Parkside Hires a Commissioner

One of the city’s most influential lobbying and consulting firms just picked up a key Michael Bloomberg commissioner, Patrick Brennan.

The Parkside Group announced it hired Brennan as a president, adding him to its small but well-connected roster. Brennan was a commissioner for the Community Assistance Unit. Brennan also ran political and field operations for Bloomberg’s re-election campaign in 2005.

Brennan, incidentally, is one of relatively few Bloomberg staffers to have left, despite that fact that the mayor is a lame duck who is — ostensibly — not running for higher office at the end of his term.
