RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia’s House Speaker-elect is stepping down from her job at a lobbying firm as she prepares for her new leadership role.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported Tuesday that Eileen Filler-Corn is doing so to alleviate the potential for conflicts of interest.
The Democrat had served as government relations director at Albers & Company. The firm lobbies at the Statehouse and governor’s office on health care and energy issues.
Filler-Corn was not a lobbyist. Some of her clients, however, had interests or dealings before the state.
