Patricia Lynch Raising Money for Stringer

On the top of this invitation for Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer’s June 5 fund-raiser is a name I haven’t seen associated with his campaign before: Patricia Lynch.

She’s a major Albany lobbyist who most recently was charged with getting congestion pricing passed in the capitol. Lynch is also an experienced fund-raiser–last year, Bill Clinton headlined one of her events.

Stringer hasn’t said what he will do in 2009, but his plans have been the object of some speculation.
