||Wayne Johnson serves District 5 as County Commissioner. He attended the University of New Mexico, where he worked his way through college in television news as a news photographer. He graduated with a degree in University Studies with an emphasis in Computer Engineering and Film/Television. Wayne is currently the president of Vista Media, a family-owned business started by his mother, Nancy Johnson, in 1975. Vista Media produces everything from commercials to documentaries to web content.
Wayne has always been active in the community through his business, producing spots for groups like the American Cancer Society and the Kirtland Air Force Base task force. Prior to his service as a County Commissioner, he served on various volunteer committees and boards, including the District 7 Coalition of Neighborhoods, the Mayor RJ Berry APD Transition Team, and the Bernalillo County Fire and Rescue Citizens Advisory Committee.
Commissioner Johnson believes that easy access to information and records generated by government institutions is essential to public accountability. Because of this, he has focused his efforts as a Commissioner on creating a more open and transparent government at Bernalillo County. In 2011, he sponsored the County’s Openness and Transparency Resolution (enacted as an ordinance in 2012) which enabled the creation of the County’s website transparency portal, the Bernco View. The Bernco View makes the county’s spending, budgets, contracts, meeting agendas, employee names and salaries, and more readily available to everyone.
Wayne is married to Kurstin Johnson.
