Jeff Johnson filed as a Democrat for Marshall County Commissioner, District 2 on Thursday.
Johnson is a 1970 Graduate of Plymouth High School. While attending PHS he excelled in football and baseball. After attending Ball State University and serving in the Navy, Jeff lived in several states but returned to Plymouth and has made Marshall County his home since 1983.
In 1983 Jeff Johnson started working as an Equipment Operator at a local gravel pit. Recognizing the benefits of union membership, he joined the International Union of Operating Engineers in 1998 and retired in 2011. He has worked as a lifeguard and aquatics instructor at LifePlex Fitness Forum where he has forged many friendships.
With a passion for government and politics, Johnson decided that just like his interest in sports he could no longer sit on the sidelines. Jeff believes that we need to bring civility back to the public discourse in local politics. He understands the needs and concerns of working families in Marshall County.
Jeff has been married to his wife Kim (Pittman) Johnson for 36 years, they have four children and eleven grandchildren. He looks forward to meeting the constituents of Marshall County on the campaign trail.
Johnson is the first Democrat to file for a county government office in the May Primary.
The Republicans have three candidates for District 2 Commissioner. They are incumbent Mike Burroughs, Adam Faulstich, and Steve Gorski.
Candidates only have until noon today (2-9-24) to file.
