VERONICA R. JOHNSON

I love my district because it is a warm and welcoming community. I am running to ensure that this area remains family oriented and one of the safest places in Jefferson County. I am endorsed by the United Mine Workers of America District 20.

I was educated in the Birmingham City Schools where I graduated from J.H. Phillips High School. I went on to attend Alabama A&M University where I obtained a B.A. in Political Science. Soon after graduation, I enrolled at the University of Alabama, where I received my Master of Science in Criminal Justice. I later attended Birmingham School of Law where I obtained a Juris Doctorate.

Currently, I’m a Juvenile Probation Officer in Jefferson County as well as an adjunct instructor at Miles College and a satellite campus Alabama A & M University. I previously sat on the Board of Directors for the Homewood Soccer Club. I am the Founder of Cupcakes and Convos, a mentoring program focused on preventing female adolescents from becoming involved in the juvenile justice system.

I have two children, Austin (14) and Autumn (6). During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my children, watching my son play soccer and my daughter prepare for ballet. We are currently members of the Church of the Highlands.

As a probation officer and an educator, I bring a wealth of knowledge and understanding to our community. I will continue to assist youth, to help them become the best possible person they can be. It is my responsibility to enhance the district. I am entering the realm of politics for the right reasons – to do what is best for our community.

WELCOME!
