Rep. Johnson to host small business summit

State Rep. Eric Johnson

State Rep. Eric Johnson is hosting a small business summit at the University of Texas at Dallas, Callier Center at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.

“It’s a summit for small businesses in District 100,” said Andrew Smith, an intern in Johnson’s local office. The district includes parts of Oak Lawn.

He said groups such as the Southern Dallas Development Corp. and Plan Fund would attend.

“They will discuss funds available to small business and how to access those funds,” Smith said.

Johnson will be there to answer questions after the groups make their presentations.

The event takes place in the Glorig Auditorium, 1966 Inwood Road, across the street from St. Paul Hospital.
