Josh Welle wanted to hit pay dirt with the technology company, Severn Pacific Inc, he started in the 2015. He told his supporters at a campaign rally in Neptune (advertised as a Town Hall) on Wednesday night that he planned to be CEO of the the next facebook when the launched the company.
Josh Welle is in a tough spot politically. At worst, he misled congressional ethics officials about a business of his that just resolved a six-figure tax-delinquency bill. At best, he set up the firm lacking a basic understanding of how to manage it.
The Daily Beast is hardly an “ultra-right wing” publication like Welle called MMM. Prior to this story, the only thing the Daily Beast and MMM agreed on is that Oliva Nuzzi is a great writer.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News | Tags: 2018 elections, Daily Beast, Josh Welle, Josh Welle's delinquent taxes, Lachlan Markay, PAY DIRT, Severn Pacific Inc | 8 Comments »

Josh Welle has been avoiding our phone calls, until this morning, but still won’t say what’s happening with the company he is apparently CEO of, Severn Pacific Inc.
