I thought I would pass this along in case you hadn’t seen it elsewhere. From the press release:
Conservative Republican Bill Johnson today announced his candidacy for Congress in Ohio’s 6th district.
Johnson is a retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, entrepreneur and currently servesas Chief Information Officer of a publicly traded manufacturing company.
He says his experiences have helped propel his decision to run for office.
“Serving in the military gave me opportunities that I might never have had and I see public service as a way to give back,” Johnson said. “And there’s certainly a need – our government is dangerously off track.”
Johnson has been considering a run with an exploratory committee since October. During that time he’s traveled thousands of miles and met hundreds of people. He’s raised $107,000.00 for his campaign so far.
“President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and Charlie Wilson appear to think that more government is the solution to every problem,” Johnson said. “But, no one outside the D.C. beltway thinks bigger government, more debt and higher taxes are the answer.”
Who is Bill Johnson? Short bio blurb:
