Hon. Bill Johnson

US Representative, Ohio

Bill Johnson was born and raised on family farms, where he learned early the values of hard  work, honesty, and sacrifice. 

Johnson entered the U.S. Air Force in 1973 and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel after a  distinguished military career of more than 26 years. 

Following his retirement from military service, Johnson turned to creating and building high  technology businesses and also served in the executive leadership team as Chief Information  Officer of a global manufacturing company. 

In 2010, Johnson was elected to his first term to represent the people of Ohio’s 6th Congressional  District, which covers much of eastern and southeastern Ohio. He was reelected to his sixth term  in November of 2020.  

Since first taking office, Johnson has been fighting to create jobs in Eastern and Southeastern  Ohio, improve services to our nation’s heroes – our veterans, and to make our federal government  more effective, efficient, and accountable to the American people. 18 bills authored by Johnson  have been signed into law by presidents of both parties.  

He currently serves on the House Energy & Commerce Committee and he is the Co-Chairman of  the House Natural Gas Caucus and a member of the House Shale Caucus. 

Bill and his wife LeeAnn currently reside in Marietta with a son, Nathan. He is also the proud  parent of three grown children and is a grandfather of six.
