Linn County Supervisor Amy Johnson announced today she will chronicle her six-month appointment to the Linn County Board of Supervisors through a new blog on the Linn County website.
“I am simply amazed by the vast amount of work done by county supervisors. We are involved in so many important decisions. I wanted a way to share my experiences with the public in a broad way, so I’ve started a blog,” said Johnson. “I hope residents will follow along and learn about the many ways county supervisors impact the community and the county’s role in making our community a great place.”
“To say this job is broad is an understatement. In my first two months as a supervisor, I have toured the county jail, walked gravel roads with constituents, made decisions about programs for the disabled and weighed in on an architect for a new Public Health and Child Development Center. I have learned about secondary road construction, land use and development, Veteran services, juvenile detention programs and Robert’s Rules of Order,” Johnson wrote in her first blog post.
Johnson’s blog posts can be found on Linn County’s website www.linncounty.org/blog. To sign-up for notification when new posts are added, visit www.linncounty.org/notifyme and select “Blog” from the list.
Johnson was sworn in as the District 2 Linn County Supervisor on May 2, 2016. She was appointed to the Linn County Board of Supervisors by a special committee of county officers to fill the vacancy created when Supervisor Linda Langston stepped down to take a new position with the National Association of Counties in Washington, D.C. in April. Johnson was one of 11 applicants interviewed for the position. Johnson will serve as District 2 Supervisor until a new District 2 Supervisor is elected in November 2016.
