The Office of Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson has announced that he plans to seek a sixth term in office. In a statement, Johnson said, “Congress needs to work harder for the middle class – for those who want and deserve more time and resources to feel secure and comfortable in their lives.” He added, “I look forward to continuing my work for the people of Georgia’s Fourth Congressional District.”
Rep. Johnson has represented the Fourth Congressional District since 2007. According to the statement, his public service is focused on supporting policies and programs aimed at ensuring all Americans have security, resources and opportunity. The 4th District encompasses portions of DeKalb, Gwinnett, and Newton counties and all of Rockdale County.
Since 2007, Rep. Johnson has helped bring more than $300 million to the district for issues such as foreclosure prevention, healthcare, education, infrastructure and public safety. From his main district office in Lithonia, he has worked to help secure more than $50 million for constituents seeking help with specific federal agencies.
Johnson is a member of the House Armed Services and House Judiciary Committees and is Ranking Member of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Regulatory Reform, Commercial and Antitrust Law (RRCAL), which exercises jurisdiction over competition, consumer welfare and workers’ rights.
