Richard Johnson is an educator that has spent his life working with our children and our community. He is running to put people first, not politics. Now more than ever we need leadership that will deliver real results for our community.
Richard has been an educator for the last 16 years and he believes in working together to reach a common goal. He will continue to work with people from all walks of life and will not let partisan politics stop our government from getting our work done.
First Rate Education for All Students
Richard knows the value of education. He is a first generation American and has been both a student and teacher his entire life. We must work to support all of our students, lessen the amount of high-stakes testing and treat our teachers as the professionals they are.
Lower the Tax Burden
We need to be careful stewards of our taxpayers. Finding a way to support our work without overburdening our taxpayers is of utmost importance. Richard will work to find other means of revenue to ease the tax burden on Illinois citizens.
