Lobbying compensation: PinPoint Results earns up to $500K in third quarter

Median estimates indicate $435,000 in third-quarter pay.

The six-person team at PinPoint Results earned up to $500,000 in pay last quarter, according to newly filed lobbying compensation reports.

Florida lobbyists report their pay in ranges covering $10,000 increments up to $50,000, after which lobbyists must report exact pay. Quarterly reports also list broad ranges for overall compensation ranges for the quarter.

Compensation reports covering July through September are due to the state Nov. 14.

According to the new filings, the team of Robert BeckTanya JacksonBryan CherryMarti Coley Eubanks and Jo Morris earned between $100,000 and $250,000 lobbying the Legislature, and netted the same amount lobbying the Governor and Cabinet.

Median estimates show the firm’s 41 clients earned them $250,000 in legislative pay and $185,000 in executive branch earnings, for a total haul of $435,000.

The firm’s legislative lobbying report listed eight clients, most of them in the health care industry, in the $10,000 to $20,000 pay range: Aspire Health Partners, Broward County, Florida Public Guardian Coalition, HCA Healthcare, Independent Living Systems, SEIU 1199 United Health Care Workers, The Arcanum Group and WellSky.

Capital Asphalt and Independent Living Systems were the top paid contracts on the executive report, with each falling in the $10,000 to $20,000 range.

The remainder of PinPoint’s paid legislative contracts measured in at an estimated $5,000 apiece.

The third-quarter numbers keep pace with PinPoint’s first and second quarter reports, which showed median earnings of $435,000 and $425,000, respectively.

Assuming the trend continues in the fourth quarter, the firm would earn an estimated $1.72 million for the year, with top end earnings of $2 million. That would be an improvement over 2018, when the firm earned an estimated $1.6 million.
