Through the years, Josh has kept busy in the community volunteering with Kiwanis, Midwest Food Bank, The Baby Fold, Boys & Girls Club, Illinois Symphony Orchestra, Holy Trinity Catholic Church, McLean County Chamber of Commerce, and countless others. In 2015, Josh was named one of Bloomington-Normal’s “20 Under 40” for his contributions to the community.
In 2011, Mayor Steve Stockton appointed Josh to the city Beautification Committee. He served four years on that body including a one and a half years as chairman. Mayor Tari Renner then appointed Josh to the Planning Commission where he helped contribute to, and pass, Bring it on Bloomington, the city’s award-winning comprehensive plan. In mid-2016, Josh was appointed to the McLean County Board representing Bloomington’s east side. He went on to win a full-term that November.
On the McLean County Board, Josh has been a steadfast voice for transparency in local government and greater citizen access. His efforts led to county board meetings being streamed online and archived for citizens viewing. He has also been a strong voice for
common-sense fiscal policies and good stewardship of taxpayer dollars. Today, Josh serves on the board’s Property Committee and Transportation Committee.
Josh knows the needs of Bloomington and the people of District 10. He is a proven community steward who is not afraid to work hard and fight for the interests of the people he represents. For Josh, it is about public service, not politics.
