Food & Water Action Endorses Josh Welle for Congress

October 10, 2018

Food & Water Action, the political arm of the national advocacy organization Food & Water Watch, is endorsing Josh Welle in New Jersey’s 4th Congressional District race.

The district’s current Republican representative has not done enough to fight President Trump’s agenda, which threatens the health of our most vulnerable citizens and our environment.

Josh Welle, who brings bold and new ideas to tackle climate change and other threats to our environment, earned the group’s endorsement based on his opposition to offshore drilling, fracking for oil & gas, and his support for the Off Fossil Fuels Act, the strongest climate and clean energy bill in the country.

“We are building a clean energy movement in New Jersey that will counter the pro-corporate Trump administration. Josh Welle is the kind of leader we need to send to Washington to fight for clean air, clean water, and a livable climate,” said Food & Water Action organizer Junior Romero.

The OFF Act, which calls for 100% renewable energy by the year 2035, has been endorsed by a number of progressive Democrats running in Congressional races across the country, including Jess King and Randy Bryce. The legislation is co-sponsored by dozens of members of Congress, including New Jersey’s Bonnie Watson Coleman.
