Friday People: K Street Project Waning?
A roundup of the latest people news from DC flackdom...
- Fresh evidence that Grover's K Street Project is one the wane? Jeff Birnbaum reports that the Biotech Industry Organization (BIO) just named Democrat Jeff Joseph as VP of Comms. Joseph comes to BIO from the Consumer Electronics Association, the people who bring the world (and a few lucky congressional staffers) the massive Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas every January. You may remember that in 2004 BIO picked ex-Republican Rep. Jim Greenwood as its president, over ex-Dem Rep. Cal Dooley (my ex-boss).
- Chris Stenrud, ex-Daschle/Senate Dem head and ex-GMMB, has opened DC office for SF-based PR shop Allison & Partners. Joining Stenrud is Katrin Olson, ex-flack for Environmental Defense (WP Special Interests)
