Name: Bjorn Johnson, Democrat

Office/District: State Representative District 4

Hometown: Ireton

Profession: Business development representative for a tech company based in Oakland, CA.

Why running for office: “The reason I’m running for office is because not everyone’s voices are being fairly or respectfully heard in our district. I am an open, honest and extremely fair person. I want to represent our district with those qualities and make sure that everyone knows their voice counts; regardless of where they are on the political spectrum. I strive to be an example of being able to agree or disagree with someone and still know we share the goal of wanting the best for everyone in our district.”
