FOREST PARK — In a confusing series of votes Tuesday, city council members rejected a proposal to hire a lobbyist at $8,000 a month to represent their interests in Atlanta.

The lobbyist group is the same one that proposed to represent Morrow City Council but is under two different names. The group that tried to represent Morrow is Capitol Connections and the one offering a proposal to Forest Park is Progressive Affairs. However, both groups comprise the same people — Kevin Thomas, McKinley Lewis, John Clayton and Glenn Baker. Viet Tran is part of the Progressive Affairs group.
