Brian Flynn is a lifelong progressive and small business owner. He has spent his entire adult life fighting, effectively, for the type of progressive change that makes a real difference in people’s lives. A third-generation Greene County resident, his grandfather – along with his family, fled to America to escape religious and economic persecution – and settled in the “Irish Alps” of the Catskill Mountains.
Brian’s activism emerged from a very personal event almost 30 years ago. His big brother, JP, was killed in the 1988 Pan Am 103 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland. When the government wasn’t being forthcoming with the victims’ families about the cause of the attack, Brian, just 19 years old, drove to Washington DC to get justice for the victims. He was just a teenager but he learned, early on, that when you see something wrong, you have to do something about it.
