham – The Dahlberg Committee announced today that its candidate has earned the endorsement of Susan Pope, former state representative from the Thirteenth Middlesex district.

“I am endorsing Eric because he and I share an unshakeable belief in the Republican principles of lower taxes, limited government, and personal responsibility,” said Pope, who represented the communities of Lincoln, Sudbury, and Wayland for five terms in the Massachusetts House, from 1997 to 2006, and now serves as a Selectman in the town of Wayland. “Like me, he places the highest priority on responsiveness to the taxpayers, something that the good people of the Third Middlesex district desperately need.”

“Sue’s support means the world to me,” said Dahlberg. “She set the gold standard for responsive constituent services during her distinguished tenure in the House.”

Last week, Dahlberg was endorsed by Reed Hillman, 2006 GOP nominee for lieutenant governor and former commander of the Massachusetts State Police. Last month, Dahlberg picked up endorsements from Waltham City Councilor Diane LeBlanc and Concord Selectman Greg Howes. Former Governor Paul Cellucci and former State Senator Cile Hicks serve as honorary co-chairs of the Dahlberg campaign’s Steering Committee.
