Financial Crisis, Lobbyist Pay Cuts

Is the financial crises lowering lobbyists’ earnings?  Yes, according to this one article from Florida.

Mayor Tony Kennon said Tuesday that while Orange Beach very much wants to continue its relationships with lobbyists on Capitol Hill and in the Statehouse, he has asked both of them to work for less money in 2009, which municipal financial planners are forecasting to be a lean year.

On Tuesday, the council will consider renewing the contract of its federal lobbyist, Ray Cole of Van Scoyoc Associates, who was paid $5,500 a month, or $66,000, in 2008, Kennon said.
