In these unprecedented times, the Fifth District needs a leader who truly reflects his constituents’ ideals and pursues meaningful improvement in the lives of its residents. Growing up in the Fifth District and witnessing how our counties continue to change and improve, I realized the importance of electing representatives who enable such progress to continue. Josh Gottheimer is one of those leaders and I urge everyone to vote for him in November.

In Congress, Gottheimer has fought for the best interests of his constituents. He has been a forceful advocate for lowering taxes and creating jobs, for fixing our roads, bridges, and tunnels. He has fought for students, for equal rights for women, and for the LGBTQ+ community and religious minorities like myself.

Gottheimer is a voice for the people -- a leader who understands that his job is to represent his community. I will be proud to vote for him.
