Candidate chants for victory In Jackson and Allentown–towns he called racist
The congressional candidate who proclaimed last winter that the people of Howell, Jackson, Allentown and Millstone “are not there yet” in the fight against racism and discrimination, this week visited Jackson and told his small group of supporters gathered in private home that there are enemies in this country lurking in food stores and restaurants.
Josh Welle, the young Virginia registered voter trying to turn his life around by getting elected to congress in New Jersey, told the guests of Jackson resident Henry Walker that he is one of 20-25 military veterans throughout the country who are running for congress “… because some of the enemies are here in our own country. “Now they don’t wear a uniform,” Welle said with bended knee, “and you don’t always know what the look like, but you can hear it,” he said as he used the international sign language gesture for crazy, “you can sense it at a food store or at a restaurant.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: 2018 elections, CD-4, Josh Welle Lies, Welle the Weasel | 3 Comments »

Questions of competence, compliance and character continue to dog Josh Welle, the Democrat of Rumson who voted in Virginia in 2016 and 2017, that is running against Congressman Chris Smith in the 4th Congressional District.
NewJerseyGlobe reported yesterday that Welle, blamed errors in his campaign finance disclosures to the Federal Election Commission on software issues and an email address that “the campaign no longer monitors.”
The NJGlobe report emphasized Welle’s proclivity for placing blame on others for his errors and implied that the mistakes addressed in the Welle campaign’s response to the FEC’s inquiry into the April 2018 Quarterly Report of Receipts and Disbursements were technicalities like a missing address or failing to allocate donations between the primary and general election campaigns.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: 2018 elections, CD-4, Josh Welle, Josh Welle Lies, Monmouth County News, Ocean County News | 3 Comments »

During a candidates forum last February while competing for the Democrat nomination to challenge Congressman Chris Smith, Josh Welle told Democrat activists that his company, Severn Pacific, Inc., doing business as Crossdeck, was dissolved in the spring of 2017.
But an officer of Harvard Business Services, Severn Pacific’s Delaware business agent told Patch that Welle’s company submitted an address change on March 3, 2017 . The company, which Welle was the CEO of, then ignored multiple notices from HBS to pay its 2017 taxes. The company was finally dissolved last week, after MMM reported the $130,000 past due taxes.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections | Tags: CD-4, Harvard Business Services, Josh Welle, Josh Welle's delinquent taxes, Micheal Bell, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, NJ 4, Severn Pacific Inc | 6 Comments »
