Chamber Watch Director

Public Citizen’s Congress Watch division

Public Citizen is a national, non-partisan, public interest group with more than 350,000 members and activists.

A project of Public Citizen, Chamber Watch aims to combat the power of the leading trade association for Big Business, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber is one of the largest conduits of Dark Money in U.S. politics, and is, by far, the biggest lobbying organization.

Misleadingly claiming to represent the interests of millions of small businesses, the Chamber advances a corporate extremist agenda designed to benefit the largest and most powerful corporations in America.

Chamber Watch shines a light on the activities of the Chamber, challenges its misrepresentations and distortions of fact, works to end massive, anonymous corporate spending in elections, and seeks to offset the undue influence of the Chamber over federal and state policy. The project conducts research and communications on the myriad activities of the U.S. Chamber, and works in coalition with consumer protection, environmental and other public interest groups, small business organizations and labor unions.


  • Management.  Manage a Chamber Watch communications/research staffer. 

  • Strategy.  Develop campaign plans and strategy and implement public education and media work concerning the U.S. Chamber and its influence in collaboration with the Congress Watch Director and other senior staff. 

  • Collaboration.  Serve as liaison to other Public Citizen divisions on U.S. Chamber issues, work with the Public Citizen led Corporate Reform Coalition that focuses on corporate money in politics, and also work to build up a coalition focused exclusively on the impacts of the Chamber on the political process.

  • Publications.  Oversee production and dissemination of analyses, reports, fact sheets, and testimony.

  • Media.  Develop and maintain media relationships and respond to inquiries working closely with the Chamber Watch communications staffer and the rest of the Public Citizen media team to produce editorial board memoranda, press releases, letters to the editor, and opinion editorials.

  • Development.  Work closely with the Congress Watch Director on fundraising, including outreach to foundations and major donors, written proposals and reports, and electronic solicitations.


    J.D., M.A., or comparable experience preferred.  Five years of experience in a legislative setting or in campaign-oriented public interest advocacy, including three years as a supervisor.  Proven interpersonal and management skills.  Outstanding analytical thinking, political judgment, and oral and written communication skills.  High energy and enthusiasm.
