Portrait of a lobbyist

The Dallas Morning News published a useful profile of Fred Hill that reflects a classic case of legislator turned lobbyist. Hill represented Richardson, Garland, and parts of Dallas for 20 years and now he’s paid to lobby on behalf of many of the local governments that had be elected to represent.

The story also illustrates the lobbying that cities do and how lucrative that can be for a former member. Hill’s lobbying contracts will earn him from $509,000 to $689,000 this year.
