(Fargo, ND) -- A current District 44 representative is looking to earn your vote in the upcoming General Election.
Josh Boschee has represented District 44 for the past 10 years, and is running again due to redistricting halfway through his current term. Boschee says he is excited to bring solution to issues like childcare and K-12 education, topics which the candidate says are high on his constituents' priority list.
"I don't know how many people I've talked to over the last several weeks, especially in which one of the parents has decided to stay home, "said Boschee, "Not because [the parent] wanted to, but because childcare was no longer available or childcare was no longer affordable."
Boschee also address what he calls a growing "extremism" within the Republican party, which he claims to have seen over the past decade. The representative says the GOP's positions on topics like Critical Race Theory and transgender athletes are showing that more new legislators are not listening to each other.
"What I have seen in the 10 years since I've served in Bismarck is the fact that there are more legislators coming to Bismarck that don't want to listen, "said Boschee, "They don't want to learn about other people's experiences, they think they have the answers...It's the Republican party who's in charge in North Dakota, it's them who are allowing this extremism to grow within their own party, and not hold them accountable to the reality of North Dakota."
