John St. Croix, the executive director of The City’s Ethics Commission, is expected to resign after 11 years leading the organization.

St. Croix’s resignation is listed as a discussion item on the commission’s Monday meeting agenda. In St. Croix’s resignation letter, he does not state a specific reason for leaving the commission, other than saying the “time is ripe” for him to move on.

His final day at the commission will be Aug. 27, according to his letter. “While I am proud of my contributions to the Commission and our mission, the one thing I hope to be remembered for is the assembly of one of the most effective, professional and well-regarded staffs in the City,” St. Croix wrote in the letter.

“Their commitment to excellence, their consistent hard work and their ability to get things done has made me and the Commissioners proud for some time.”

The commission is expected to discuss launching a search to replace St. Croix during its 5:30 p.m. Monday meeting at City Hall. Created by voter approval of Proposition K in 1993, the commission is tasked with administering laws related to campaign finance, lobbyist and campaign consultant activity and government ethics.

St. Croix could not be reached for comment Thursday evening. To view Monday’s meeting agenda, visit the commission’s website at www.sfethics.org.
