Political Blows Still Flying In District 4 as Justin Johnson, Laura Pastor Enter Final Leg of Race

Categories: Election 2013

For instance, Johnson describes himself as a member of Casa de Montanas in his financial disclosure statement, but there is no record of him being a member, according to state documents.

His name also doesn't appear on records for the LLCs Old World Homes II or Arizona Pathways and Partnerships (APP).

Again, he says he listed those corporations because of ties they have with his father, and he wanted to err on the side of over disclosure.

If that were the case, it's worth noting he omitted several from that report, including Old World Homes Berkana Development, Old World Homes Berkana Development II, Old World Homes Berkana Holdings, Old World Homes II, APPB Management.

Johnson's voluminous family interests are a convoluted tangle of limited liability corporations with partnerships that, according to state records, involve the Barron Collier Company, which developed the Collier Center in downtown Phoenix, and Wayne Howard, a well-connected investor/developer and political money-man.

Howard is a member of a limited liability corporation named Osterra, which is managed by PJJR Consulting -- one of Paul Johnson Jr.'s many corporations.

Justin Johnson's dad is also listed as a member on another Wayne Howard corporation, Hojo, LLC.

There is one more connection between the Johnsons and Howard -- and it lies in one of the worst kept secrets around town:

Representative Ed Pastor has always done  ' MY  district  right '.... All though I  may  be a  little  to the left....Laura Pastor, with  her experience will be a great and honest fit  for district 4 ....   Thx.  to all who support Her , MAYOR STANTON AND  TOO  MANY TOO LIST...

Honestly, neither. Both have run an extremely negative campaign against one another, and the process has turned me off.

At this point I don't really care. I'm just sick of all the robo-calls. I'll be glad when its over.

I wish these kids would play nice. It's getting to where I'm not really liking either. That said, the article is really slanted (in a negative way) against Johnson. I'd like to add that he's been to my house twice, his father once, a cousin twice and an uncle once, and has replied to emails which tells me that at least he wants the job. Laura Pastor has sent one campaign aide one time but mails hit pieces every day. That's been my experience anyway. Oh yeah, FRONTERA, it's not her district. It's the residents district.

If Pastor is anything like her father, then private sector jobs will disappear, property values will decline, the federal guns and badges will run all over the constitution, all the while she will be lining her pockets with tax payer $. peace

I believe PASTOR would represent her District much better.

@james8394 Makes you think he doesn't even have a job. So much for "working hard".

@james8394 frontera just picks the swarthiest candidate in any district, and doesn't think that they'd be the best, but rather believes it.
