Johnson leaves post at HD 52 posted on 11/01/2017

Often times, with dedication comes opportunity.

State Representative Mark Johnson, after seven years serving as House District 52 congressman, is heading in a new direction.

Johnson’s resignation from the Oregon House will take place this month, after which he will become the CEO of the Oregon Business and Industry Association.

“It’s not a position that I sought after but one that came my way because of my successes in Salem and reputation for being an effective legislator,” Johnson told The Mountain Times. “It will be a huge challenge but is an opportunity that I am excited to take on.”

Resigning his seat as state representative for HD 52 is not something Johnson takes lightly.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time in this role and will miss the wonderful people and communities that I have gotten to know,” he said. “It’s meant a great deal to me to have an opportunity to regularly communicate with the folks on the Mountain through my monthly piece in the Times. I think it’s been a win-win for all.”

A replacement process will ensue in November for the balance of the term.

Mark Johnson’s departing column appears in the "Columnists" link in the web edition of The Mountain Times.
