Issues

Johnson's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "I know that a community without jobs is a community without enough opportunities. I will work with local governments of the 7th district, private businesses and community leaders to help bring jobs to the 7th district."
  • Education
Excerpt: "To improve schools we must close the funding and achievement gap. I will work to simultaneously do both; one is need to achieve the other."
  • Affordable Housing
Excerpt: "I will take a firm stand against additional foreclosures in the 7th District. Between 2008-2012 there has been more than a half million foreclosures in the State of Illinois. Our communities have been left in shambles from those foreclosures."
