Lisa Green-Douglass
Lisa Green-Douglass, candidate for Johnson County Supervisor

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.
