Roe on city election
Newly elected members of the Johnson City Commission and School board were sworn in on Monday afternoon. While several noteworthy people ran for office this termÖand an issue with untruthful mailers entered the picture, that didnít convince residents in the city to go cast their ballots. U.S. Congressman Dr. Phil Roe says the drop in voters was dramatic from his days running for commission.. Q: audio Roe on city election ďI canít think of anything that has frustrated me more than a ten percent turnout. When I first ran for office in 2003, which was ten years ago, ten-thousand-five-hundred or so people voted in the Johnson City election. Only Forty-five hundred people voted this time, and I donít know why the voter apathy is. I mean, there werenít a lot of big issues, I admit, but people need to come out an vote, and thatís one of the things that I try to do is bring the government to the people.Ē Roe says he simply has no answers as to why turnout was so low, but he hopes more people get informed and involved with government.
