EchoRidge, a Concord startup company, wants to do something that might strike a lot of people as a terrible idea: Make it easier for people to hire political lobbyists.
Hold your criticism, says Jeff Allan, the company’s CEO and founder.
“Lobbying is associated with the bad side of politics, but it’s only a tool – it’s not good or bad,” said Allan, speaking in the offices of the tiny software startup in the Ralph Pill Marketplace tower. “If you want to accomplish something, lobbying can make it happen.”
