Councilwoman Joan Johnson Files for Re-election
West U Councilwoman Joan Johnson has officially filed for the May 11 general election.
Johnson is running for re-election to city council.
Johnson said she would like to see the drainage issue solved before the election. If she is re-elected she will continue to have a conservative financial approach and be “responsive to what our residents want.”
Originally from Sun Prairie, Wis., Johnson has lived in West U since 1985. She attended college in Madison, Wis. and received her MBA from the University of Texas at Austin.
Johnson retired in 2009 from her role as president of The Hotel and Lodging Association of Greater Houston.
She currently serves as secretary for the Harris County Mayors and Councils Association, is the city council liaison for the West U Seniors Board and is a member of the West U Rotary Club. She volunteers with the West U Good Neighbor Team and Caring Critters, a pet therapy program. She is also an extraordinary minister at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church.
West U residents will elect a mayor and council on May 11. They will also vote on proposed amendments to the city’s charter, including changing council’s term limits from two terms to three.
The last day to file is March 1 by 5 p.m. and the last day to withdraw is March 4 by 5 p.m.
Applications and accompanying documents can be picked up from City Secretary Thelma Lenz’s office in city hall, 3800 University Blvd.
