Gary hires lobbyist to seek grant money for county in Congress

February 19, 1997

County Executive John G. Gary announced yesterday that he has hired Anne Arundel's first Washington lobbyist to help find grant money to boost an assortment of county programs.

Waterman & Associates won a one-year contract worth $96,000 after bidding that attracted 14 other firms.

The company also will work for the county Board of Education and Anne Arundel Community College.

By hiring Waterman & Associates, Anne Arundel joins Prince George's and Montgomery as the only Maryland counties with lobbyists in Washington. Baltimore also has a lobbyist in the capital.
