Family and Personal:
Rep. Johnson is a retired teacher.
She is a member of the Tennessee Women’s Political Caucus, Tennessee State Employees Association, and the Tennessee Retired Teachers Association.
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) represents District 13. She voted with TLRC on eight bills and against us on eighteen, which accounts for her 35% vote score. Johnson did not sponsor or co-sponsor any of the TLRC favored bills. She is in the same mold as her fellow party members, voting almost as a block against strong constitutional bills and supporting those that are neutral or more profligate with tax-payer money and expansive government.
Rep. Johnson is articulate but does not seem to understand the principles of freedom embodied in our constitution. Her constitutional score is a four out of ten.
We hope to find more common ground in the 2022 session.
