Local Businessman Jesse Johnson Announces Campaign for Georgia House of Representatives

This past weekend, Representative Mickey Channell announced he will be stepping down, causing a special election on January 6, 2015. Representative Channell has spent many years dedicated to his constituents, serving both in local government and in the state legislature.

Oglethorpe County Businessman, Jesse Johnson, owner of Southern Land Exchange and Southern Timberland Consultants announced that he is a Republican candidate for State House in Georgia’s 120th District. He issued this statement:

“My heart and my roots are in Georgia’s 120th District. I care about the families, businesses, and farms of this district and their futures. I am committed to getting this region’s economy growing again. Unrestrained spending, overburdensome regulation, and high levels of unemployment cannot be the new norm. We must reduce taxes, support the businesses that drive the economy in this part of the state, and pass state funded school choice.”

As a member of the Georgia Forestry Association and the Greene/Morgan Forest Landowners Association, I have met with and done business with people across this district. From the sportsmen and the farmers, to the boaters and the business owners, the people of this district want the government out of their pockets and off their backs. I am a conservative businessman who will keep the state government in its proper place, and I will fight to get the federal government out of our way.

Jesse Johnson is a member of the Oglethorpe County Farm Bureau, Athens Area Association of Realtors, Oglethorpe County Rotary Club, and is a former board member of The Sparrow’s Nest, an Athens based charity. He attends Athens Church where he serves visiting guests.
