Former New York congresswoman Susan Molinari is joining the Washington office of lobbying firm Bracewell & Giuliani, beginning Oct. 6.
Mrs. Molinari worked on the election campaign of firm partner Rudolph Giuliani before he gave up his bid for the presidency earlier this year.
She is leaving her job as chief executive officer of lobbying firm the Washington Group to take the new post as senior principal at Bracewell & Giuliani. At the Washington Group, her clients included the Association of American Railroads, the Real Estate Roundtable and the California Association of Winegrape Growers.
Before becoming a lobbyist, Mrs. Molinari served four terms in Congress from 1990 to 1997 as the Republican representative of New York’s 13th and 14th Congressional districts. She served four years on the New York City Council before running for Congress.
She left Congress to co-anchor a morning news program at CBS.
“Bracewell is known for its thoughtful, bipartisan approach to government relations,” Mrs. Molinari said in explaining her decision to join the firm.
Bracewell & Giuliani is an international law and governmental relations firm with offices in Texas, New York, Washington, Connecticut, Dubai, Kazakhstan and London.
“Having known her since the earliest days of her career, I watched her develop into one of the most trusted political voices on the scene today,” former New York Mayor Giuliani said about Mrs. Molinari.
She is married to former U.S. Representative Bill Paxon.
