Marketer of high-tech meters to lobby D.C. on parking kiosks

ACS also has relied on lobbyists to help it influence city politicians, paying prominent lobbyists Kerry Pearson and Max Brown hundreds of thousands of dollars in recent years.
Several other cities across the country — including Las Vegas, Portland, Ore., and Seattle — have started converting their parking meters to kiosks.
