U.S. Rep.-elect Bill Johnson plans to leave Mahoning Co.

POLAND — U.S. Rep.-elect Bill Johnson wants to sell his house in Poland after the holidays and likely relocate to the Marietta area, the central part of the 6th Congressional District.

Johnson’s house on Hunters Hill in Poland is not in the 6th Congressional District — it’s in the 17th, about two miles from that 12-county district that includes about half of Mahoning County and all of Columbiana County.

Marietta in Washington County is in the heart of the district. It was the only area specifically named as a potential new home for Johnson, a Republican, and his family in a statement from Christian Palich, Johnson’s transition director, about a move. Johnson has family members in Washington County.
