Brandon Johnson was elected to serve as Wichita's District 1 Council Member in 2017. Since taking office, he has worked tirelessly to advocate for community members while seeking economical progress for the city's northeast neighborhoods.

Johnson, a Wichita native, grew up in the area he now represents. The Northeast High School graduate became involved in community work as a young leader and his passion for bettering the community around him never faded.

His efforts include more than 10 years of advocating for economic development through youth employment, job creation, social services and community education.

In 2011, Johnson created the nonprofit organization, Community Operations Recovery Empowerment (CORE). The agency focuses on community engagement and leadership development, particularly in District I. Through CORE, Johnson has helped foster dialog between law enforcement and residents through a series of “Know Your Rights” forums; as well as hosted several community conversations focused on how to end gang violence and involvement and champions health and wellness through the development of a community gardens with produce being distributed to bordering neighborhoods.

He served on the advisory board of the Heartland Wichita Black Chamber of Commerce and participates as a liaison through Wichita Urban Professionals to the Entrepreneurship Task Force; a group that is affiliated with the Greater Wichita Partnership that holds as its tasks to: “build on Wichita’s rich entrepreneurial heritage by identifying, engaging and advocating for entrepreneurial organizations, businesses and individuals” as well as to “leverage public and private resources important to entrepreneurs.”

As an active member of Wichita Urban Professionals, Johnson works to help empower Wichita’s young, diverse and talented through relevant personal and professional development coaching, engaging leadership training and through dynamic social networking events.

The accolades Johnson has amassed for his community involvement are numerous. In 2014, Johnson was named among the Wichita Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 as well as receiving the Ron Walter Achievement from the Wichita Branch NAACP. In addition to those recognitions, Johnson has twice received the Man of Excellence from Grant Chapel A.M.E Church as well as 2009 Citizen of the Year from Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc.

Johnson’s political involvement is as follows:

  • Democratic Precinct Committeeman (Precinct 112) (2014–2016)
  • Regional Field Organizer – Kansas Democratic Party (2014)
  • Kansas Advisory Board for Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (2005–2015)

A strong neighborhood is a valuable tool in maintaining healthy communities. Neighborhood organizations bring together people of diverse backgrounds, who share common concerns for their safety, properties, homes and community interests. Neighborhood organizations help City staff and elected officials identify and resolve issues and concerns in a particular area. There is strength in numbers - having a unified voice can make a difference.

An HOA is an actual business entity and normally is organized as a "Not for profit" organization. It is subject to all of the same filings that other nonprofit organizations are subject to including annual reports, tax returns and business classification. Many residents are unaware of the requirements of time and governance when they volunteer to serve their association, which may include notifying a neighbor that their dues check bounced.
