Johnson said it will be a great time for any residents in the county to sit down one-on-one with him to discuss any questions, concerns or issues. Or, he said, if a resident thinks something needs attention, he could bring those issues back to the full board.

“This will provide a unique opportunity for citizens to have their voices heard and play a role in local government,” said Johnson.

Johnson’s office will be located on the second floor of the Womack building in Columbus.
