A Representative Fighting for Cape Cod on Beacon Hill
Kip Diggs is a small business owner, former professional boxer, and third-generation Cape Cod resident who is running for State Representative to fight for Barnstable and Yarmouth. A proud father, he wants to make sure our community remains a great place for the next generation to live and raise a family.
Kip grew up admiring his family’s commitment to public service. His grandfather was a military veteran who founded Joe’s Twin Villa after leaving the military. Two of his great-uncles were members of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, flying fighter planes during World War II. His father served three tours of duty in the Vietnam War, while his uncle was a firefighter.
As a young man, Kip started boxing, first as a hobby and then as a profession. Boxing taught Kip the importance of hard work. He trained for months, without a single day off, to win on fight night. In 1996, he became the IBO and NABF World Welterweight Champion. While boxing, Kip started a construction transportation company. Running a small business for 12 years taught Kip how to balance a budget, make payroll, and navigate government red tape.
Kip has always worked hard, whether he was in the gym training for a fight or at a construction site building his company. Now, he wants to bring that work ethic to the Statehouse. As our district recovers from the Coronavirus and its economic consequences, Kip will work every single day to make sure our voice is heard.
