    Governor’s race fundraiser in Telluride raises PERA concerns because of event co-sponsor’s activism in public pension reform

    “Sen. Johnston has been a supporter of public employee pensions in the past, and I would think that if he would associate with (Arnold) — such an obvious opponent who has spent millions of dollars nationwide to get rid of pensions — then we would expect he would make some sort of statement to reaffirm his support of pensions,” said Lynea Hansen, the executive director of Secure PERA.

    Asked about the fundraiser, Johnston said he has known Arnold for years but that the first time they’ve talked about PERA was a brief conversation this week when news of the Telluride fundraiser became public on Twitter.

    “We have not had a long discussion before about PERA,” Johnston said.

    But, I mean, now that John's here and helping me get money, I'm all ears.
