Local governments are the specialty of Peebles & Smith and its lobbying team of Bill Peebles and John Wayne Smith, who brought in nearly $60,000 in the first quarter of 2014.
In the Pebbles & Smith lobbying roster are four legislative and four executive clients, for reported earnings of up to $29,997 for legislative and $29,997 for executive services, for a total maximum of $59,994.
The three highest-paying clients to Pebbles & Smith in Q1 are the City of Archer, located just outside of Gainesville; environmental group The Conservation Campaign; and the Florida Association of Counties. Each customer gave the firm up to $9,999 each for legislative, and the same for executive advocacy.
According to its website, the firm is as equally comfortable in representing small towns—with populations less than 1,000—as they are will large statewide associations.
