Roy Cho is a 2014 Democratic candidate seeking election to the U.S. House to represent the 5th Congressional District of New Jersey.[1] He won the Democratic nomination in the primary on June 3, 2014.


Campaign themes


Cho lists the following themes on his campaign website:

  • Economy: "We should provide tax incentives to the American businesses that need them and get rid of tax loopholes that prevent small and medium-sized businesses from effectively competing in the marketplace. We need to encourage American businesses to continue to take risks and innovate and we need trade policies that protect American workers and export our goods abroad. And we need to start making things again by supporting American manufacturers.
    Investing in clean energy makes sense not only for environmental reasons but because of the enormous job-creating opportunities that exist in that sector. We need bold and creative policies that encourage American entrepreneurship."
  • Infrastructure: "Investing in transportation infrastructure is a perfect avenue for encouraging cooperation between public and private sector actors and putting Americans to work on projects that reap long-term rewards and benefits. We need to encourage private investment in our public infrastructure as increasing transportation efficiency in the congressional district will create jobs, ease traffic congestion, decrease our environmental footprint and increase the property value of homes in the district.
    We should also focus on improving our telecommunications infrastructure so that a strong framework exists for college graduates to not only compete for existing jobs but to create new ones and take full advantage of the incredible technological advances we are experiencing everyday. Whether it is pushing for broadband access on public transportation or increasing connectivity in public spaces, I hope to bring forward-thinking policies to Washington, DC that ensure that our next generation of leaders are given the tools they need to successfully compete."
  • Education: "We need to ensure that our hardworking and high-performing teachers are being provided with the professional development, rewards and respect that they deserve. We also have a responsibility to ensure that the curricula being taught in classrooms is innovative, dynamic and tailored to the context-specific needs of our children. More importantly, we need to address the skills mismatch that exists in the American jobs marketplace and ensure that our students are being adequately prepared to join the workforce of tomorrow."


—Roy Cho, [3]
