Mary Ann Johnson has been Town of Day’s GOP Chair since 2013 following her outstanding 18-year service as Town of Day Supervisor, which included Chairmanship of the Board of Supervisors in 2005.  She is currently a member and vice-chair of the Town of Day Planning Board, the Financial Officer, Finance committee chair and member of the Executive Council of The Academy of Lifelong Learning (A.L.L.) located in Saratoga Springs, a member of the Women’s Republican Club of Saratoga County, and a member, deacon and elder of her church.

Mary Ann was born in Northville and moved to the Town of Day in 1984.  She graduated from Northville Central School and has a Business Administration degree from FMCC.  For 34 years she was employed by General Telephone, GTE Data Services and Verizon in the data processing fields, and was also part-owner in a restaurant and co-owner of an income tax business during this time.

She enjoys contributing to the community and being a great grandmother.  Mary Ann can be reached at maryannjohnson06@roadrunner.com.
