My name is Lisa Green-Douglass and I’m running for re-election to the Johnson County Board of Supervisors.
I have lived in rural North Liberty for 30 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’ve 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 supervisor, I have been a strong advocate for:
- the minimum wage increase, with a view to making it a livable wage,
- addressing issues of hunger and affordable housing,
- containing new development to the North Corridor designated growth area,
- accessible and affordable mental health care,
- transportation, dining, and other services for the elderly, and
- environmentally responsible and sustainable practices.
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
- crisis intervention training for law enforcemnt.
I look forward to continuing to represent you on the board of supervisors. Please contact me if you would like to share your comments and concerns as a resident.
