Today, Kathy Miller’s campaign for State Assembly announced that Congressman Josh Harder has thrown his support behind Miller.
Congressman Harder said: “Kathy Miller is exactly the kind of leader we need right now. I know Kathy will fight for good-paying jobs, access to healthcare, and relief for families affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic. Kathy will be an important ally in protecting the Delta and water access for our farmers. I’m proud to stand with Kathy Miller for State Assembly and I look forward to continuing to work with her to get things done for the Valley.”
Congressman Josh Harder was first elected to Congress in 2018 and has been a strong advocate for lower health care costs, good paying jobs, and innovative solutions to bring more water to families and farmers. Harder’s family has deep roots in the Central Valley, since his great-great grandfather joined a wagon train in search of gold and stopped just short to start a peach farm in Manteca. Harder worked as a paper boy at the Turlock Journal, attended Modesto High School, and earned scholarships from the local Rotary Club and the American Legion to attend Stanford University. After receiving a public policy and business degree from Harvard, he taught business at Modesto Junior College before entering public service.
“It means a great deal to have the support of one of our region’s most dedicated public servants, Congressman Josh Harder,” said Kathy Miller.“Congressman Harder and I share a fundamental commitment to delivering for our region’s families, ensuring they can emerge from our current crisis not only whole, but in the best position to thrive once again. In the Assembly, I will always stand up so our everyone in our region has a voice in the decisions impacting their daily lives.”
