Allen Boyd takes lobbying job



Former Rep. Allen Boyd, the 'Blue Dog' Democrat defeated in November, has taken a job as a lobbyist. Boyd will work for Twenty-First Century Group in Washington.

“Having known and worked with Allen Boyd for over a decade, I am very enthusiastic about adding him to our team at Twenty-First Century Group," said CEO Jack Fields, a former lawmaker himself. "He brings with him a definitive knowledge of the legislative process having served seven terms in the U.S. House of Representatives. His experience on the Appropriations and Budget Committees will prove invaluable in accomplishing the goals of our clients.”
