NYC-born Johansson has always had a passion for politics, said of the candidate, “We share a love for this city’s diversity and culture. As a native New Yorker with a political history dedicated to community development, Scott’s priorities echo my own.”

Johannson’s grandmother worked for the politician in the 80s, and her twin brother has worked on his campaign in the past.
