Johannna Hampton-Dance is a musician, DJ, mother, activist, community organizer and now will become a politician. Last week she filed paperwork to challenge incumbent Candy Mer0-Carlson for the District 2 City Council seat in the 2021 election.
If elected she hopes to improve community engagement with local government. She would also like to work on funding for education, better support for prison reentry programs and elder services.

I’m looking forward to following Johanna’s campaign and will be posting updates.
