Committee Assignments


Born and raised in Minot, ND, Josh graduated from Bishop Ryan High School and attended North Dakota State University where he received a Bachelor's and Master's degrees. He is a Realtor and business leader who has helped build Hatch Realty, one of Fargo-Moorhead's top real estate brokerages known for providing innovative customer service and implementing technology to better serve their clients. Josh was elected to represent District 44 in the ND House of Representatives in 2012, flipping a seat that had been held by Republicans for over 20 years. He spent the four and a half months leading up to the election listening to the concerns and hopes that his north Fargo neighbors had for the future of North Dakota. Josh was able to engage with thousands of voters in a way that brought Republicans, Independents, Democrats and Libertarians to support his campaign. He continued listening to and engaging his constituents throughout his first term and was soundly re-elected in 2016 for another four-year term. While in Bismarck, Josh serves on the House Industry, Business and Labor Committee, the House Agriculture Committee, Administrative Rules Committee, Interim Government Finance Committee, Interim Economic Impact Committee and Interim Workers' Compensation Review Committee. The diversity of the policies discussed in these committees has allowed Josh to become well versed in the various perspectives that small business owners, family farmers, entrepreneurs and nonprofit leaders hold throughout the state. He is considered a leader within the Legislature who is willing to listen and partner with stakeholders to pass laws that move North Dakota forward. Josh Boschee for Secretary of StateWhen not serving in Bismarck or helping people buy and sell homes, Josh remains active in many local organizations. He just finished serving on the Board of Directors of the ND Council of Abused Women Services, is the past president of the FM Coalition for Homeless Persons, recently joined the Prairie Public Broadcasting Board of Directors and remains active with several other community organizations. As an Associate member of the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Josh represented the order at the United Nations Commission for Social Development for two weeks in New York City. Additionally, Josh has volunteered locally with Special Olympics, the American Red Cross, the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch, the ALS Association of Minnesota/North Dakota/South Dakota Chapter, New Generation North Dakota and Gladys Ray Shelter & Drop-In Center. His involvement in these organizations allows Josh to build relationships with individuals, employers, community groups, faith-based organizations and service providers that inform him of some of the issues we face locally and throughout the state. Since announcing his campaign in late January, Josh has traveled over 25,000 miles throughout the state and continues to connect with business owners, nonprofit leaders and family farmers from Williston to Wahpeton. Overwhelmingly, these North Dakotans want a Secretary of State who will modernize the office, be responsive to the needs of our diversifying economy and collaborate with stakeholders to implement efficiencies that save taxpayers' money.
