Beyonca Johnson and her team of volunteers are out every day knocking on doors to increase her campaign visibility. You have to love her perseverance and diligence. She is “champion for the people” within the 7th district. Beyonca has faced many of the challenges that people within her district have encountered. She can identify with their worries and concerns. She prides herself for being the only candidate that has built a successful business in her district, helping people repair credit and counseling them for home ownership.
Our nation is in a crisis and the 7th district is in need of dire resources and direction. LaShawn Ford, state representative of the 8th District, encouraged Beyonca to place her name on the ballot. Working side by side with Ford gave her some insight on running a successful campaign. Not only did Beyonca build a thriving credit-repair business from the ground up, she is also a real estate broker. Her background in business has not only equipped her to balance a budget, but also has enabled her to understand the needs of those within her community. Johnson has been able to aid many through her business, but without proper legislation, she can only get so much done.
“It’s time for someone to step up and that’s me,” she says. “Our leaders should be about the people and making changes.” Beyonca Johnson has has changed lives. Winning the state representative seat will enable her to do it on a larger scale.
Johnson wants voters to know that she is running because it’s time to change some things, time to take government back, stand up and fight and come together. She feels that we have to become more active, more engaged and involved, here. Her job is to make sure the community is properly informed, whether it is creating early watch programs for foreclosures, or helping to educate youth. Johnson is running on integrity and leadership. She is the only one that has her own business. She knows how to balance a budget; she is an employer.
She wants her constituents to know that she has experienced everything they have experienced. She doesn’t feel her role as a state representative is a career. She feels that she simply represents the people. She is an advocate for the people and they are hiring her to represent them.
Beyonca Johnson is endorsed by Secretary of State, Jesse White, former Senator Roland Burris, State Representative La Shawn Ford, Local Two, The Village Clerk of Broadview and Illinois Committee for Honest Government.
