Event description

Description

The honor of your presence is requested by the Collin County Business Alliance for a reception honoring Congressman Sam Johnson.

Congressman Sam Johnson, a decorated war hero and native Texan, ranks among the few members of Congress to have fought in combat. Johnson served in both the Korean and Vietnam wars as a member of the Air Force. He spent seven years as a prisoner-of-war in Vietnam, including more than three years in solitary confinement. Following his distinguished military career, Congressman Johnson established a home-building business in North Dallas and served in the Texas State Legislature.

Congressman Johnson has continued his service by making a great impact not only on the veteran community, but also on Collin County residents as a whole. Amongst many accomplishments, Johnson secured the approval for two local Veterans Health Clinics in Plano – a Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC), as well as a Specialty Clinic. These clinics allow veterans to receive proper health care closer to home and provide an alternative to the Dallas VA. He also fought the EPA to ensure North Texas does not experience a shortage of water by 2020 due to the community’s population boom.

In 2016 the Collin County Business Alliance presented Congressman Johnson the Leadership Award for his continuing contributions to our community. Please join us on October 6 to celebrate Congressman Johnson and all that he has done to make a positive impact on Collin County.
