Openings on the Marin Housing Authority Board




There are two term expirations on the Marin Housing Author­ity Board of Commissioners and the appointing authority is the Marin County Board of Supervisors. The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. August 30.

Applicants must be a tenant or a voucher holder of the Marin Housing Authority. The Board of Commissioners makes policies and decisions that affect public housing and the numerous other programs administered by the Marin Housing Authority.

Marin Housing is a public corporation authorized to provide decent, safe and sanitary housing for low- and moderate-income residents. It is empowered to acquire property, develop housing, issue tax-exempt bonds, enter into mortgages, trust indentures, author leases, condemn property, borrow money, accept grants and manage property.

Marin Housing is separate and distinct from the county gov­ernment, the federal government, and from other county and state agencies – much like a special district. The Housing Author­ity Commission currently consists of seven members – the five members of the Board of Supervisors plus two public housing tenants. Marin Housing operates programs in the incorporated areas of Marin under cooperation agreements with local towns and cities.

Apply online or learn more about the application process by calling the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors at (415) 473-7331. You can also request an application by mail at Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, Suite 329, 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael CA 94903 or by emailing

East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
