New Legislator Spotlight: Congressman Josh Harder (D-Turlock)

April 15, 2019

In each issue of our CLSA Bulletin, we will highlight a new member of California’s seven-member “freshman class” in the 116th Congress.

On behalf of our membership and California’s statewide life sciences community – a sector which employs over 311,000 Californians – California Life Sciences Association (CLSA) welcomes Congressman Josh Harder (D-Turlock). We look forward to working with Congressman Harder and his team to advance policies that improve patient health and bring positive change for California patients and their families.


Josh Harder proudly represents California’s 10th Congressional district, located in the northern region of the San Joaquin Valley and covering all of Stanislaus County and part of San Joaquin County.

Josh was first elected to office in November of 2018. He is proud to represent the same community his family has called home for five generations.

Prior to serving in office, Josh was a businessman and taught at Modesto Junior College. He is a graduate of Modesto High School and earned degrees from Stanford and Harvard University.
