According to this blurb, Jared Blumenfeld has grown SF’s Department of Environment. It’s treated as a positive thing. To bureaucrats size definitely matters, budget size.

Jared Blumenfeld replaces Francesca Vietor, who resigned in April, joining SF Environment at a time of significant growth, with several new program areas in development. The department has an operating budget just under $2 million and will have a staff of 25 by year's end ­ up from a budget under $300 thousand and a staff of three when Vietor became director in 1999. SF Environment also administers a $13 million grant for environmental health and justice projects in Potrero Hill and Hunters Point, and an $8 million grant to launch the Power Boosters program to help small businesses underwrite the costs of energy-efficiency improvements.

Here is the current staff list as posted on their website. There are more than 25 names here.

The department is, as Mary McCallister said to me, "simply mestatic." Please continue.

Good grief! Now, the real question is - do they do any work? My neighborhood is trying to do something about numerous problem issues and haven't found any departments at City Hall helpful. Quite the opposite, in fact.

...the staff count is of full-time permanent employees, many of those listed on the website are temporary or provisional positions, so there probably are about 25 staffers there....also, the budget is mostly grant funded, the only position there that is paid from the general fund is the Executive Dir., the rest are paid for from grants, so if the department is "growing" it is because they are doing good work and getting more grants...SF Environment operates more like a nonprofit, so don't talk smack!
