Last month, Scott Russell left the staff of the Minnesota Budget Project to return to freelance writing and pursue volunteer projects. Many of you will likely recognize his name because Scott was a frequent contributor on the blog over the last two years. We are sad to have lost a valuable member of our team, but wish him all the best in his new adventure.
Scott’s parting has opened up the opportunity for us to welcome a new Policy Analyst on board. We are looking for someone with a strong analytic background who will contribute to producing timely and credible research on a range of policy issues thatimprove economic opportunity for low- and moderate-income families, reduce racial disparities and promote sound fiscal decision-making in Minnesota.
The position is not only an opportunity to work in Minnesota’s policy community, but also to learn from other groups in national networks. The Minnesota Budget Project is part of the State Fiscal Analysis Initiative, which is coordinated by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and brings together nonpartisan, independent, nonprofit organizations in more than 30 states.
Applications for the Policy Analyst position will be accepted until June 26. More details on the position and how to apply are available on Minnesota Council of Nonprofit’s Nonprofit Job Board.
