Dallas Business Leaders Pick Eric Johnson as Their Candidate in Mayoral Race

Staff Media Mentions

Dallas Observer — Johnson is a progressive, Democratic Texas House representative from West Dallas. He’s made his bones championing civil rights causes, whether it was his successful recent fight to have a lost-cause celebrating Confederate plaque removed from the Texas Capitol or his innovative, but failed, 2017 effort to shield his constituents from the effects of gentrification. Johnson is a rising star in liberal Texas circles, not the kind of guy you’d expect to be on the receiving end of this kind of love from the likes of Hunt Oil scion Ray Hunt.
