Record: Look who's now a lobbyist

Record: Look who's now a lobbyist

"Here's our advice to lobbyist Richard Pombo of Tracy: Don't run for political office again.

No sooner had the 109th Congress adjourned than Pombo was hired by Pac/West Communications, an Oregon-based lobbying and public relations firm that represents many of the same interests for which Pombo advocated so intensely as chairman of the House Resources Committee.


Pac/West no doubt will compensate Pombo well. His interests mesh with much of what the lobbying group is promoting.

However, after being paid to advocate for these special interests, it's hard to imagine Pombo ever successfully lobbying voters on his own behalf in the future.

Maybe that's a good thing." (source)
