Seattle Subway’s political director, Jonathan Hopkins, is moving on to be the Executive Director of Commute Seattle. We’re sad to see him go, he has done a plainly incredible job for Seattle Subway and our region and will be very much missed — all of the congrats to Jonathan on his new role!
He leaves big shoes to fill but a big opportunity for someone who wants to get involved in transit advocacy in our region.
The Seattle Subway Political Director is a central role to our organization. This person is the face of Seattle Subway. This means regular contact with Sound Transit and other government agencies, local politicians and media (print, online, radio and TV).
Duties include but aren’t limited to:
- Attending monthly board meetings (remotely if necessary).
- Regular appearances at volunteer events.
- Maintaining relationships with regional institutions, agencies, politicos and other stakeholders.
We are looking for someone who is excited about what is happening with transit in our city, has excellent communications skills and a passion to get involved. Backgrounds in communications, media relations, political outreach, non-profit work and transit advocacy are all big pluses.
Seattle Subway is an all volunteer organization. If you are interested in joining our team – email contact@SeattleSubway.org
