Western Pennsylvania born and bred, Josh Kail is a leader who shares our values, respects our traditions, and believes in our future. A husband, father of six, and resident of Beaver, Josh and his family live, work and attend church in the 15th district. He has long understood the need to control taxes while modernizing education, to put an end to job-killing overregulation, and the need to apply common sense solutions to our state’s problems.
Josh has promised to bring integrity and professionalism to the state House.
A graduate of Geneva College and Regent University School of Law, Josh Kail has built a solid record of private-and-public-sector achievement. He works as an attorney representing small and midsized businesses and has lent his hand to work as a solicitor for various boroughs along with service for Beaver County’s Children and Youth Services.
“I plan to be a salesman for my district, showing companies that the western Pennsylvania work ethic is unmatched, and its people the best fit for new industries,” Josh says. "Whether its about local jobs, making sure our children are educated for new industry, or fighting the opioid epidemic, this campaign is about one thing: keeping families together. For far too long we have exported Western Pennsylvania talent to the rest of the country. It’s time we focus on what unites us and keep moving forward in the 15th district."
Chief among his goals is to build on the region’s burgeoning energy sector, which has brought thousands of jobs to Pennsylvania and promises to multiply that number with the arrival of the Shell petrochemical plant in Beaver County. Leveraging the new infrastructure and industry to encourage other business to enter the local market is a top priority for Josh.
But new industry brings new demands in education. That’s why he remains a strong advocate for expanded education in the STEM fields – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Josh understands that to ensure a stable future for our children and grandchildren a “one size fits all” approach to education will not work.
“Every child is different,” he says. “Giving students and parents more choice in talent development will make our kids more valuable entering the local job market, and offer more fulfilling and well-rounded lives.”
Pro-Second Amendment, Pro-Life, and Pro-Jobs, Josh Kail will work in Harrisburg to protect personal liberty. Josh is committed to changing the culture of the Capital by bringing western Pennsylvania values to Harrisburg.
