Madison Co. lobbyist paid $75K annually to lobby Washington
Published: October 19,2010
CANTON — Madison County has expanded the duties of its lobbyist to include presenting local issues to the Mississippi Legislature.
The Clarion-Ledger reports that the board of supervisors voted 4-1 Monday for a six-month contract for Jackson lawyer Steve Seale to push for local issues before state officials. He has been paid $75,000 annually to lobby in Washington, D.C.
Seale, a former member of the state Senate, will get $2,500 a month to lobby the Legislature.
Board President Tim Johnson, also a former state senator, says Seale will be Madison County’s “eyes and ears” at the state Capitol on a variety of county-related issues and also legislative redistricting.
