MEET LIZ

Committed • Determined • Qualified by Her Journey

Thank you for visiting to learn more about me, my values, my community work and my campaign for U.S. House of Representatives in Georgia’s 12th Congressional District.

I am running to win this Georgia Congressional seat for families like yours and mine. Because at the end of the day, we all want the same things in life: to earn at least a living wage during our working years, have the best health care, be safe in our homes and communities, have our children receive top-quality education, enjoy our elder years, then leave a better quality of life for our children, grandchildren and generations to come.

Elizabeth "LIZ" Johnson
2024 Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives,

Elizabeth “LIZ” Johnson has been a Georgia 12th resident for the past 28 years. Married 26 years to a retired law enforcement officer, together they have seven adult children, nineteen grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.


Liz Johnson worked in the insurance industry for 30 years before retiring. During her insurance career, Liz worked diligently to enhance the lives of many by providing aid and solutions to people’s needs and concerns.  

 

Over many years as a proven leader in her community, Liz has dedicated her time and talents as an elected officer and appointed board member with such organizations as: a Regional Library Board, C.A.S.A. (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children), Habitat for Humanity, Lions Club, a school board zoning task force, Performing Arts mom, and PTA/PTO mom, just to name a few. 

 

“At this time in history, we need individuals at every level of elected office who care about each individual, our families, our communities, humanity, and our environment. I am that person! –Liz Johnson.

 

As a woman in politics, Liz has served at the county, district, and state committee level of the Democratic Party of Georgia for over 25 years. In 2012, after being elected by her state committee peers, Liz also served as one of six Democratic National Committee members to represent the state of Georgia.

In 2014, Liz Johnson’s bid for Georgia Insurance Commissioner made her among few women and even fewer women of color to gain a major party nomination for a statewide executive office. That November, Liz received over 1 million votes statewide, giving Liz Johnson a well-recognized name in Georgia politics.

In 2020, after winning the Democratic Primary with 84% of the votes, Liz Johnson then came within striking distance of winning the U.S. House of Representatives seat in Georgia's 12th Congressional District. 

In 2022, Elizabeth "LIZ" Johnson again became the Democratic Nominee. After falling short of the General Election victory in 2020 and 2022, Elizabeth "LIZ" Johnson has returned more inspired than ever to win this seat for the far too many residents in Georgia's 12th, Georgia and across America who remain overlooked and underrepresented. You now know that Liz is committed, determined and qualified by her journey of life experiences and community service. 

And at this critical moment in history, we need individuals like LIZ in Congress, who care about you, your family, community, humanity and our environment.

It's Time We Elect Elizabeth "LIZ" Johnson to the U.S. House of Representatives from Georgia's 12th district! Our Future Together Matters!
