Lobbyist Information

The City of Gainesville Lobbying Ordinance requires registration of all lobbyists who engage in efforts to influence the Mayor or City Commissioners or Board members of the GCRA on matters within Commission or GCRA jurisdiction. Prior to engaging in lobbying, each lobbyist will be required to file with the City Clerk a registration statement which contains general identification information as to the lobbyist and their client(s). Even if you lobby only on an occasional basis, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the lobbying rules. At this site, you will find links to the lobbying ordinance, frequently asked questions and answers, registration form, withdrawal form, and the lobbyist registry.
