I couldn’t have done it without you and I am ever grateful for your support. You are the most hardworking, caring people I know and I am proud to represent you.

Johnson secures Star Tribune endorsement!

I am honored and excited to be endorsed by the Star Tribune. I appreciate the recognition of the hard work I have put in for our ward and our city.
