Meet Flynn D. Broady Jr.

Candidate for Congress Georgia's - 11th Congressional District

The focus of my life and prior generations of my family, has emphasized the importance of SERVICE to this great nation.  As a third-generation Army veteran, I served for 26 years, which included two overseas assignments and deployment with Operation Iraqi Freedom. During this campaign, I had the honor to serve as First Sergeant of Alpha Company 1/6 INF, where I had 157 men under my command. 

This legacy of SERVICE to our country began with my grandfather, who served as part of the Redball Express in WWII, and my father, who spent 20 years in the Army.  Both my grandfather and father taught me to respect our country and emphasized the importance of SERVICE to maintain our freedom, protect our citizens, and improve this country.

My military career and being raised within a family that moved multiple times to follow my father’s Army career, taught me the meaning of sacrifice and the need for leaders who are going to put aside their self-interest, empower their constituents, and prove leadership that benefits ALL citizens, not just a favored few.  

In between deployments I took advantage of the educational opportunities the GI Bill offered me.  I completed an undergraduate degree in Public Management from Austin Peay University, a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Kennesaw State University, and a Juris Doctorate from the Seton Hall School of Law.

After passing the Bar Exam in November 2008, I first began serving the citizens of Cobb County as an Assistant Solicitor General in the office of Barry Morgan, the Solicitor General.  This position gave me courtroom, mediation, and judicial experience, which are necessary to understand the challenges and complexities of our legal system.

During 2014, Cobb County implemented a Veterans Accountability and Treatment Court, which focuses on assisting local veterans who have encountered legal issues due to substance abuse, unresolved PTSD, or anger issues.  This innovative program allows veterans to receive treatment for these mental health challenges, and once again become productive members of society. 

As the former Court Coordinator for the Cobb County Veterans Treatment Court, my experience as an Army veteran gave me both insight as to the challenges and awareness of the unaddressed needs of our veterans.  During my two years with the Cobb County Veterans Treatment Court, I fulfilled a desire to SERVE and give back to our veterans.  Veterans are an underappreciated and underserved segment of our society, and they will be of specific focus to me, if I am elected your District 11 Congressman.

At the end of 2017, I returned to the Solicitor General’s Office and currently serve as the Prosecutor for the Cobb County DUI Court.  This is one of many newly-implemented “Accountability Courts” both locally and in other equally as progressive-thinking areas of our country for offering offenders treatment versus just incarceration.

At the end of 2017, my father passed away unexpectedly, just a week prior to my marriage to Leslie “Monique” Martin, now Monique Broady, a long-time employee of Wells Fargo. My 23-year-old daughter Victoria, from a prior marriage, is a recent graduate of Armstrong State University in Savannah, where she majored in Health Administration. 

Monique and I live just a few blocks away from the Marietta Square, where we enjoy exploring all of what the area offers for dining, performing arts, and the many weekend festivals.
