Pat Brady to start lobbying firm
Former Illinois GOP Chairman Pat Brady of St. Charles has started a new lobbying firm called Next Generation Public Affairs Inc.
He's teaming up with former Iowa Republican Chairman Matt Strawn and Chicago business adviser Bob Fitzsimmons.
“NGPA is a full-service public affairs firm providing clients with comprehensive and technologically sophisticated government affairs, issue advocacy and media relations strategies," Brady said in a statement.
Brady left his spot as chair of the Illinois Republican Party this year shortly after he survived an attempt to ouster him based on, ironically, his lobbying of GOP lawmakers to vote for same-sex marriage.
He was replaced by Rosemont trustee and Statehouse lobbyist Jack Dorgan this month.
