State Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson has officially received an endorsement for reelection in state Senate District 27 from the Tennessee Professional Fire Fighters Association.

“Senator Johnson is a steady, thoughtful leader in the Tennessee Legislature, and we appreciate his commitment to issues that are important to firefighters,” TPFFA President Matthew Tomek said. “He always maintains an open-door policy, and we know that his support of first responders makes a difference. It is clear that Senator Johnson not only respects the service and sacrifices that our members make on a daily basis, he also turns that into action to enact the policies we need to protect the health and safety of firefighters across the state.”

Johnson is seeking reelection in District 27. He previously served in District 23, but redistricting this year moved him to 27, which is entirely in Williamson County. He’s facing fellow Republican Gary Humble in the Aug. 4 primary.

Johnson assumed office in 2006 and began serving as state Senate majority leader in 2018.

“I’m grateful to have the Tennessee Professional Fire Fighters Association’s endorsement,” Johnson said. “TPFFA is integral to providing fire fighters across the state with needed resources while promoting legislation that helps the emergency response community. Our firefighters selflessly enter dangerous, high risk and often traumatic situations day in and day out to keep us safe, and I will continue to support them in any way I can in the general assembly.”
