“IF WE DON’T STAND FOR SOMETHING, WE WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING.” - Irene Dunne on America’s Town Meeting of the Air (1945) WHO IS JOSH FLYNN? JOSH FLYNN is the youngest of 12 raised by two loving parents who were both active community leaders. His mother was a local business and real estate owner. His father was a local Baptist pastor and Austin community organizer as Northwest Austin Council (NAC) Board Member, CAPS member and United Front Organization member. It was from this tight-knit and deeply involved family that JOSH’s desire to help his community was forged. At an early age, JOSH became involved in the Junior Craft Mason organization and was also part of the 25th Police District Explorer’s (Scouts) program. JOSH graduated from Simeon High School and received his B.A. degree from Jarvis Christian College. For 20 years, JOSH has established himself as a strong family man, a successful small business owner (Insurance Professional), a non-partisan community organizer and activist. JOSH is Co-Director, Facilitator and Community Organizer for the new Northwest Austin Council and has volunteered to create or partnered with fellow community members to foster small business development training incubators to give our High School youth or unemployed the opportunity to build their own “American Dream”, not what others define, and not by going into deep debt through crazy college loans. JOSH is a dedicated, experienced and energetic champion of the diverse Illinois 78th District community at large, with a special outreach to small business development and to elevate the underrepresented to a place of political equality. JOSH has made it his mission to educate and engage fellow citizens through seminars, mentorship and access to resources to achieve more financial security and opportunity through a “hand up” not a “hand out”. JOSH’s leadership has helped pave the path for the hope and prosperity of families for generations to come. GOING FORWARD TOWARD NOVEMBER 3, 2020: JOSH is now asking you for your trust and support to extend this work across the 78th District and throughout Illinois as your State Representative. The 78th District is home to over 108,000 amazing diverse People and businesses. Located on the Northwest edge of Cook County, the 78th District includes the communities of Jefferson, Leyden, Oak Park and Proviso Townships, and the cities or villages of Chicago, Elmwood Park, Franklin Park, Melrose Park, Oak Park and River Grove.; and notably the historic Grand Avenue Business Corridor. While there are many important issues, the restoration of trust, integrity and accountability in our State government is JOSH’s top priority. We all know from the news that we have many State officials under investigation and our State finances are broken as a result of horrible management from past legislators, who now want to pile it all up on the backs of our People and our children, without any accountability for their wrongs. This must stop. With a main focus on comprehensive solutions, JOSH is bringing long needed “sober” oversight and transparency to both the budget and spending, and goes further to sponsor legislation that would forever provide binding statewide elections by the People at large to gain approval each time they are “threatened” with a new or raised tax. Further, every tax will have a 5 year “sunset” clause so that future legislators and the People can reconfirm their desire for it to continue. No more taxes to infinity. JOSH also recognizes that government pension reform has been absent of solid, thoughtful oversight and planning. Past dealings must be honored while future programs may be more innovative and beneficial, based on the needs and resources of the People. Not to be forgotten is the dire need for banking, student loan and home loan reform, with an emphasis on establishing the same rules in foreclosure or bankruptcy that apply to all other types of court cases. CONCLUSION AND REQUEST: At every level, JOSH is a voice for transparency in our government. JOSH will continue to fight for term limits, reducing legislative salaries; stopping legislative “double-dipping”, ending cronyism, ending the revolving door of legislators flipping to become corporate lobbyists and the end of legislative pensions among other passions shared by our community. JOSH feels that to be elected into the Illinois congress in the name of one’s community is a sacred service, honor and duty, not a way to “win the lottery” and get paid more than the average income of our community (plus expenses), for what amounts to a part-time job, all at the People’s expense. This must end. Until it ends, JOSH will continue to donate 20% of his state salary to the community missions he started in the 78th District to develop economic opportunity for individuals. JOSH has shown us his dedication towards helping our community for all of his adult life. JOSH now asks for us to trust and support him with our vote and donation to help continue on our behalf in Springfield. Please join in this quiet revolution. God Bless and Thank you!
