MEET JOSH McBROOM
Josh McBroom is a financial expert and community leader who will protect what makes Naperville special to ensure our community remains the best place to live, work, and raise a family.
As a Naperville-based financial advisor, McBroom has served local families and businesses for over 17 years. He has a proven track record of listening and understanding people’s goals and developing a strategic plan to help them achieve their vision in the most fiscally responsible way. This has given McBroom unparalleled experience dealing with budgets and long-term financial planning.
Encouraged by many to seek public office, McBroom was elected to the Naperville Park District Board in 2019. He ran on a platform of responsible leadership and has fulfilled that promise by voting against every tax levy increase that did not keep the overall tax rate flat for Naperville taxpayers. He quickly earned a reputation as a constituent advocate who fought for the right of Naperville residents to use park district assets when arbitrary shutdowns threatened the health and well-being of our community. It was here that he learned how good government can work, and how important it is to our daily lives.
McBroom has been proud to call Naperville home for over 20 years and has been an active member of the community. He serves on the Business Works Committee and is part of TEAM B2B within the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce. He has served on the board or as board president for multiple homeowner associations, the Maplebrook Swim and Racquet Club, Linden Oaks, and Edward Elmhurst Ventures. McBroom volunteered as the Maplebrook Swim Club treasurer and was a volunteer basketball, soccer, and baseball coach throughout the Naperville youth sports programs.
Through McBroom’s involvement with the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce, he led an effort to enhance the organization’s networking and philanthropic footprint by adding a community volunteerism component to its mission. In 2010, they partnered with KidsMatter to envision an annual gala which endures to this day. McBroom went on to serve as a trustee and president of the KidsMatter board.
Josh and his wife, Emily, have three sons who are all enrolled in Naperville schools. His wife is a former special education teacher at Naperville Indian Prairie D204 and is currently an assistant teacher at Maplebrook Elementary. Josh, Emily, and the boys enjoy spending time outdoors with their dog, Lulu. They have been active in local churches and currently attend The Compass Church.
