Lobbyist Filing



The Board has published a distillation of what is available on the City’s Data Portal: here is an Excel spreadsheet showing every lobbyist currently registered, and every client that lobbyist represents, along with the lobbyist’s employer (which is often different from the lobbyist’s clients), and their respective contact information.  You can use the Control-F function on your keyboard to search for any lobbyist or client by name. We will update this posting regularly. We hope to update this on a monthly basis.  We hope this makes our lobbyist website easier to use.  Note: for the most up-to-date information, please contact us at 312-744-9660
