Editors note: As lobbying shops report their second quarter compensation fees, several firms’ numbers are worth examining closer.
Married lobbyist power duo Frank and Tracy Mayernick took home more than 2013 TallyMadness victories this year: in the second quarter of lobbyist compensation reports, their firm showed a boost in legislative clients from 22 this time last year, to 32 last quarter, to 37 today.
To date in 2013, The Mayernick Group has reported compensation for executive and legislative lobbying of up to $749,998.
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.
This quarter, the Mayernicks’ largest paying clients include the Florida Optometric Association, Boyd Gaming Corporation, the Rubin Group, and Capital Insight; this is in addition to their diverse range of other clients, such as Citrus Health Network, Armor Correctional, March of Dimes, HCA Healthcare, Florida Power & Light, US Sugar, and Dredging Contractors of America.
In March’s TallyMadness contest, Tracy and Frank were selected by and among their peers as two of the ‘best’ lobbyists in town, and no doubt their clients are in agreement.
