On Wednesday, May 13, we conducted a virtual Informed Progressive meeting with Josh Remillard, Candidate NC 117, as our featured speaker. Josh outlined his background including two combat tours of duty to Iraq and one tour to Germany. After his military service, he enrolled in college in Washington state and, upon obtaining his degree, returned with his family to NC. When he got home, he saw many issues that troubled him including the need for better representation in District 117, and decided to run for elected office.
Josh discussed the need for Medicaid expansion in NC, support of public education, and protection of our environment focusing on environmental sustainability. Josh works in quality control at Gaia Herbs. He is currently involved in Team Rubicon (a volunteer organization made up of mostly military veterans and first responders who help families hit by disasters), Aura Home for Homeless Female Veterans and Mountain True. Josh lives with his wife Rhiannon and two daughters in Mills River.
