Johnny’s parents ran away from the Soviet Stalinist government in 1944 during WWII and settled in one of the original Thirteen Colonies: New Jersey. They left tyranny with liberty in mind to live the American Dream. In the early 60’s, they moved from the east coast to California and lived in three wonderful areas: West Hollywood, Los Feliz, and Hollywood, which at the time were paradise.
Throughout the years, Johnny was no stranger to hard work. He started working at the age of 11 and over the years fell in love with politics.
