I am Joshua Schoonover, a Patent Attorney and small business owner.

Each day I counsel individuals and business clients seeking to develop and protect new products, build businesses, make money, hire employees, and contribute to the economy. I know the difficulties encountered when seeking to earn a living and grow a business. 

I am a conservative who believes in individual freedom, personal accountability, smaller government, lower taxes, and a strong military.

My father-in-law escaped communist Hungary in the 1970's, risking his life as he swam across the bay of Trieste (Yugoslavia). He was offered an opportunity to enlist in the U.S. Army, where he earned an education and his U.S. citizenship. He went on to finish a graduate degree and retire as a Major in the Marines. I know the value of legal immigration and how it it facilitates the American dream when done right. I also know that we must fix the problem of illegal immigration. We should welcome those who seek to come to America legally, willing and motivated to work hard, assimilate and contribute to our society. However, the government has an obligation to provide a common defense against those who seek to unlawfully trespass and usurp American resources. My stance on DACA and illegal immigration can be summarized as: "Those who contribute are 'In', criminals and those who pose a burden are 'Out'!"

I have been blessed with a beautiful wife, my college sweetheart Erika, and an angel from heaven my daughter Annika Brielle. I know what is truly important in life.

I will add value to Congress as a true innovator, scientist, lawyer and head of a young family. I will hold regular town hall meetings, read your emails and letters, listen to my constituents, study and inform you about legislation, and represent you well.

I strongly support Congressional term limits, and have even drafted a Constitutional Amendment that will effectively remove the conflict of interest which has prevented Congress from passing similar legislation in the past.

I support President Trump's Budget. I think Congress needs to be fiscally responsible, and I think we must eliminate wasteful spending.

I support President Trump's National Security Strategy, a strong and well-funded military, and peace through strength.

Despite what the mainstream media tells you, this District does support Pres. Trump's policies! So do I!

I have new ideas for restructuring the framework of our healthcare system, effectively reducing overhead and making healthcare more affordable while concurrently growing the economy and creating jobs.

I hope to earn your support come election day with my ability to think outside the box and develop practical solutions to urgent problems, and with my reputation for integrity and family values.

A vote for me is a vote to Drain the Swamp, enact congressional term limits, and implement disruptive competition for a better economy and a healthcare system that works.

Please support and endorse my campaign so that together we can make a difference for future generations of Americans.

Schoonover | Campaign Launched & Underway

Hi Friends and Neighbors,

We have officially announced the campaign, filed paperwork with the FEC, began signature gathering efforts, and are about to launch fundraising efforts. (heads-up, we need donations and will be calling soon)

If you can support a fresh Representative in Congress, who supports the President's budget, National Security Strategy, and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA), is not a "Career Politician", owes nothing to special interests, is for #TermLimits, supports businesses, has practical and fiscally conservative solutions to Illegal Immigration and lowering costs of Healthcare, is smart and energetic, and will actually go to work each day, then you know what to do on June 5, 2018.

We look forward to coming to a location near you and getting to know each other better.

Please help with a contribution to the campaign, and endorse Joshua Schoonover for Congress.
