DALLAS, TX - Today, State Representative Eric Johnson filed for re-election to the Texas House of Representatives, releasing the following statement:
“It has been an honor representing the people of District 100 in the Texas House for four terms. I am seeking re-election for my fifth term because there remains much to be done to increase the quality of public education throughout our state, and to bring about real criminal justice reform,” said Representative Johnson.
Rep. Johnson's campaign organization, Johnson For Texas, reports that Rep. Johnson has nearly a quarter of a million dollars in cash on hand and has already received an unprecedented amount of pledges for his re-election bid.
"I think a lot of folks across the state and even across the country realize that there is a lot of work to be done to move Texas forward, and that Eric Johnson has quietly but successfully undertaken a lot of that work. They appreciate that, and have been very supportive of him as a result," said Renee Hartley, spokesperson for the campaign.
Texas House District 100 covers the heart of Dallas, including parts of Oak Cliff, West, South and East Dallas.
