Texas Association of Business Endorses Julie Johnson for Texas House District 115

 

Carrollton, Texas TXBIZ PAC, the political action committee for the Texas Association of Business endorsed Julie Johnson for Texas House District 115 as a part of their 2018 candidate endorsements today. TXBIZ PAC supports candidates who are committed to business development in Texas and issued the following statement about their slate:

“The Texas Association of Business State PAC Board chose to support the candidates willing to focus next session on the critical issues facing Texas – investment in transportation and infrastructure, innovation in manufacturing technology, economic development, education, and job creation,” said TXBIZ PAC Chairman Brett Graham. “We look forward to working with these leaders in January.”

Julie Johnson released the following statement:

As a small business owner, I understand how the decisions I make in the legislature will impact our state and local economy. According to a 2017 study commissioned by the San Antonio Area Tourism Council, implementation of my opponent’s “Bathroom Bill” could cause our district to initially lose over $55 million in revenue and approximately 300 jobs — while causing our state to lose up to $3.3 billion in revenue and over 35,000 full-time equivalent jobs per year. I will fight to keep similarly bad legislation from becoming law and will partner with anybody that is focused on keeping Texas the number one state for business development in the country. As the voice of the business community in House District 115, I am thrilled to be endorsed by the Texas Association of Business.”

A prominent District 115 business leader responded to Johnson’s endorsement:

“Barkley Stuart of Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits is proud to support Julie Johnson for the Texas House and is thrilled that the Texas Association of Business agrees that Julie will be a positive voice for entrepreneurship and economic development in our state.”

 

“I’m delighted that the Texas Association of Business State PAC Board has chosen to support Julie Johnson for House District 115. As a TAB board member, I feel we must support candidates who are pro-business, pro-jobs and pro-tourism, and Ms. Johnson is clearly the better candidate who’s aligned with our priorities,” stated Phillip Jones, president/CEO of VisitDallas.

TEXPAC endorses Julie Johnson for Texas HD 115!

ENDORSEMENT ALERT: TEXPAC, the Texas Medical Association’s bipartisan political action committee that helps elect medicine-friendly candidates at the local, state, and federal levels, has officially endorsed our campaign!

“Julie Johnson is passionate about health care and, if elected, will ensure the people of Texas are represented in the best way possible by voting down bad bills. On the other hand, her opponent, Rep. Matt Rinaldi, has consistently voted against medicine in past legislative sessions,” said TEXPAC Chair Robert Rogers, MD. “Julie supports population health care initiatives and will work for accurate and fair compensation by insurance providers for services rendered,” Dr. Rogers said. “She has already proven willing to have an open dialogue with local physicians and act on their concerns. She also supports graduate medical education funding to retain and train new physicians in Texas. She is the spouse of a physician and is deeply involved in the medical process on a day-to-day basis,” Dr. Rogers said. “For these reasons and more, TEXPAC is pleased to back Julie Johnson as an important voice for our patients.”

The support from a bipartisan and well respected group like TEXPAC is an indicator that the momentum is on our side. Regardless of what party affiliation you have, we all deserve proper medical care when we’re sick. I’m proud that the physicians of Texas chose me as their advocate in the legislature. #PeopleOverPolitics #TXlege

HRC Endorses Julie Johnson for Texas State Representative

Read the press release on HRC.org.

Today, HRC announced its endorsement of Julie Johnson to represent House District 115 in the Texas House of Representatives.

“Julie Johnson is a champion for working families who will fight for every day Texans,” said HRC Senior Vice President for Policy and Political Affairs JoDee Winterhof. “We proudly endorse her candidacy to represent Texas House District 115 and look forward to working with another strong, pro-equality voice in the Texas Legislature.”

“It’s time to choose what our Texas of tomorrow looks like. Will we go down the path of hate and waste or will we make sure that Texas is a place where businesses and all families can flourish?” said Julie Johnson. “This choice demands leaders who put the needs of our state above the needs of any party. We have invested too much time on issues that don’t truly matter to the people of Texas. That’s why I am running for HD-115. I am running to bring back common sense based on common values– to do what is right for my fellow Texans, and to ensure that the ability to write laws in a bipartisan manner is not lost in the Texas House of Representatives. I am pleased to be endorsed by the Human Rights campaign and look forward to working with them once elected.”

Johnson lives in Dallas, TX with her wife, Dr. Susan Moster and their two sons. A long time small business owner, she has spent her career serving the people of Texas and fighting for equality, fairness and justice. The choice between Johnson and incumbent State Rep. Matt Rinaldi could not be clearer. While Johnson will fight to ensure the equal treatment of every Texan, Rinaldi is a hard-right legislator who sponsored Texas’ failed anti-transgender bill last session and enjoys support from some the state’s most egregious anti-equality groups.
