The letter below in state files vividly illustrates how lobbyists and office holders are intertwined.
Here we have lobbyist Judy Stern opening a campaign account to launch the re-election of state Sen. Maria Sachs, the Delray Beach Democrat who represents a large portion of Northeastern Broward along with parts of Palm Beach County.
Stern is not currently a registered lobbyist in Tallahassee. Stern has lobbied in Tallahassee in the past.
She continues to do a lot of work in Broward and worked on Sachs’ campaign last year.
Interestedly enough, Sachs is in Tallahassee regularly so she could have easily brought the papers to the state Division of Elections personally.
