Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Colin Allred (TX-32) today released the following statement after Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson announced her retirement next year. 

“Congresswoman Johnson represents the best of North Texas. She is a trailblazer who worked her way to become the Chief Psychiatric Nurse at the Dallas VA, serving honorably in the state House and Senate, and now in Congress chairing the Committee on Science, Space and Technology.

“Whether you are from Dallas or not, nearly every Texan has benefited in some way from the work of Congresswoman Johnson. Her legacy is remarkable, and I can tell you firsthand from our shared work on the Transportation Committee, that no one works harder for their constituents. 

“In the coming year, there will be more than enough time to reflect and celebrate all she has done for our state. I join my fellow Texans in saying that Congress is losing a giant and a powerful force for good. Thank you, Congresswoman Johnson, for your service.”
