Josh Welle for Congress in CD 4
MADISON, NJ, June 1, 2018 – Josh Welle, congressional candidate for congressional district 4 has earned the endorsement from Action Together New Jersey (ATNJ), the largest progressive grassroots group in the state.
“I’m honored to earn the support of Action Together New Jersey (ATNJ), an organization dedicated to grassroots civic engagement and making the American Dream inclusive to all. Veterans protected the Constitution abroad and now in the age of divisiveness, we must work together to defend civil liberties and preserve equal justice at home. Our team looks forward to working with their members to flip the 4th district and put service first!”,” said Josh Welle.
Josh Welle grew up in Wall Township, is a 2002 Annapolis graduate, Afghanistan veteran, and Commander in the Navy Reserve. He has been deployed five times across the world working on peacekeeping missions abroad. Josh holds three master’s degrees including a Masters in Public Administration from the Harvard Kennedy School and is the former founder of a software company. He has secured the endorsement of all three county Democratic committees in the 4th District and is prepared to unseat 37-year incumbent Chris Smith.
“Action Together New Jersey is proud to endorse Josh Welle for Congress because he will invest in a green economy, defend our schools and communities from gun violence with common sense reforms, and advocate for Medicare-for-all. Josh’s 12 years of active-duty in the Navy, working his way up to the rank of Lieutenant Commander has unquestionably shown his dedication to our nation and his unwavering commitment for everyone to reach the American Dream. He has protested offshore drilling, started and managed his own small business, and been adamant about women’s right to accessible and affordable health services. We’re eager to mobilize our grassroots network for a leader who will put service first and defend our shared Jersey Shore values,” said Uyen “Winn” Khuong, Executive Director, Action Together New Jersey.
