Note that this list contains multiple worksheets each with a slightly different view of the information. Specific Clients were identified as "Wind Related" based on judgment. Please let us know if any were missed or miscoded. I'm sure we missed some. Also, we probably could have coded every large Portland law firm as Wind Related but we didn't for this exercise given much of their work falls into areas other than wind.
Guess which Client (whom a lobbyist works for) has the most lobbyists over the 17 year period? (Click on the extreme right worksheet for your answer). Hint: Their office is a four minute walk to the state house.
Double click any number to see the detail it represents. Use the dropdown arrow to isolate "Wind Related" clients.

As noted above, the source of the information was:
However, after noticing that lobbyist Patricia Aho, was not shown there to have been a lobbyist for Horizon Wind Energy (now EDP Renewables), I went back to an old lobbyist list we had from 2011 (generated 1/23/12) and confirmed Aho was indeed a lobbyist for them. I have no idea why that list shows her as a Horizon Wind lobbyist and the newly created list (17 years in Excel) has no record of her as a lobbyist for Horizon Wind.
The 2011 list is here:
From the 2011 file under Patrica Aho on page 4:
So this appears to be a discrepancy between the 2011 lobbyist list and the 2002-2018 17 year lobbyist list obtained on 2/25/18. If the one instance I recalled (Aho for Horizon Wind) was discrepant, this raises the question as to why and are there more discrepancies?
