The Little Rock City Board
agenda for Tuesday indicates the Board will vote on a contract to pay Jeffrey Hoggard
$28,000 to lobby for the city during the legislative session. The agenda item says five people applied and a selection committee picked Hoggard after interviews.
Odies Wilson lobbied for the city as intergovernmental relations officer in 2013, but resigned from his city job after arrest in a domestic dispute.
Hoggard, who lives in Searcy, has lobbied in the past for Entergy, USAble, Blue Cross, Arkansas for Better Schools and others.
