Employers of Lobbyists

Here is a list of direct lobbyists’ employers organized by how much each employer has reported having spent for the purposes of lobbying the City of Seattle over the last eight quarters.

Direct lobbyists are required to disclose this information if they are paid to lobby and do so for more than any portion of four days in any calendar quarter and are compensated $5,000 or more in that quarter by a specific employer.

"Lobby" and "lobbying" each mean communications with City Council members, the Mayor, City officers or employees or agents either of the Legislative Department or working in the Mayor's office, a department director, or a deputy director or other employee who reports directly to a department director in an attempt to influence any of those individuals to develop, propose, draft, consider or reconsider, promote, adopt, enact, reject, take favorable action upon, approve, disapprove, veto, or fail to take action upon legislation.

Click on a lobbyist’s name to see the reports they have filed with the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission.

The Elections Code was amended in 2015 to provide that no candidate for City office may knowingly accept any contribution directly or indirectly from any entity or person who during the past 12 month period has paid $5,000 or more to a lobbyist or lobbying entity for lobbying the City of Seattle.
