Meet Josh

Josh and his wife, Pam, live in Turlock, where Josh grew up and delivered newspapers for the Turlock Journal. Josh is currently serving his first term in Congress on behalf of families in the Central Valley where he’s fighting to protect our access to health care, create good-paying jobs, and reform our broken immigration system. He’s also focused on securing and growing the Valley’s water supply.

Josh is inspired by his parents, Mark and Linda, who met on a mission trip, and have lived a lifetime of service to their community. Josh picked up the family torch to bring the same spirit of service to Washington – where it’s desperately needed.

Josh's Priorities


Fight for Health Care in the Valley

I was raised right here in the Valley, and I know how important issues like affordable health care are to our families. When my brother needed surgeries as a child for his pre-existing condition, my parents could afford his treatment thanks to their health insurance.

Build a sustainable water future for the Central Valley

Water has been the critical issue for our community since my great-great-grandfather began farming in Manteca more than 170 years ago, and we will never solve our problems by shipping it to Southern California. 


Fair and humane immigration reform

The Central Valley is a land of immigrants. We have over 10,000 Dreamers in our community who are our friends, classmates, and neighbors – they’re American in every way but on paper. We should be providing them a pathway to citizenship.

The House could be decided right here in the Valley. So we need to build an enormous grassroots movement to win. Sign up to volunteer for #TeamHarder today!

Washington is broken and Valley families are suffering because of it. Most politicians in DC put special interests and their party bosses ahead of fixing our health care system, which means higher costs for premiums and prescription drugs. I’m doing it differently. I’m fighting to lower costs and increase access for our families.
