Another Candidate For Longview Mayor

A Longview educator today becomes the latest to throw her hat into the ring for the Longview Mayor's race.

In a press conference today, Julie Johnson-Ray officially announced her candidacy for mayor.

She has been a teacher at Ware and Bramlette schools and the assistant director of the local Head Start program. Johnson-Ray believes it's time for a new leadership to solve old problems.

"I believe it's time for our community to redirect our city leadership and hold these public office holders accountable for positive attitudes actions and language.  There seems to be a real urgency to move forward but I don't believe any real progress can be made if our efforts to move forward are not done together, to make a city which we'd be proud," she says.

 Johnson-Ray becomes the second to declare for the job.

Councilman Jay Dean announced his candidacy last week.
