Charter Lobbyist Delaney Leaves

Lobbyist Megan Delany, VP and senior counsel, federal government relations, for Charter Communications, has left the company.

Her assistant, Crystal Dollins, confirmed that she no longer works there. "She was let go yesterday," said Dollins, who added that Charter was "reorganizing the department." Dollins wasn't sure whether Delany would be replaced. "They're not sure at this point," she said.

The return message to Delany's e-mail address indicated that she had exited, and referred "any issues or inquiries related to federal government relations or public policy matters," to Dollins.

Delany had been with Charter since 2006, a lobbying post that had been vacant for the prior three years. Before that, she had worked on Capitol Hill and for XO Communications and Allegiance Telecom.
