Re-Elect Bobby Johnson - School Board

Twenty-Four Years of Serving Lenoir City Schools
In my years of serving as a Lenoir City School Board member, I have tried to keep our schools growing and improving to be the best we can possibly be.  I realize that our community has limits as to the as to the amount of money that is available for new programs or buildings so I have always worked hard to plan carefully with the money we have to spend wisely without asking for more from the city.  I think as you review all these wonderful things we have added for our students without asking for more resources from the city, you will see that my fellow board members and I have done a good job serving the students of our community.
