Wake County school system paying up to $60,000 for legislative lobbying efforts

Taxpayers could be billed for as much as $60,000 to pay for the Wake County school system's efforts to influence lawmakers during the legislative session.

This contract shows that Capitol Advantage Associates, led by Theresa Kostrzewa, will be paid up to $35,000 to be the school board's lobbyist in the General Assembly. This contract shows that Crowder Consulting will be paid up to $25,000 to be the board's legislative liaison.

School board chairman Keith Sutton said Tuesday they had signed a contract with Crowder Consulting because they expected a flurry of legislative bills involving schools and didn't want to go the route of expending the funds to bring back the old staff position of legislative liaison.
