Harder Saves Constituents More than $1 Million in First 2 Months of New Term
WASHINGTON — Today, Representative Josh Harder (CA-10) announced that his office has saved constituents more than $1 million in just the first two months of his second term in Congress. This brings Harder’s total savings on behalf of his constituents to $6,166,549.
“My office’s approach is pretty simple, we show up every day to help the people of Stanislaus and San Joaquin Counties and we don’t let red tape or government failure get in the way,” said Rep. Harder. “I’m proud that our team has been able to save our families more than $1 million in 2021 alone, and more than $6 million since I was first sworn into office. Our community needs this money now more than ever.”
Rep. Harder began his second term in office on January 4th, 2021. His office saved $1,084,374 for his constituents between that date and today, March 3rd, 2021. Members of Congress typically focus specifically on issues with federal agencies, but with extended unemployment and significant issues with the California Economic Development Department (EDD), Rep. Harder’s office team expanded to help people cut through red tape at that state agency. In addition to EDD, the agencies who owed Stanislaus and San Joaquin families the most were the IRS, the Social Security Administration, and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
