Lobbying resolution defeated

In a move spurred by those opposed to DPW Chairman Joe Wineke previously lobbying for AT&T on a so-called cable competition bill, a resolution came forward barring all elected officers and employees from lobbying for the interests of another entity.

One delegate argued that lobbying for the bill was tantamount to repeating Republican talking points.

Those opposed to it argued that the resolution would have unintended consequences, barring people from lobbying for causes and organizations that have goals in line with the DPW.

The measure was defeated with a resounding no, the loudest of the day.

Another resolution that would make the chairmanship a fulltime position, that stated "therefore the chair must avoid significant outside commitments," failed with another loud no and scant ayes.
