Mayor Johnson named one of Georgia Trend’s 100 most influential Georgians

 

SAVANNAH (Jan. 4) – For the third consecutive year, Mayor Van R. Johnson, II, has been named among Georgia Trend's 100 most influential Georgians in the 25th iteration of the publication's annual list of influential people around the Peach State. He is one of two mayors and three individuals from Savannah/Chatham County to be recognized this year.

 

In their profile of Mayor Johnson, Georgia Trend highlighted the following: "The City of Savannah’s $6.5 million Dundee Project, a 40-cottage permanent supportive housing project that broke ground in early November, is the largest investment the city has ever made to help its homeless community, according to Johnson. Meanwhile, the city-owned 9,500-seat Enmarket Arena, completed in early 2022, promises to be a catalyst for Westside economic development." 

 

"I am excited to once again be named among this prestigious list of influential Georgians," Mayor Johnson said. "This means that Savannah continues to be viewed as a major leader in the state of Georgia, and we will continue to focus on making big things happen in Georgia’s First City.”

This year's list includes CEOs, politicians, college presidents, nonprofit and economic development leaders, among others, who have inspired and spearheaded efforts to meet and beat challenges in virtually every corner of the Peach State. Some are very public figures, while others work quietly behind the scenes. All are tireless and passionate in pursuit of their vision for a better Georgia.
