"How districts or constituencies are comprised or drawn affects the outcome [of our elections]...Race definitely affects educational opportunity in this area. I recently participated in the school board election as both a voter and a candidate. Diversity of representation and leadership throughout the district was and remains one of my top concerns," said Rev. Johnson.
