Charles Johnson

Charles Johnson Charles Johnson is on a mission to become a Restorative Force for Law, Order and Conservative Principles in Harris County. EARLY LIFE I’m fond of saying that I’m from a little town in Texas where the woods meets the water… I was born and raised in Freeport, Texas, and I grew up very near Surfside Beach in the kind of place that I consider to be idyllic: full of hardworking, self-reliant people who worship their God and take care of their families, living together in a very polite and civil society.

I had the fortune of attending great schools where the teachers weren’t afraid to let us pray if we wanted, weren’t afraid of using corporal punishment, and genuinely cared about our well being as people. This kind of atmosphere, and my truly amazing parents allowed me to succeed beyond any dream I thought possible: The Duke University Gifted and Talented Students nationwide awards program, National Honor Society, All-American in Football and Track, National Merit Scholar Corporation Scholarship, named foremost citizen of Freeport at only 17 years old… these things were possible for me because I grew up in a place in Texas where the majority of citizens were conservative people of faith and believers in a meritocracy, American values and plain hard work. EDUCATION The single most important factor in a person’s success in life is education. While there are other factors that are also important, including parenting, education is the key to opportunity. Growing up in Freeport, Texas, I had the opportunity to attend fantastic public schools. I graduated with honors from Brazosport High School and went on to earn my B.A. in Government from the University of Texas at Austin. A short list of my accomplishments at The University of Texas includes: B.A. in Government, Minor in Latin Dean’s List Two-sport athlete at the top NCAA Division 1 School Two-time AP & UPI All Southwest Conference Football Team Captain during 1991 Season AP & UPI All American – Football Nationally ranked track athlete – Discus Throw Athletic Director’s Honor Roll FINA Oil Company Academic All-Southwest Conference Team Earned 8 Letterman Awards Featured speaker for UT Men’s Athletic Program I took a break from my education as a young adult and played football for a living for several years in the National Football League, but my desire to be a lawyer eventually won out. I retired from the NFL at 28 years old and pursued my law degree and legal career full time. I earned my Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from the University of Houston, and have practiced in Houston my entire career. VALUES I am a Christian Constitutional Conservative. My belief in God is the highest directive on how I live my life and discern what I see before me. I am fortunate to have the best earthly father that anyone can have, and he taught me that whatever you do, it must be done right every time and to the best of your ability, because God is watching. These beliefs, and several others, are core tenets of my life and faith that my father repeats to me every single day. I am further fortunate in that now, at 48 years old, I get to work with him every day. I believe that the teachings of my faith were key to our Founders, and the reason that our society is blessed. The rules that our Founders gave us to live by –our laws– are based upon their faith and I believe informs us how we should live our lives. These values guide my every step, and they always will. My faith teaches me that we are all equal in the eyes of the Lord and that we all deserve to be seen that way here on Earth. Every citizen will be seen this way in my Court. I will both love, yet punish the sinner, as I will praise, yet chasten the saint. I am running for this office to bring the ideas and ideals that Conservatives share to the administration of Justice in this County. I believe that the values of hard work, doing things right every time, achieving your goals on merit and being a good citizen -faithful to neighbors and country- have been lost. I believe that a Judge can both set an example, and take direct action to hold society both upright and accountable. Every citizen’s actions, both good and bad, are an effect on his or her community. I want to be there to praise those who do good, and bring swift and hard accountability to those who would do evil. My faith, and experiences in life and law, makes me uniquely suited to hold this office. For me, being a Christian informs all that I do. I believe that our God blesses each one of us with our own special gifts and graces us with the discernment to recognize right and wrong. I will bring a presence and perspective to the bench that is new to the judiciary in Harris County, Texas.
