George Johnson

George Johnson

Councilmember Position 2

I was born in Newton MA. I started working as a manager in retail when I was 18 years old. In 1988 I moved to Rainier and worked at the Rainier Market until 2001. While there I got to know many of the wonderful people living in Rainier. After I left the market I worked for Big Lots, as the manager in their Olympia store, until I retired. My hobbies are woodworking, gardening and community service.

My wife, Linda, and I each brought four children into our marriage. Together we are actively working in our community to make it a safer and better place for children to live. I urge all citizens to get involved and be part of our great city. Join us. Make a difference in our community. All you have to do is participate and join in the fun.
I was appointed to council in June 2017 and look forward to this opportunity to represent our city.
