SHHP: Why are you running?

Jack Johnson: I am running for re-election to the state Senate because of my love for this state and Williamson County. As a husband, father and small business owner, I believe I have the skills and passion necessary to effectively represent the conservative values of the 23rd Senate district.

What are the most important issues facing the state Senate?

Maintaining a pro-growth, business friendly economic climate continues to be one of the most important issues we face as a state. If elected, I will continue to look for ways to reduce the regulatory burden on job creators. We must also preserve our strong fiscal condition while keeping taxes low.

If elected, what legislation would you like to address or revisit?

It is important that we revisit the adoption of Common Core state standards in public education. We should not abdicate our state sovereignty to outside groups or the federal government when it comes to education or any other issue.

What can you offer that your opponent cannot?

I do not know my opponent.

Why should people vote for you?

Serving in the state Senate has been one of the biggest honors of my life. If re-elected, I will continue to fight for smaller government, lower taxes, less regulation and state sovereignty. I will continue to be accessible and attentive to the views of my constituents. I respectfully ask for your vote.
