Meet CPBJ’s 2023 Lobbyist Power List

CPBJ Staff//June 9, 2023

Welcome to Central Penn Business Journal’s Power List for Lobbyists. With our lists, we are introducing our readers to the people who impact the way we live through their profession. Today we recognize those who help shape our communities and influence our quality of life through the political foundations our society depends upon with our first list dedicated to only lobbyists. To do that, we asked them to introduce themselves and share something about their jobs and their influences. I hope you enjoy getting to know them.
