|The Bakersfield California reports that the city of Bakersfield has let Willie Brown go as a lobbyist.|
No big deal, officials say. It's just that Brown was hired last year to try to get one bill passed. The job got done, and he is no longer in the city's employ, said city spokeswoman Rhonda Smiley.
Brown was hired to lobby for a bill that would give Bakersfield a permanent seat on a panel that referees border disputes between local government agencies, the Local Agency Formation Commission.
The bill passed, Brown earned his $5000 and that's that.
