Hank Johnson opens new campaign office

Johnson, a Democrat, is running for a third term to represent Georgia’ Fourth Congressional District.

Johnson invites residents to stop by the office at 3054 Panola Road in Lithonia from 2-5 p.m. Saturday. He will greet supporters and serve refreshments.

Johnson will maintain his office in the Burroughs Building at 6440 Hillendale Drive, but is relocating his campaign headquarters to the new location, a spokesman said.

Johnson announced in December that he is battling Hepatitis C, but has said he is healthy and committed to running again.

Johnson faces former DeKalb CEO Vernon Jones and DeKalb Commissioner Connie Stokes on the Democratic ticket. Business consultant Liz Carter, retired naval officer Larry Gause and information security manager Cory Ruth are running on the Republican ticket.

The primary is scheduled for July 20 and the general election is scheduled for Nov. 2.
