Josh Clark Pledges No Stock Ownership While In Senate
Flowery Branch, GA: On February 2, the Josh Clark for U.S. Senate campaign announced that Josh and Chelsey Clark had sold their stock assets. Both Republicans and Democrats in Congress have found themselves embroiled in ‘insider trading’ scandals, including a particularly shocking tens of millions in profits linked to Speaker Nancy Pelosi. While Congress debates, Josh Clark took personal action.
“Public servants should be just that: in service to their constituents, not their own pocketbooks,” Clark said in early February. “I take the role of elected office seriously, and I will not use the influence of office to my own profit. My wife Chelsey and I have sold all of our stock assets as of February 2nd. I pledge to the people of Georgia that I will not participate in stock trading or financially benefit from insider knowledge while serving in the U.S. Senate. Having the trust of voters is a solemn responsibility. We are given the consent of the governed to deliver results and stability for We the People, not deliver power and money to ourselves.”
Josh Clark believes that public office in America ought to be a season of service, not a career for profit. For this reason, he stepped down after two terms in the Georgia House though he was unopposed.
Clark said, “It’s time to take action against those who use government knowledge to accumulate wealth on insider trades. In the Senate, I will lead that fight for transparency and accountability from all members. I ask for the vote of all Georgians in this Senate election so we can get to work cleaning up government!”
Josh Clark is a business owner, former two-term Georgia State Rep., and recognized Defender of Liberty who is running for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. Josh was raised with the American values of faith in God, hard work & serving others. He resides on a small farm in Hall County with his wife Chelsey and their six children.
