Stephanie Johnson grew up in Athens, GA, and was educated in the Clarke County public school system and is a 1991 graduate of the flagship Clarke Central High School. She found herself intrigued by math at an early age, which led to her obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from the University of Georgia. She is currently pursuing a Master of Business and Technology degree from the Terry College of Business at UGA.


Stephanie met her husband, Jeffery Johnson (Jeff), in 2014, and they were married in 2021. Jeff has been an employee of the Unified Government of Athens-Clarke County Police Department for over two decades. He currently serves as the Field Operations East Patrol Division Commander. With her marriage to Jeff, Stephanie gained a “bonus” daughter, Jasmine, a Junior studying History Education at Georgia State University. 

Stephanie and her husband actively participate in Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, a community she joined in her childhood—her earlier years of church involvement led her to discover public service, inspiring her to run for District 6 Commissioner.

Stephanie has a wealth of knowledge and experience working in both the public and private sectors, distinguishing her as an advocate for the constituents of District 6. Stephanie is a former Unified Government of Athens-Clarke County employee, where she worked in the Finance Department and the Office of Operational Analysis for more than a decade. During her time at ACC, Stephanie gained first-hand experience in the county budget, day-to-day operations, and the process of decision-making.

Stephanie has been an active member of Athens Toastmasters (past president, treasurer, membership chair) since 2015. She earned her Lean Six Sigma Certification in 2015; she is a 2016 graduate of Lead Athens and a 2017 graduate of Citizens Police Academy (CPA).

She owns and operates St. Johns Consulting Group, LLC, an Independent Consulting company offering technology, education, and project management services.


Stephanie has developed excellent institutional knowledge and understanding of the inner workings of ACC, making her the most qualified candidate ever. If she had a hashtag, she says it would be #PeopleoverPolitics.”


Stephanie is running for District 6 Commissioner because Athens is her home, and nothing could compromise her investment in, as she likes to say, "the community that raised me." Stephanie considers herself a lifelong student of people, politics, and culture. For over 25 years, she has visited 44 of the 50 states and has traveled to several international locations. Her extensive travel and wide range of personal and professional experiences have given her a fresh, out-of-the-box perspective that will contribute significantly to the growth of Athens. Stephanie hopes that Athens' best days are ahead for those who grew up in Athens and those who choose to settle here. Athens' residents need commissioners willing to put politics aside and make policy decisions in the best interest of residents, especially the residents who live in Athens year-round. 

It's long overdue. Athens needs a fresh voice, fresh perspective, and fresh leadership. Vote for Stephanie Johnson for District 6 Commissioner!
