|Johnson won't seek re-election to District Attorney's office|
Dist. Atty. John Johnson said today (Wednesday) he will not seek re-election to another term of office.
"I have mixed emotions about retiring," Johnson said. "But I feel like the time is right."
Johnson will have served four consecutive six-year terms at the end of December.
"At the end of this term," he said, "I will have spent more than half my life in the DA's office."
He took office for his first term in 1985. Prior to being elected District Attorney, Johnson, age 54, served as an assistant prosecutor under then DA John Sturgeon.
"I look forward to spending more time with my family and I plan to do some limited law practice when I retire," he said.
Johnson said he has heard rumblings that at least two of his assistants may seek the office.
"That's fine and I wish them the best of luck," Johnson said. "But when they officially announce their intentions, they will be expected to resign immediately from their posts."
He said he "will remain actively involved in the running of the office until December 31."
Johnson expressed appreciation for the support he has received from the people of 7th Judicial District, which includes Catahoula and Concordia parishes.
