Lobbying Firm Quits GCC and EAC

The lobbying firm that has been representing Gila Community College before the state legislature has announced that it is no longer working for GCC or for Eastern Arizona College.

The Payson Roundup reports that this was prompted by a controversy about a bill that would allow provisional community colleges like Gila Community College to receive the same workforce development funds that regular community colleges receive. The bill is opposed by all of the community colleges in Arizona, including Eastern Arizona College.

This created a conflict of interest for the Triadvocates lobbying firm because it represented both GCC and EAC.

Eastern Arizona College provides accreditation and administrative services to Gila Communnity College.
