Candy Johnson, City Council Candidate for Ward 5, will launch her campaign kick-off August 28 at 6 p.m. at First Federal Savings Bank on 1800 Ft. Campbell Boulevard.
Johnson announced her candidacy for city council two months ago and during that time frame personally canvassed over 100 homes in Ward 5. She intends to bring her qualifications for the councilor post to the remaining 1900 homes in her jurisdiction. In discussing her decision to run for public office, Johnson said: “I want to work on getting the local government back into the hands of the people and out of the hands of big developers. With a little bit of empowerment, determination and a lot of prayer we can make this a reality.”
She encourages voters and residents of the community to “Come out and meet others in our community that are tired of these ineffective government practices and hidden agendas, and share your ideas about helping to make Clarksville an enjoyable place for all, not just the people making the decisions.”
