I have known Mark Johnson since

I have known Mark Johnson since 1966. We attended Union Hill and Nevada Union schools together. I never thought Mark was the “politician type,” and when he was elected to the Grass Valley City Council, he did not act like a typical politician. Mark was motivated by solving problems and listening to citizens and business owners’ concerns. Bottom line – Mark made Grass Valley a better place to live and work. Mark will be an asset to our county government.
