LOGAN – A recently-retired educator has decided he wants to run for office. Dan Johnson has served as a principal at Mount Logan Middle School and, most recently, as director at Edith Bowen Laboratory School.
Johnson believes those experiences have helped prepare him for a position as a state legislator. Johnson is a Republican and is running for the District 4 seat that Dr. Ed Redd is leaving.
He says he would like to continue Redd’s legacy.
“I think one of the main things I want to do is continue his legacy of listening and being patient, hearing what people’s needs are,” says Johnson. “I think that’s something I’ve always done.
“As different sorts of issues arise or come forward, I want to be a person that can listen to those things and do the right thing. I think that’s something I’ve been noted for over the years, listening and trying to do the right thing.”
Johnson says if he is elected he will want to meet often with local mayors and other leaders and also reach out to the state to help resolve issues when they arise.
On the <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/danjohnson4utah/” target=”_blank”>Dan Johnson Facebook page</a> he created for the campaign on Monday, January 22nd, he confirmed he is pursuing multiple routes to get on the ballot.
“I will be pursuing both the caucus and signature routes to the ballot. Please help me guarantee a spot on the ballot with your signature.”
