UNIONVILLE — N.C. Senate Republican Todd Johnson has announced he will seek reelection to Union and Cabarrus Counties’ NC Senate District 35 seat.

Johnson was been a member of the N.C. Senate since Jan. 1, 2019, and he won re-election in November of 2020; Johnson’s current term ends at the end of 2022.

In a statement, Johnson said: “Last week the North Carolina General Assembly, per the North Carolina Constitution, redrew maps for the NC Senate, NC House and US Congress. Union County has experienced tremendous growth the last 10 years. As such, the new region for District 35 will become more compact and smaller in size. Additionally, NC Senate District 35 will now include Cabarrus County’s Midland area.

“In December I will sign documents for re-election. My name alone goes on those documents. I cannot overstate that the names not on that document — my wife and sons, my parents and siblings, my church family and individuals throughout our community make my service possible. They quietly serve every day.”

Senator Johnson currently serves as Chairman of the Commerce and Insurance and Appropriations on Agriculture, Natural, and Economic Resources Committees. Additionally, he serves on the Finance, Health Care, Rules and Operations of Senate and Transportation Standing Committees.

For the 2021-2022 Sessio, Johnson serves on the following Non-Standing Committees: Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations, Legislative Ethics, Joint Legislative Education Oversight and Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Capital Improvements. He also serves on the NC Child Fatality Task Force.

Johnson is a 2000 graduate of UNC Chapel Hill and he works as an insurance agent.

Before being elected to the NC Senate Service, Johnson was a Union County Commissioner from 2010-14. Todd and his wife, Amanda, have two boys, Tanner and Miles; they call Unionville home.
