About Janak Joshi

"I am an optimist. My underlying philosophy of conservative common sense is shaped from a strong family, from my experience being welcomed to America, and from a core belief that we all have a God-given right to make as much of our lives as possible.

The prime responsibility of political leadership is to make policies that encourage people to be happy, healthy and productive."
