Sandra Fish (KUNC) – A Colorado lobbyist is facing steep fines for failing to register. The Secretary of State’s Office notified Collon Kennedy on Thursday that he owes nearly $74,000 in late fees.
The matter came to the attention of the office after state Sen. Irene Aguilar filed a complaint against Kennedy. The Denver Democrat observed Kennedy lobbying for Walmart on a liquor sales bill she opposed. When she looked him up in the Secretary of State’s lobbyist database, she couldn’t find him listed.
“I know that he’s been there lobbying a long time, and I had not realized that he wasn’t registered,” Aguilar said.
