Another lobbyist working as a staffer

Stuff reports:

Phil Twyford’s former Senior Ministerial Advisor, Barry Ebert, remained the sole director and shareholder of his PR and lobbying firm during his two-year stint in the Beehive.

Ebert, who left the Beehive in January, is the director of PR and lobbying firm Three Point Two Communications, whose website advertises “advocacy and lobbying” services helping clients  “stay several steps ahead of your competitors and the regulators”.

Twyford is the Minister in charge of New Zealand’s transport regulators, such as NZTA the chief regulator for New Zealand transport, as well as the Civil Aviation Authority, which looks after air safety.

Nothing to see here at all.
