Meet Wendell Mosby
Get to know the man behind the movement, his life, what he stands for, and what his plans are for our country!
Wendell Mosby is a proud resident of Schererville where he lives with his wife and six-year old son, who attends an area elementary school. Although Wendell was born and raised in Illinois, he traveled out of state to attend Iowa State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Production Management.
Wendell was an elected Trustee on the Board at Prairie State Community College serving a 6-year term. Wendell has also attained tremendous achievements as the Illinois State Director for the Young Elected Officials Network (2013-15); Chairman of the Illinois African-American Family Commission (2016) and ran several successful campaigns.
As a lifelong Democrat with over 25 years of public service, Wendell has remained committed to helping others from all walks of life. Just as he has served everywhere, he’s been, whether across the state of Illinois or now throughout Northwest Indiana; he will continue this fight for equal representation, justice and opportunity as Congressman for the First District.
“I’m running for Congress because the Region’s economy is changing and we need a transformative leader like myself with 21st-century solutions to address the challenges ahead.”
“I’m running for Congress because we need a leader who will fight for an equitable education for all.”
How We Prepare the Next Generation
As the Senior Vice President Special Projects at BLUE 1647, I recruited strategic partners to expand our national footprint while working closely with municipal leaders to address technology workforce development needs. During that time, I created a hackathon series called Code BLUE USA. We hosted events in California, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Missouri, New York, Rhode Island, and Utah.
