My name is Lisa Green-Douglass and I’d be pleased to receive your vote for an open seat on the Johnson County Board of Supervisors.
I have lived in rural North Liberty for 29 years, and have been a resident of Johnson County for 36 years.
I work as a Spanish-language trainer, providing job-specific training to law enforcement officers, jailers and correctional officers; conservation officers; nurses; teachers; and paramedics. My husband Tom and I have five children, all of whom live in Johnson County.
I also have been active in local politics since 1988. I served for 14 years on the Johnson County Democratic Central Committee and have worked on several local campaigns, including my own bid for supervisor in 2014.
As a candidate, I am a strong advocate for:
- better communication between the county and municipalities,
- taking another look at the sensitive areas ordinance,
- containing new development to the North Corridor designated growth area,
- reducing fringe areas,
- accessible and affordable mental health care,
- transportation, dining, and visiting nurse services for the elderly, and
- programs to help people living in poverty.
In recent years, I have committed time and energy to support and lobby for the following county initiatives:
- the creation of a mobile mental health crisis response team,
- the county’s new Community ID program, and
- increasing the minimum wage.
I look forward to representing you on the board of supervisors. Please contact me if you would like to share your comments and concerns as a resident.
