North Dakota House of Representatives
Representative Josh Boschee was first elected to the ND House of Representatives in 2012 and re-elected for his second term in November 2016. Josh spent most of the last year running to be North Dakota’s 15th Secretary of State. This past December, he was elected by his fellow caucus members to serve as the House Minority Leader.
Representative Boschee's legislative focus has been on passing a fully inclusive, statewide nondiscrimination statute, increasing opportunities for North Dakota small businesses, enhancing early childhood education and childcare services throughout the state, campaign finance reform, expanding access to local foods and developing a statewide commitment to moving North Dakotans out of poverty.
When he's not representing his north Fargo constituents in Bismarck, Josh serves as the Sales Manager for Hatch Realty, leading a team of 20 real estate agents. Before he jumped into real estate, Josh worked in Student Affairs for eight years at NDSU and MSUM, where he found his passion for helping people establish, implement and achieve their goals.
