Jim Moynihan is a 27-year resident of the Village of Schaumburg and a financial advisor associated with Wayne Messmer & Associates.
Jim’s background includes over 20 years of successful leadership and management experience, including serving as a Section Chief at the Illinois Department of Transportation (CATS), owning and operating a small business, and working with and within a variety of organizations ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small and mid-sized companies. Jim has the depth and diversity of experience needed to bring a fresh prospective to the Village Board, challenge the status quo, and drive efficient budgeting decisions.
Raised by a single mother who worked hard but struggled financially, Jim learned early in life the importance of fiscal responsibility and ensuring an economic climate in which all of our families, and the next generation, can succeed.
Jim graduated with High Honors and earned a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Northeastern Illinois University. Jim recently ran for Illinois State Representative from the Schaumburg area as a family and taxpayer advocate focused on controlling state spending and reducing the excessive tax burden on all of our families. Although he came up a little short in that effort, Jim has heard from too many Schaumburg residents who are concerned about taxes and spending to sit back and do nothing. Jim remains committed to finding ways to reduce your tax burden through efficient budgeting decisions and a complete elimination of the Village of Schaumburg property tax passed in 2009.
Jim and his wife Joni reside in Schaumburg and are the proud parents of three adult children: a District 211 high school teacher, a Chicago police officer, and a banker. Jim is involved in a variety of civic and professional organizations, including UNICO National, the country’s largest Italian-American service organization, the Pitch and Hit Club of Chicago, the Schaumburg Business Association, and the Schaumburg Township Republican Organization.
