Jarvis Johnson For Congress
Thank You For Your Support

Thank You For Your Support

Less than 70 days ago I stood with my family, friends, and supporters in front of the Mickey Leland building to announce my candidacy to be the congressman representing the United States 18 th Congressional District. We chose the Mickey Leland building, because we wanted our race to be about the people. While growing up, I had the opportunity to work under Mickey through the Mickey Leland Youth Task Force (MLYTF), and I saw that he was about the people. We set out to empower and represent the people of the 18 th Congressional District, and we wanted to engage the people in the political process. With your help we were able to do that.

I would like to thank each of you for your support. With your help we were able to create a spirited debate about the issues important to you. Some of you picked up the phone to garner support, some of you contributed dollars, others volunteered your time at the campaign office or in the community, some of you gave in-kind donations, and then others of you helped spread the news via Facebook and Twitter. Your efforts are truly appreciated!\

I enjoyed meeting you at your neighborhood meetings, at your church, and at other places in the community.

The race is not over.

To my constituents in District B, I look forward to continuing to serve you as your city councilman. I will continue to be a work horse for you – championing your issues!



A credible source in the White House has denied that Pres. Obama endorsed the INCUMBENT JACKSON-LEE! If you are tired of the misrepresentation and missed opportunities VOTE TODAY!

You have the opportunity to bring in a New Direction By Voting!

Tomorrow is the day when you get to choose who will represent your issues. I began my campaign earlier this year, because of the missed opportunities in the 18th Congressional District. The current dropout rate, unemployment rate, incarceration rate, and poor health care of the 18th Congressional district are unacceptable. The incumbent has had sixteen years to make the 18th Congressional district better than she received it, but she has failed and time is up. It is time for a New Direction!

I am the Right Choice for a New Direction, because I have and will always be an advocate for the people. I began my career as an advocate for children and education, I later became an advocate for families, then seniors, and when I saw that there was a greater need I ran for City Council. As a councilman, I have been a work horse for the citizens of District B. Now there is a greater need from the people, and I am asking you for your support in helping me fill that need by being your representative for the United States 18th Congressional District.

Debate Challenge & Jarvis Johnson’s TV Appearance Tonight!

We find it amusing this is the first time we’ve ever seen a press release from Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee saying she is on the house floor “fighting for jobs and health care.” During this campaign she’s had every opportunity to stand beside Jarvis Johnson and debate and answer questions about why she has failed miserably in getting jobs created in the 18th Congressional District. She has ducked and avoided just about every opportunity to debate her opponents during this election.

Again we ask her to come and be held accountable to the people who put her in office. We extend yet another invitation to debate the issues and to answer for the deficiencies in her record. The House is not in session this weekend through Tuesday, March 2nd and we hope she accepts this challenge.

FYI: You can watch Jarvis Johnson tonight, Friday, February 26, at 9 p.m. on PBS Channel 8’s “Red, White and Blue”.

FUNDRAISER - American Menu Stage Play @ Ensemble Theater - Thursday, Feb. 25, 2010

AS A GIFT TO OUR SUPPORTERS, TICKETS ARE NOW $50 for the American Menu stage play fundraiser at the Ensemble Theater. Call (713) 225-1616 to reserve your $50 ticket. THIS IS A LIMITED TIME OFFER!

The Women for Jarvis Johnson present an Evening at the Ensemble Theater Fundraiser for the Jarvis Johnson For Congress Campaign.

Featuring delectable Hors d’oeuvres and a Wine reception as well as a wonderful stage play, American Menu, by Doug Wilson Glenn and directed by Eileen J. Morris.

In honor of Black History Month, this play celebrates special moments shared by many at a time in history when history was in turmoil. It’s May 1968, shortly after the murder of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a month before the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. Five Black kitchen workers at a segregated lunch counter are forced to engage in painful self-examination brought about by yet another senseless death in their town. Through passionate conversations, these women face the realities of life on the cusp of change. Jammed in a hot, airless room they must battle prejudice, poverty, ignorance and each other as they search for inspiration. Yet in the midst of this seeming endless time, they manage to find humor that helps bridge the gaps and reconnects them to their humanity. 

The admission for the evening:

Speaker of the House Seat: $250.00 per person
Majority Whip Seat: $150.00 per person
Congressional Seat: $100.00 per person

“Now is the accepted time, not tomorrow, not some more convenient season. It is today that our best work can be done and not some future day or future year. It is today that we fit ourselves for the greater usefulness of tomorrow. Today is the seed time, now are the hours of work, and tomorrow comes the harvest and the playtime.” ~ W.E.B. Dubois
