Political Blows Still Flying In District 4 as Justin Johnson, Laura Pastor Enter Final Leg of Race
Justin Johnson started a construction company -- Old World Communities -- that did construction work for his father's homebuilding company. According to Arizona Corporation Commission records, Old World Communities is managed by two other corporations controlled by the elder Johnson. According to state records, Justin is a member.
Two other companies that Justin Johnson lists on his Financial Disclosure Statement -- Predecessor Development and NSPAZ, both construction related -- aren't doing business anymore, he tells New Times. While Justin Johnson was in sole control of Predecessor Development, several of his father's companies had controlling interests in NSPAZ.
Johnson says that he listed those defunct companies on his financial disclosure form in an effort to be overly transparent.

He says his company is doing great things in the community. In a February press release announcing his candidacy for the City Council, Johnson describes Old World Communities as one that "has focused on revitalization projects throughout" Phoenix.

The criticism doesn't end there.
