Biography

Representative Josh Boschee was first elected to the North Dakota House of Representatives in 2012 and re-elected for his third term in November 2020. When elected, Josh was the first openly LGBTQ+ policy-maker elected to the legislature. Josh spent most of 2018 running to be North Dakota’s 15th Secretary of State. While he didn’t win that race, he was elected by his fellow caucus members to serve as the House Minority Leader for three legislative sessions. Before serving in legislative leadership, Representative Boschee served on the House Industry, Business, and Labor Committee and the House Agriculture Committee. Now he spends most of his time on state budget-related issues, supporting the priorities of the Democratic-NPL caucus and partnering with other legislative leaders and the Governor to pass policies that improve opportunities for North Dakotans. When he’s not representing his North Fargo constituents in Bismarck, Josh serves as the Broker for Real Broker LLC, leading a team of over 120 real estate agents and support professionals throughout North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota. Before he jumped into real estate, Josh worked in Student Affairs for eight years at NDSU and MSUM, where he found his passion for helping people establish, implement, and achieve their goals. An avid fan of everything downtown Fargo, in his free time, you can find Josh enjoying the food, sounds, and life along Broadway. A veteran of many Fargo area nonprofit and community boards, he currently serves on the Board of Advisors for the College of Arts and Sciences at North Dakota State University.
