From the Daily News:
A who's who of top lobbyists served on the host committee of Bill de Blasio’s $1 million fund-raiser with Hillary Clinton, it was revealed Tuesday.
Their participation in Monday night’s bash drew fire from de Blasio’s Republican rival in the mayor’s race, Joe Lhota.
“The level of Bill de Blasio’s hypocrisy is alarming. He takes cash from developers and special interests while telling New Yorkers he supports something different,” Lhota spokeswoman Jessica Proud said.
De Blasio spokesman Dan Levitan declined comment.
The host committee included James Capalino, who has lobbied for Rudin Management, developers of high-end condos near the old St. Vincent’s Hospital, and lobbyist Suri Kasirer, who met with de Blasio on Brooklyn’s contentious Atlantic Yards project.
Others on the host committee included Stan Natapoff and Alexandra Stanton of Empire Global Ventures, Rachel Amar of Waste Management of New York, and Michael Woloz of Connelly McLaughlin & Woloz.
