PA Attorney General
Montgomery County Commissioner
As a public servant, Josh has earned a reputation as a reformer, a leader with integrity, an effective legislator and a can-do executive.
Montgomery County’s first majority Democratic Board Chair in more than 140 years, Josh has led the effort to clean up county government and put the fiscal house of Pennsylvania’s third largest county in order. His efforts to reform Montgomery County have made government more efficient and effective, as he delivered consecutive budget surpluses after years of deficits prior to his election. As Commissioner, Shapiro led the way for significant investments in infrastructure, education and public safety while reducing overall debt and standing up for progressive values. He was first elected to the post in 2011 and reelected in 2015 with the highest vote total in the history of the county.
