In what is likely to be the year’s most savvy business decision, the newly formed Lincoln Strategy Group replaces the name Sproul & Associates, as several Arizona political consulting and lobbying groups join forces. Nathan Sproul is teaming up with Jessica Pacheco, lobbyist for the Arizona Chamber of Commerce, instrumental in opposing the Employer Sanctions law.
In recent months, Pacheco’s husband, Andrew, has devoted his efforts to chairing an initiative to sack the Employer Sanctions law. His group has the misleading name of Stop Illegal Hiring, but is crafted to protect the interests of the business community, which hires illegal aliens at substandard wages while maximizing their own profits.
As the Political Insider puts it: “That effort is led in collaboration with—you guessed it!—Nathan Sproul.”
Andrew Pacheco was an unsuccessful candidate in the 2004 election for Maricopa County Attorney.
“I think our goal is to leave the biggest public policy footprint of any firm in the Southwest,” Sproul told The Insider.
Sproul has already left quite a footprint, with his largely unsuccessful efforts on what should have been winning issues.
