Council Member Jarvis Johnson officially announces he is running for Houston's 18th Congressional District seat
On Tuesday, January 5, Houston City Council Member Jarvis Johnson stood outside the historic George "Mickey" Leland building to announce that he is officially running for Houston's 18th Congressional District seat.
“We're going to have a frank discussion on who's capable of bringing and creating good-paying jobs for the people of the district,” said Council Member Johnson, who was joined by a host of supporters who stood behind him as he delivered his message to the local press.
In his statement, Council Member Johnson also noted the dismal unemployment and school dropout rates in the 18th District and declared "I have the energy. I have the youthful exuberance. I have the legs and the strong back to get out there and get the word out about what our campaign and candidacy is all about."
Council Member Johnson took the oath of office for his third term in City Council on January 4 and on that same day he went to the headquarters of the Harris County Democratic Party, where he filed to become a contender in the March 2 Democratic primary.
