From the time Joe Webster was 18 years old, he has been going above and beyond to serve our country. Upon graduating from the Air Force Academy, he furthered his education at the Naval War College, and has served as a Colonel in the Air Force. He also obtained his PhD in Public Policy from George Washington University.
Joe spent 20 years working at the Pentagon, involved with special government projects and serving as a legislative liaison between Congress and the military. He was also there when the Pentagon was attacked on September 11, 2001, and managed a modernization program for the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve forces as they deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq. He went on to serve in 32 different countries.
Joe has also worked as a high-level educator, teaching Speech Communications, Executive Writing and Western Civilizations/Values at the US Air Force Academy. He also teaches National Security Policy for the Air University in Montgomery, AL. He understands that education is the foundation for our communities, and is dedicated to ensuring that all students get the support and funding they need to succeed.
In 2004, Joe began a new career in business development/customer relations with a small start-up company in King of Prussia, and then as a VP of Mission Services for a global 500 company. He also founded Convergence Music, a nonprofit that specializes in event management and promotion through volunteerism and fundraising. In 2017, Convergence Music donated 100% of its Tall Trees Music Festival proceeds to Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Joe’s experience both in the military and as a public policy analyst have led him to understand our gun violence problem as rooted in our easy access to military-grade weapons. He also is passionate about election reform, as every Pennsylvanian deserves his or her voice to be heard freely and fairly. In addition, accessible health care, the protection of our environment, and equal rights for all are non-negotiables that all citizens deserve.
