PROFILE

November 3, 2020 by TWN Staff

About Harder: 

Josh Harder is running to represent California’s 10th Congressional District, located in California’s Central Valley covering Stanislaus County and parts of San Joaquin County. 

Harder’s family has been in the Central Valley for generations, since his great-great grandfather joined a wagon train in search of gold and stopped just short to start a peach farm in Manteca. 

As a member of the House Agriculture Committee, Harder focuses on ensuring the Central Valley’s vibrant agricultural community thrives. The Central Valley grows a third of the United States’ food supply, half the fruit and nuts in the nation, and hosts some of the most productive farming in the world.

Harder’s SAVE Water Resources Act will make a meaningful investment and add nearly 2 million acre-feet of water storage to grow and secure the Central Valley’s water supply. Harder also serves as a member of the Education and Labor Committee.

Growing up in Turlock, 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. 

Harder started his career in the private sector. He went to Kenya and Uganda where he helped small farmers access funding. After receiving a public policy and business degree from Harvard, he taught business at Modesto Junior College before entering public service. 

Harder lives in Turlock with his wife Pam and a rotating cast of foster dogs.
