Geri Johnson, the chair of the Cancer Prevention Study committee, sports a partly purple hairdo as part of the Relay for Life festivities in 2009.

It was sad to see the news that longtime City Clerk Geri Johnson is set to retire soon from the City of Hollister.
Johnson for 29 years has been one of the most helpful city employees and also has contributed her time and dedication to local nonprofit efforts such as Relay for Life. She is the glue that keeps Hollister City Hall together and has shown she is willing and able to help any citizen needing assistance.
As city clerk, Johnson has been a first line of defense for the city on questions having to do with records, document filings, meetings or candidate matters. She has been the go-to person for such matters as applying for block party permits or closing down streets for parades and other celebrations.
She will be missed dearly when she leaves around May not only for her diligence on the job, but also for the attitude she always brought to it. Johnson usually has had a smile on her face and a willingness to help in just about any situation, and deserves sincere thanks for serving the city.
