Barney Bishop's latest adventure takes flight

1

December

Four months after announcing he was leaving Associated Industries of Florida, veteran Tallahassee lobbyist Barney Bishop said Thursday he's forming a new lobbying firm, Barney Bishop Consulting LLC.

"You can't teach an old dog new tricks," Bishop says.

He's looking to attract clients in three areas he views as specialties: space, transportation and offshore oil exploration.  He's also launching a web site (www.barneybishop.com) and a blog called The Bishop Blog and he'll start tweeting, too.

"Everybody's been waiting to see what I was going to do," Bishop says.
