Rainy conditions didn’t prevent community members, supporters and elected officials from packing out the staging area in front of Macy’s at The Gallery at South DeKalb on the evening of Jan. 3 to witness the swearing-in of DeKalb County District 3 Commissioner Larry Johnson. 

Johnson overwhelmingly defeated Felton Wright during the primary last May with more than 80% of the vote and ran unopposed in the November general election. Johnson has served 16 years on the Board of Commissioners. 

The ceremony featured musical performances, pastor-led prayers and remarks from various people including Johnson’s wife, Tanisha Johnson.

 DeKalb County State Court Judge Johnny Panos administered the oath of office. Johnson’s wife and daughter, Tiara, shared the stage with him while he was sworn in for his fifth term. Johnson then addressed the crowd and thanked them for their support.

“I appreciate the folks of District and the people who came out to support the ceremony,” Johnson said. “The people are the greatest asset to move District 3 and the county forward.  I am their public servant and we will have the best days of our lives linking, leveraging and empowering together.”
