Politico Influence By Theodoric Meyer and Marianne Levine | with David Beavers and Garrett Ross | 7/19/2018

CAPITOL HILL POLICY GROUP ADDS REID: James Reid has joined the Capitol Hill Policy Group, a new lobbying shop started earlier this year by two Dentons veterans, Todd Bertoson and Robert Odawi Porter. Reid was previously senior vice president of the Telecommunications Industry Association and before that served as chief of staff to former Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.). He’ll be lobbying on transportation and communications issues, including the Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization bill that’s currently moving through Congress. “Over time, the goal is to build a larger practice in these policy areas, among others,” Reid wrote in an email to PI. “During our time on the [Senate] Commerce Committee, Todd and I worked together in a bipartisan manner to pass a lot of significant legislation and we believe that we can make an effective team for our clients.”
