Why is another campaign paying Warren Stewart’s consultant?

Michael Johnson currently serves as a Phoenix City Councilman in District 8. He is termed out and as far as I know is not running for any other office at this time. He has $7,216.38 cash on hand, according to his latest campaign finance report. Johnson’s committee raised $0 and there was a single disbursement during the reporting cycle: $1000 to fundraising pro Elissa Mullany.

Which is odd because Mullany is known to be working on Warren Stewart’s campaign, from which she has not been paid anything since April. It’s possible her efforts for Stewart, who currently has about $5K on hand, are voluntary at this point. Okay, maybe, but what is the paid work she’s doing for Johnson? By the way, Johnson and Stewart share the same political consultant, Mario Diaz of Diaz and Associates.

    Because she is preparing Johnson’s campaign thank yous, closing the books, putting the councilman’s campaign materials in order, preparing for the end of Johnson’s term. Hope this helps your curiosity.

    See you big silly. Mario has the scenario. (!)

    If it is him, I catcha whiff of troll.

    A more better, of course, kwestion would be why Mullaney’s boss, Super Mario, king lobbyist for the ex-payday now title loan kingdom is so generous to D8 politicians?
    Could it have something to do with the districts median income of about $35K Prime grounds for emrgency loans at shark interest rates.

    It would be wildly cynical and way out in space to speculate at the connection, therefore I’m the cat for it.
    Good comments playground for it too.

    Methinks there is more than meets the eye. Super Mario has pulled all his firms websites. Nothing to see here.

    Lee Miller, an industry lobbyist with the firm Mario Diaz & Associates, said payday lenders were popular with many consumers precisely because credit unions couldn’t offer the services they wanted……..

    Oops, I assume her boss at the campaign. If that’s the real Mario, kinda answered that one.
