NEW YORK CITY – When the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) decided to raise fares in May, one of those voting for the increase was a well-known lobbyist.

Harry Giannoulis, a partner in The Parkside Group, is also a member of the TLC.

Giannoulis is an unpaid adviser to council Speaker Gifford Miller. He was appointed under former Speaker Peter Vallone, and has continued to serve past the expiration date of his term in 2001.

Giannoulis said the unpaid TLC job preceded his lobbying activities and the Conflicts of Interest Board has approved the arrangement.
