Saturday, August 2, The Modern Whig Party of America endorsed Josh Ramirez’s bid for Washington’s 4th US Congressional District. Ramirez, a US Army Airborne veteran and certified Project Management Professional (PMP), officially signed the Modern Whigs’ Code of Conduct and Ethics to earn the endorsement. “Our Code of Conduct is the only requirement we expect of our candidates and public officials,” said Andrew Evans, National Chairman of the Modern Whig Party. He continued, “we are proud to support [Ramirez] because of his focus on independent thinking and collaboration in public service. He proved himself a public servant in the military and the type Washington and America needs.”

Ramirez plans to focus on a 21st century educational system and ensuring that Washington’s economic environment is conducive to the needs of business and workers. The candidate believes reducing lobbyist influence and eliminating partisan primary elections will help Congress focus on the American people, vice campaign funding. Ramirez explained these values pushed him to opt for a third party. “The party’s Code of Conduct was especially refreshing,” explained Ramirez. “To know that there is a party who puts the people before corporate entities, and who’s only condition of endorsement is [to] abide by this Code of Conduct…boldly contrasts the behavior of the two major parties these days”.

The Modern Whig Party of America was founded by veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan in 2007, and officially launched in 2009. The organization is one of America’s fastest growing political parties. The core beliefs of the Modern Whig Party focus on independent thinking, integrity, collaboration, and using logic and reason instead of ideology to support policies.

Pasco Independent Announces Candidacy

for Washington’s 4th Congressional District

            Washington State has never had an Independent representative in Congress. This year Joshua Ramirez, a resident of Pasco, has decided that the people of his district have an opportunity to change that. On March 2nd, Joshua will officially announce his candidacy to serve the people of his district and the state of Washington. Under the banner of “Liberty, Love, and Equality” Josh Ramirez believes that partisanship can be defeated and sensible government once again made the standard.

Running under the Independent ticket, the foundation of the campaign is sending a message of unity and partnership. “We are all Americans who share this great land, and we need to remember that,” declares Mr. Ramirez. “It will take courage, it will mean stepping out of your comfort zone, it will mean opening your mind, and will sometimes require you to swallow your pride. But for your country, you can find common ground with your fellow countryman.”

Currently, Josh is using these principles as a foundation to address the issues he sees locally and nationally. One important focus of the campaign is the U.S. Trade Deficit and the effects of trade policy on unemployment and the economy. With the slogan “Reshore, Restore, Revitalize” he is spreading the message of stateside job growth. Through mutual respect and partnership of job creators and wage earners, Joshua trusts that the people in his district will have access to job growth and prosperity. Another major focus is to foster an environment right for problem solving. Leading by example, Josh is calling for a more inclusive political conversation, where the participants view themselves as partners instead of enemies.

Joshua brings with him a wealth of diversified experience and education, which helps him relate to the many different issues that the people of 4th District face.  He has a master’s degree in management, and some of his experience includes being a U.S. Army veteran, adjunct faculty at Columbia Basin College, an analyst at Hanford, a rancher and farmer, and working in construction.

As the campaign kicks into high gear, people interested in learning more or who want to get involved are asked to visit Josh’s official websites and social media feeds. Links provided below.

The campaign launch event and meet-and-greet will be held this Sunday, March 2nd, at 11 am at the Wingstop in Pasco.
