New York City Council Confirms Appointments to Lobbying Commission After Three Year Wait
City Council has confirmed the appointments of Herbert Berman, Margaret Morton, Lesley Horton, and Jamila Ponton Bragg to the New York City Lobbying Commission. Berman, a lobbyist and former Council Finance Committee Chair, was selected to be the Lobbying Commission Chair.
Formation of the Lobbying Commission had stalled for three years as suitable candidates were sought. The Lobbying Commission is an advisory body charged with making recommendations to improve New York City’s 2006 lobbying laws.
