This is a big election year for local politics, particularly at the state level, where voters will decide the next governor of Massachusetts.

It’s been over a decade since Massachusetts had a Democratic governor, but polls show that Democrat Maura Healey is polling ahead of Republican candidate Geoff Diehl, who recently won the nomination with support from GOP party leaders and voters. 

The race isn’t over until voters cast their ballots, and in order to do that, they need to be informed about what each candidate will bring to the governor’s office. 


Prior to the primary elections, reporters spoke with Diehl about why he felt he was the right candidate to lead the state, and asked him questions submitted by readers. Now that the race is down to Diehl and Healey, we’re taking more questions. 

We want to know what issues matter most to voters.
