Local businessman and licensed real estate appraiser Travis Johnson has announced that he will seek the office of Assessor of Property for Rutherford County in the Republican primary next March.
Johnson owns and operates The Johnson Group, Appraisal and Real Estate Services, a successful small business focusing on both appraisal and real estate services.
“My 17 years of industry experience with appraisals will be most helpful when carrying out the constitutional duties of Assessor of Property,” Johnson said. “I will provide fair and honest assessments for the residents of Rutherford County.”
Johnson received his bachelor of science degree in finance, real estate and law from California State University, Long Beach. He is a candidate for a master’s degree in financial economics at Middle Tennessee State University.
“Government spending must be restrained,” Johnson stated. “As a fiscal conservative, I sincerely believe that we must streamline and maximize accuracy and efficiency.”
Johnson has been married to his wife, Tiffany, for 18 years and together they have seven children and three grandchildren. He has served Rutherford County as a member of various boards, including the county Board of Equalization. Additionally, he is a member of the Tennessee Appraisers Coalition and Middle Tennessee Association of Realtors.
“I would appreciate your support and your vote in the upcoming Republican primary,” Johnson said. “It is imperative that the Republican Party select a consistent conservative as its nominee. I am a lifelong Republican, member of the Rutherford County GOP and The TN GOP. Also, I am a proud supporter of President Trump and will manage the Assessor’s office with the conservative principles that have guided me throughout my lifetime.”
