Josh Shapiro for Governor
As a State Representative, Josh wrote and passed some of the toughest ethics laws in state history. Philadelphia Magazine wrote that Josh “has been a blast of oxygen in the smoke-choked back rooms of quid-pro-quo Harrisburg,” and his work earned him a national reputation as a bipartisan consensus builder.
Then, as Chairman of the Montgomery County Commissioners, he led a fiscal and ethical turnaround, took early steps to combat the heroin epidemic, helped the first LGBT couples in Pennsylvania marry and fired Wall Street money managers to save retirees millions. His work on behalf of victims and for criminal justice reform as the Chairman of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency has earned him the trust of law enforcement leaders from both parties.
Josh’s office’s release of an extensive grand jury report alleging the sexual abuse of children at the hands of 300 “predator priests” in six Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania garnered attention around the globe. More recently, Mr. Shapiro sued Pittsburgh-based health care giant UPMC for restricting access to its doctors and facilities as a result of its years-long battle with rival Highmark.
Josh Shapiro earned his law degree at night from Georgetown University, and is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar. Josh was raised in Montgomery County, where he met his high school sweetheart, Lori, and where they are raising their four young children.
