Last Call — A prime-time read of what’s going down in Florida politics.
The Florida Association of Professional Lobbyists has selected Mariann Sabolic as its next executive director.
FAPL announced the hire Wednesday in an email to its membership.
Sabolic brings over 15 years of experience in Florida policy in both the public and private sectors. Most recently, she served as the President of LobbyTools, where she ran the daily operations for the past seven years.
She also served as Director of Leadership Florida’s Class Program and managed a statewide grassroots and advocacy program with the Florida Chamber of Commerce.
