Childress Comments on Pro Bono Lake Clean-Up Efforts

23 December 2019 WisBusiness News

Public Affairs Director Jason Childress was quoted in a WisBusiness article, “Foley & Lardner lobbyists driving support for Yahara Clean Compact,” about his and the firm’s work on behalf of the Clean Lakes Alliance, a Madison-based nonprofit leading efforts to clean up the Yahara Lakes system.

Foley provides free office space as well as pro bono lobbying and legal services to the group. Paul Wrycha, managing partner of the Madison office, serves on its board. And Childress and two of his colleagues provide lobbying services on behalf of the organization at no cost.

Childress said the firm’s support allows the alliance to devote more of its money to clean-up efforts. “It’s a lot of money they save by not having to pay for those services,” he said.
