Wayne Johnson

Sandoval County


Wayne Johnson was named County Manager for Sandoval County in June of 2020. At the time, he had already served in government for over a decade starting his service with the ABQ Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority in 2011.

Johnson has helped guide an over $500 million county budget through the Great Recession of the 2000s. Also having been on both the elected and executive sides of county government, Johnson understands the unique relationship the County Manager has when it comes to working with the Board of County Commissioners.

“Whether it’s managing county employees; working with the public and media; collaborating with local businesses; dealing with the Governor, Legislature, and state agencies; or representing the Commission; I have the experience and passion to lead a Class A county,” Johnson said.
