During the second quarter of 2013, Ramba Consulting Group brought in up to $249,999 for legislative consulting, up from $99,999 during the second quarter of 2012. For executive lobbying, the two-member team totaled up to $49,999 in the second quarters of both years.
David Ramba and Alison Carvajal have wide breadth in the interests of their 27 clients, and a few distinct areas of expertise. They work extensively with ancillary health care provider groups, including the Florida Chiropractic Association, Florida Optometric Association, Florida Optometry Eye Health Fund, Florida Nurse Practitioner Network, and the Florida State Massage Therapy Association. There’s never a dull Session with these groups in the mix.
Ramba and Carvajal also deal a lot with water, handling legislative and executive relations for the East County Water Control District, the Florida Water Quality Association, and the SunCoast Aquatic Nature Center Association. AT&T was also among Ramba’s top-paying clients this quarter, compensating as much as $19,999 for legislative lobbying.
Each quarter, lobbyists who are registered to represent clients before Florida’s legislature or executive branch must submit reports detailing their client roster and compensation ranges. This week, reports are due for the period spanning April 1 through June 30, 2013 and reflect the year-round work that these firms do in representing interests that span every industry sector.
