Family and Personal:
Rep. Johnson is a retired teacher.

Councils and Boards:
She is on the board of Emerge TN and serves in both the House Government Operations and Naming and Designating Committees.
Representative Gloria Johnson (D) represented District 13, now District 90. She voted to support traditional values on three bills and against traditional values on nineteen, which accounts for her 14% vote score.
Here are some of the bills Representative Johnson opposed:
HB1137/SB1197 No restrictions on church activities in declared emergency
HB1749/SB2285 Court decisions de novo, not based on a state agency’s interpretation
HB1867/SB1823 Vaccine exemptions protected
- HB1871/SB1982 Recognition that natural immunity is equal or superior to vaccine
HB1960/SB1884 No government vaccine mandates
- HB2316/SB2153 No males in girls’ sports
HB2454/SB2292 Redefines “obscene” to include educational material in K-12 making it unlawful
HB2666/SB2247 Requires Textbook Commission to provide a list of approved material to GA members
HB2742/SB2728 Requires public high schools to teach virtues of capitalism and constitution
- HB2746/SB2188 Makes Ivermectin available over the counter
Here are some of the bills Representative Johnson supported:
- HB0204/SB0136 The Crown Act- protecting ethnic hairstyles in the work place
HB1201/SB1005 Changes in campaign finance making it harder to defeat incumbents
HB2309/SB2464 Allows professional licenses for illegal immigrants in Tennessee
HB2609/SB2890 Cincinnati Reds 80% tax-break for Chattanooga farm team
HB8002/SB8002 Provides $678,218,300 of taxpayer money for Ford to build an electric vehicle plant in West TN
Rep. Johnson did a terrible disservice to all of the people of Tennessee when she came out publicly dissing Governor Lee and President Larry Arnn for their comments and plans for 50 classical charter schools in Tennessee using Hillsdale’s highly successful classical curriculum. That decision may have robbed hundreds of thousands of Tennessee k-12 students of a truly good education as opposed to the poisonous indoctrination resulting in 28% proficiency scores they are getting now.
Representative Johnson does not seem to understand the limitations of government or the principles of freedom embodied in our Tennessee and United States constitutions. It is frightening to know that she was once a public school teacher.
Tennessee can do better.
