As a successful entrepreneur and job creator, Fran Flynn has the unique experience needed to keep America going. Rebuilding our economy can only happen if we change politics as usual. For Fran, the realization that for Washington to change new people have to step up, motivated her to run for Florida District 22 in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Fran Flynn lives her faith as a life-long champion of our most vulnerable citizens, the developmentally disabled, the elderly, cancer victims, the unborn, and people with special needs. Fran has been married to business entrepreneur, John Flynn, for 26 years. Together, they built two successful companies in the trucking and finance industry, providing ample employment opportunities in South Florida for over 30 years. They are active members of the South Florida community, supporting local faith-based initiatives and organizations such as ARC, Kids in Distress, Jacksonville School of Autism, Calvary Chapel, and Wounded Warriors.
Devastated by her niece’s diagnosis of Autism in 1992, Fran supported her family by researching, and purchasing a computer and programs to make life easier for a child who could not find a voice of her own. Fran is a strong advocate for families with autism and other disabilities and always fights for increased funding for families. Fran regularly visits the local nursing home conducting lunchtime Bible studies and impromptu visits to cheer up the residents. Most recently, Fran was a caregiver to her sister who lost her battle with pancreatic cancer. Fran’s experience invigorated her to advocate for patient informed consent and beneficial healthcare reform.
For Fran, knowing that no other candidate possesses her experience in business, finance, and supply chain solutions is why she is the best candidate to keep America going.
