Victoria M. Johnson, state Senate District 9

VICTORIA M. JOHNSON

Republican

BACKGROUND:

  • Johnson, 60, of Rockville Centre, served as chief of staff to former Assemblyman Brian Curran. She is also running on the Conservative party line.
  • Worked as Assembly Republicans’ regional coordinator for Long Island, putting together task force conferences, news conferences and other events.
  • Graduated from SUNY Potsdam.

ISSUES:

  • Repealing NY’s new bail law, which eliminated bail requirements for most misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies.
  • Repealing congestion pricing, which applies a toll to drivers entering certain sections of Manhattan at busy times.
  • Fighting for increased budget transparency, more direct assistance to deal with pandemic and job creation projects — says Democrats did not fight for the canceled Amazon project in Queens.
