Candidate Bio

Joshua Flynn is a vibrant, energetic, experienced champion of the underserved in his community. For over a decade, he has been an organizer, activist, mentor and conduit of resources, creating opportunities and making an impactful difference in the lives of his neighbors.

Mr. Flynn is running for the office of State Representative, 78th district, in the state of Illinois, to represent and champion the needs of his community. District 78, in the city of Chicago, includes Leyden, Oak Park and Proviso townships, and the villages of Elmwood Park, Franklin Park, Melrose ark, Oak Park and River Grove. The district is home to over 108,000 residents.

Flynn is well-versed in the disparities facing African American communities, and has made it his mission to educate and engage citizens to attain more financial security and opportunity. As an experienced Insurance professional, Joshua has had a transformative effect on the lives of others through seminars, mentorship and providing resources, leaving a legacy for generations to come.

As an Austin native, Joshua has been interested in the welfare of his community since he was a young boy. Both of his parents were active community leaders - his mother as a local business and real estate owner, and his father as a local pastor, Austin community organizer, NAC (North Austin Council) Board Member, CAPS member and United Front Organization member. His tight-nit, deeply involved family encouraged Joshua’s interest in public service. In his youth, Joshua was involved in the Junior Craft Mason organization and also part of the 25th Police District Explorer’s program.

Flynn now works with several organizations in the Austin community and beyond - he is Co-Director and Community Organizer for the new North Austin Council, Facilitator and Recruiter at Get to Work Illinois, (GTW), a Mentor with BUILD, Honorable Committeeman of Black Workers Matter (BWM), Honorable 29th Ward Committeeman of the Libertarian Party, and a recent Inductee in the Rotary International Organization, headquartered in Evanston, IL.

Family values are at the heart of Joshua’s work. He credits his success to his upbringing, his love of people, and being a family man. His wife, a Doctoral candidate, and his two children are at the very core of all that he does, and he strives to shepherd his family in the same way he shepherds his community - by providing opportunity, education and resources. As State Representative, Joshua Flynn will be an intelligent, informed, tireless champion for everyone in his district.
