Former Congresswoman Nancy Johnson couldn’t win enough votes in Connecticut’s Fifth Congressional District to secure re-election in 2006.

Come Monday, January 12, Johnson needs only five votes in Hartford’s Court of Common Council to win a $13,000 a month, six month lobbying contract for her new employer, the Tennessee law/lobbying firm of Baker Donelson.

That’s more than $65,000 from January to June 2009, with an option to renew for another six months, to lobby for Hartford’s wish list of $50 million for levee repair, and a few million more for a new public safety complex.
