JEFFERSON CITY — Former Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt has a third job — at a Washington, D.C., lobbying firm.
Blunt, who left office in January, is now a senior policy adviser and business development consultant for Cassidy & Associates. He's already an adviser for a Massachusetts private equity firm led by a son of failed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. And Blunt is a director for Copart, an auto salvage company in Fairfield, Calif.
Cassidy & Associates clients have included real estate, cosmetics and casino industries. The firm's chief operating officer, Gregg Hartley, is the former chief of staff to U.S. Rep. Roy Blunt, who is Matt Blunt's father. Also at the firm is Roy Temple, a former aide to the late Democratic Gov. Mel Carnahan and former U.S. Sen. Jean Carnahan.
