The choice is ours. We can march towards prosperity, or go backwards. Before we were Democrats and Republicans we were patriots, fighting for a representative democracy. Now, too many people don’t trust Washington. I’m running for Congress to restore faith in government and revive the American Dream through modern economic policies. I’m prepared for this challenge because I’ve been protecting America’s Constitution for years, in and out of uniform. Raised in a digital age, I started a small technology business. I won’t, and you shouldn’t, remain idle when our nation is threatened by enemies within and beyond our borders. Children deserve a great education, a new economy career path, a protected environment, and a trustworthy justice system. Get in the game. Support this campaign and show the world that America is still a beacon of hope in the world.

  • “My call to service is in direct response to a gridlocked Washington and a divided country that is becoming more divided. We have a responsibility to preserve the American Dream for all citizens.” In the 1970s, over three quarters of the House and Senate had military experience. In 2017, only 19% of the same group were veterans. This has paralleled a decline in both bipartisan cooperation and public confidence in our elected officials.

Welle is part of a new generation of veterans and politicians. 2018 voters are different, with new ideas and priorities, than when many lifelong politicians currently in office were elected. Veterans such as Welle represent this new generation of Americans who believe they can do so more effectively and on a larger scale in public office.

Josh hopes to prepare New Jersey to lead in today’s society. Modernizing infrastructure while creating economic growth, creating an affordable and sustainable healthcare system, and ensuring Americans are safe at home and abroad are issues he plans to take on. Leading the international efforts to combat climate change and terrorism are also important in his campaign. #Veteran @VetCampaign @withhonour @WithHonorFund #SecondService #NJ04
