U.S. House of Representatives- Congressman Gottheimer District Office
- New Jersey
Josh Gottheimer represents New Jersey's Fifth Congressional District in the northernmost part of the state, which includes parts of Bergen, Passaic, Sussex and Warren counties. He was sworn in on January 3, 2017.
Josh serves on the House Financial Services Committee where he works on three Subcommittees: the Capital Markets, Securities, and Investments Subcommittee, the Oversight and Investigation Subcommittee, and the Terrorism and Illicit Finance Subcommittee. In February, Josh was elected Co-Chair of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, where he brings Members together across party lines and finds areas of agreement on key issues like lowering taxes, cutting burdensome and unnecessary regulation, and improving infrastructure to help the American people.
Josh’s approach to public service is rooted in his experience in both the public and private sectors. During his time working with President Clinton, Senator Frank Lautenberg, and Speaker Thomas Foley, he saw that, by seeking common ground, it’s possible to find a bipartisan path forward without compromising your core values. Josh firmly believes that it doesn’t matter if an idea comes from the Democratic or Republican side of the aisle, only whether it will help the communities and people of the Fifth District.
In Congress, Josh is focused on lowering taxes; cutting unnecessary and out-of-date regulations; making sure that New Jersey taxpayers receive a solid return on investment on the federal tax dollars they send to Washington; fighting for education, transportation, veterans' care, and first responders; and standing up for Jersey values.
