Andrew Johnson is owner and publisher of the (Mayville) Dodge County
His tireless efforts over the last year played a significant role in the fight against newsprint tariffs, which were ultimately overturned in September. He was one of only two newspaper publishers in the U.S. asked to testify in front of the International Trade Commission about the effect of the tariffs on newspapers.
Along with the tariffs, Andrew has lobbied for newspapers on a number of other issues. He has written columns and testified and talked with Wisconsin legislators to keep legal notices in newspapers, and has even gone to Washington D.C. to speak with legislators and U.S. Postal Service administrators about keeping mail costs down and service up for newspapers.
