Who’s who: Anchorage Assembly to vote on 3 lobbyist contracts


The Anchorage Assembly on Tuesday will vote on lobbying contracts for three lobbying companies, which will represent Anchorage to the Alaska State Legislature during the upcoming session, which starts Jan. 19 and lasts between 90-120 days typically.

The lobbyists are Sonia Henrick, Reggie Joule, and Jordan Marshall.

The three are expected to be awarded $60,0000, $55,000, and $50,000, respectively. All have represented the municipality in the past.

The contracts for the lobbyists are on the Assembly’s regular meeting agenda.

  • This idiocy is just further proof of what you can expect when people that have no ability to properly control their budgets in their personal lives get into positions of attempting to manage the financial affairs of a government entity.

  • I love reading Must Read Alaska, but honestly this building on the article regarding the Assembly voting on lobbyist contracts looks like none that I have ever seen in Anchorage.

  • What do the Alaska state legislators from Anchorage do during the legislative session in Juneau? Don’t they advocate for what’s wanted/needed in Anchorage? What is the job of these lobbyists? (It seems to me that Reggie Joule would be more suited to lobbying for Kotzebue.)

    Why would Anchorage tax payers agree to pay three lobbyists $170,000.00 to do what the state legislators are supposed to do?

  • So the public and journalists are excluded, but lobbyist get in??? Unbelievable!
    I had high hopes this year that they could actually get something done with the Baranof hotel bar closed.

  • Lobbyists don’t do jack for their money.
    In the past, they just brought drugs, alcohol and sex to Juneau and got legislators high and laid. Now, they just brag about their influence with corporations, municipalities, businesses and other politicians………hoping to sway a few legislators with their b*llsh*t and hoping to sign up more corps, munis, businesses as clients. Lobbyists are a curse to a legislature.
