Democratic congressional candidate Josh Welle has received endorsements from several local leaders in his bid to unseat Rep. Chris Smith (R-Hamilton).
Backing Welle, a former U.S. Navy officer, are: Bradley Beach Democratic Chairman Steve Lozowick; Farmingdale Democratic Chairman Beau Byrtus; former Neptune Township Mayor Jim Manning; and Steve Clayton, a member of the Ocean Township Democratic Executive Committee.
“Josh has a new, clear, and clean voice for the Democratic Party here in the 4th. There is no doubt in my mind he will represent us with integrity and competence in the House of Representatives. He is my choice for Congress in 2018,” Lozowick said.
Byrtus praised Welle’s leadership skills.
“Right now, the American people don’t need party representatives,” said Byrtus. “They need leaders. Josh is the candidate in this Congressional race that will put the people first by working on solutions that will lead to prosperity and truly realize the potential of the 4th District. He understands that no representative works alone.”
