Head of Embattled S.F. Nonprofit had Been Accused of Mismanaging City Funds Before

John Pelissero, director, government ethics, quoted by the San Francisco Chronicle.

The question now is whether the city should have taken different actions once Doyle began running the Providence Foundation.

John Pelissero, director of government ethics said city officials have a responsibility to properly vet nonprofit leaders to ensure that “taxpayer dollars aren’t going to be squandered.”

“They need to make sure up front that they’re starting with an individual and organization that are trustworthy and have a record of being effective,” Pelissero said.
