Where do you work? I am the Mayor of Norcross and also work part-time at Oak Grove Methodist Church and own the Southern Star Music Festival. (CL note: Mayor Johnson also recently chaired the Atlanta Regional Roundtable, a group of elected officials representing the 10-county region and charged with developing a project list for the July 2012 transportation sales tax referendum. We couldn’t help but notice that his calm demeanor and sense of humor served him especially well in this role…)
