Statement from Sunlight Foundation's board chairman

by Mike KleinSEPT. 20, 2016, 2:13 P.M.

The board of directors of the Sunlight Foundation has reached some
important conclusions about our future. We want to share them with our
friends, funders, employees, partners, and everyone who has been a
part of our work over the last decade.

In July, we officially launched a search for a new executive director.
As we noted in the position description, we sought “a leader who will
closely collaborate with board, staff and funders to shape a coherent,
forward-thinking strategy to maximize the Foundation’s impact.”
Finding a candidate with a compelling strategic vision and a promising
capacity to execute it was our lodestar.

We searched far and wide. Our search consultant, m/Oppenheim, reached
out to a list of well over 100, a number of whom became candidates
while others were sources into other potential candidates. They came
from the fields of journalism, public policy, government, and
technology. We ultimately received and considered approximately two
dozen applications. Of those, the Search Committee ultimately chose to
interview five candidates. Last week we met as a board to interview
two final candidates and consider their visions for the organization.

As I wrote earlier this year, Sunlight has successfully catalyzed a
movement. While we are enormously proud of what Sunlight has
accomplished over the past decade, and has come to stand for, we are
also aware of the changes time has wrought.

We are aware that the robust maturation of technology over the past
decade has — happily but substantially — reduced the urgency of
Sunlight’s early role as a leading transparency innovator. In
addition, the board had to recognize that Sunlight’s initiating
objective— to build support for better legislation against and
regulation of the power of money in politics— has been significantly
limited by the US Supreme Court’s 5-4 Citizens United decision.

Those factors required a rethinking of what, if anything, can most
effectively be done with the resources available to continue the
technology/transparency cause and Sunlight’s role in it. We’ve done
that work, and here is what we have determined.

The board has not found a candidate for executive director who
persuaded us of both a compelling new strategic vision and of their
capacity to lead Sunlight to its achievement. Accordingly, we have
determined to explore alliances with other organizations similarly
motivated, perhaps merging with one of them, in an arrangement that
advances and preserves Sunlight’s mission and identity with increased
efficiency and effectiveness.

During this time period, we will deliver on all existing obligations
to funders and partners, making certain that we continue the great
work we’re doing in the What Work Cities initiative, for instance. We
are making necessary adjustments to staff in accordance with this
direction.

We will discontinue our tool building and database maintenance
activities, and encourage others to continue our most promising
projects. The decision to retire OpenCongress is an example.

In reaching these conclusions, the board recognizes and honors what
the Sunlight Foundation has achieved. Thanks to the efforts of
hundreds, we have compiled a record of pioneering innovation in
policy, governance, and technology. We have built a deep well of
institutional knowledge; a remarkable portfolio of initiatives,
programs, products, experiments, reporting, and infrastructures; and
an unmatched network of staff and alumni who are among the most
accomplished experts, activists, advocates and technologists in their
fields. These are important and valuable elements of a broader
movement to revitalize our democratic institutions. We aim to find the
right alliance or arrangement that will carry them forward.

I helped start this organization hoping it would play an active role
as a monitor and constructive critic of government policies and
practices affecting transparency. As we explore potential alliances
with other organizations over the next few weeks, I look forward to
continuing that work.
