PROSSER'S FIRM HIRES REDFIELD AS LOBBYIST

Former Sen. Holland L. Redfield has been hired as director of governmental affairs for Jeffrey Prosser's Innovative Communications Corp., which owns the V.I. Telephone Corp., the Daily News and the islands' cable television stations.
Redfield, 55, a six-term senator from St. Croix who decided not to seek re-election last year, said the job will involve "interfacing with the local and federal government on certain issues of basic interest," the Independent reported Saturday.
Redfield said he also will deal with "personnel development" for the company.
The Independent noted that Redfield "will be lobbying for a company that is partly regulated by a commission he used to be a member of — the Public Services Commission. Part of his job will also be to discuss with fellow colleagues in the Virgin Islands Senate legislation pertaining to the telecommunications company."
Redfield said he saw no conflict.
Redfield declined comment on the newspaper's report that he will earn more than $100,000 a year in the new post.
