BCISD's Mike Johnson re-election statement
Last updated 10/20/2020 at 8:39pm
My name is Michael C. Johnson, and I am again asking for both your support and your vote, as I am again running for re-election to the Bridge City Independent School District's Board of Trustees place #6 in this year's coming school board election to be held on November 3, 2020.
I have had the opportunity and honor to spend the past 9 years in this position, and have deeply cherished my time serving my community and protecting our children. While I feel I have thus far fulfilled my duties and responsibilities to the students, parents, and employees of BCISD to the best of my abilities, I also feel there are still areas of improvement within the school district that need to be addressed. If re-elected, I will continue to pursue the best interest of our kids with dedication, steadfast ethical values, and an insistent desire for improving our beloved school district.
For those of you who do not yet know me, I graduated from Bridge City High School in 1980, and have spent my entire life here in the surrounding area. I have raised 3 wonderful children, April, Michael, and Bryson, and I'm proud to say that all 3 have graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and are living extraordinary lives. My oldest, April, with her husband Craig, has 2 children of their own, August and Elise, who are the greatest grandchildren a person could ask for. My beautiful wife Lori and I have also been heavily involved within the community. I've spent 16 years, from 2003 to 2018, serving as a board member at Bridge City Little League, where Lori and I have also spent 10 of those years volunteer coaching a 6 and 7 year old softball team. In addition, I've spent time over the years participating in the Bridge City Chamber of Commerce, and have been a member of BridgePoint Fellowship Church. Beyond sitting on the school board for the past 9 years, I have also served as president of the school board twice during that time; the 2013-2014 and 2018-2019 school years.
While serving in this position can be tough at times, it's truly a rewarding experience. I care deeply about this community, and having the power and ability to make a difference in today's youth is a very special honor that should never be taken lightly. I ask that you please invest some of your time into the kids of BCISD, and show up to the voting booths either during the early voting period between October 13, 2020 and October 30, 2020 or on election day on November 3, 2020. At the end of the day, it's all about the kids!
Thanks for your support,
Michael C. Johnson
