K Street Files: Dutko Grayling Lobbyists Decamp for Polsinelli Shughart

Veteran lobbyist Andy Wright and former Dutko Grayling colleague Tracy Hammond have joined Polsinelli Shugharts lobbying team. The duo will focus primarily on energy, environmental and telecommunications issues.

Ive been around this town longer than the roaches, so its good to have this opportunity, quipped Wright, a former president of the Satellite Broadcasting and Communications Association and one-time aide to  former Rep. Rick Boucher (D-Va.).

Wright said the existing members of Polsinellis public policy group, including Jim Davidson and former Rep. Martin Frost (D-Texas), attracted him to the shop.

Jim Davidson and I have been friends for many, many years he used to lobby me, Wright said. Its just a great group of people.

Wright is joining as a shareholder, while Hammond, who started his D.C. career with the American Association of Political Consultants, signs on as senior policy adviser.
