Former state representative Mary Still registered as a lobbyist in Missouri late last week. Her first client is Schneider Electric.
According to the registration she will lobby “the Executive Branch, including any department, division, agency, board or commission of state government; the General Assembly; and elected local government officials.”
Still ran unsuccessfully for state senate in 2012 losing to Sen. Kurt Schaefer. She is the latest former elected official to lobby after the conclusion of their public service. There are various proposals to put a “wait period” of some length before former legislators could become lobbyists.
