Congressman Johnson touts record of results, predicts re-election
ATLANTA--Today, Congressman Hank Johnson formally filed to run for re-election. Joined by wife Mereda Davis Johnson and mother Christine Callier, the congressman filed his qualifying papers at the Georgia State Capitol.
"I am confident that when the voters look at my record as a Strong and Effective Voice for the Fourth District fighting for small businesses, consumers and middle-class and working people they will know that they can count on me to work for them, not big corporations or lobbyists and Washington power brokers who would like to call the shots in Congress," said Rep. Johnson. "They will realize that I am the person who can keep bringing the type of improvement to the district that results in good paying jobs and a better quality of life for all our citizens."
Rep. Johnson, who is seeking his fifth term, is a member of the House Judiciary and Armed Services Committees and the ranking member on the House Judiciary subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust.
Since 2007, Rep. Johnson has helped bring more than $250 million to the district for schools, roads and police. From his main district office in Lithonia, he has worked to help secure more than $32 million for constituents seeking help with specific federal agencies.
"I am proud of my strong record in Congress and look forward to meeting new voters and constituents and continuing to work for the people of Georgia's Fourth Congressional District," Johnson said.
Georgia's Fourth Congressional District includes portions of DeKalb, Gwinnett and Newton counties and all of Rockdale county.
