JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) - An eastern Tennessee city has hired a Nashville lobbying firm on a $30,000 annual retainer as it seeks to increase its presence with lawmakers at the state capital.

Johnson City commissioners approved the contract with Windrow Phillips Group last week. The deal covers work with lawmakers, the governor’s office, state departments and assisting in pushing the city’s legislative agenda.

City Manager Pete Peterson told the Johnson City Press (https://bit.ly/1wnVUAl ) city officials wanted to ensure they were heard during legislative sessions, which generally run from January through May.

The client list of Windrow Phillips includes Amazon.com, Bank of America, AARP and Metro Nashville.
