We’re Hiring: Development Director

The San Francisco Public Press, a 12-year-old independent nonprofit news organization producing web, print and radio journalism, seeks a full-time Development Director to work with the Publisher and Executive Director on the design and execution of a diversified fundraising strategy. This is an opportunity to work with an organization dedicated to publishing and broadcasting reliable, relevant and professionally produced investigative and community journalism for diverse and often under-served communities in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. 

We are looking for a high-energy fundraising professional who believes in our public-service journalism mission and shares our desire to improve the lives of people in our region. 

The San Francisco Public Press is committed to a path that promotes diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging within our organization, and through our journalism and community engagement. These tenets are fundamental to supporting a culture of trust between our organization and the communities we serve. We seek to hire colleagues who are committed to these values. We will help the new Development Director get up to speed on the world of nonprofit and mission-driven media via direct training, conferences, newsletters and industry-specific professional development opportunities.

2019 Election: Single-candidate and Other Races

Other Local Races

The races for several elected offices have either only one contender — like Paul Miyamoto, who is running unopposed for sheriff, or José Cisneros, the only candidate for treasurer — or only one well-financed contender who is widely expected to win. Mayor London Breed is running for re-election against five challengers, none of whom have experience holding political office or attracted significant financial backing. “Civic” talked with San Francisco State University associate professor of political science Jason McDaniel about these races, their significance, and why so many candidates are running without formidable opposition.
