**Volunteer Opportunity** City of Oakland Public Ethics Commission
The City of Oakland Public Ethics Commission (PEC) is now accepting applications to fill one PEC-appointed Commissioner position, as part of its seven-member volunteer citizen board. This is a special vacancy to begin February 2, 2021 and will expire in January 21, 2023. Deadline is March 5, 2021.
Each member of the Commission must be an Oakland resident who is registered to vote in Oakland. Three Commissioners are appointed respectively by the Mayor, City Attorney, and City Auditor. The remaining four are appointed by the full Commission on a rotating schedule. Once appointed, a Commissioner is expected to participate in monthly meetings and occasional subcommittee meetings to provide guidance to staff in the conduct of the Commission’s business, make final decisions on enforcement matters, and serve as an adjudicative body/hearing officer (neutral judge) in cases that require an administrative hearing.
