The November 2016 ballot was one of the most crowded ballots in San Francisco history. Despite the competition for endorsements, donations and volunteers, Whitehurst/Mosher ran an effective campaign to reduce drop-off and increase support that included:
Renewing Proposition B ensured San Francisco City College would continue to serve tens of thousands of students of all incomes, ages and ethnicities across the city. The measure extended CCSF’s parcel tax for 15 years and raised the tax from $79 to $99.
Whitehurst/Mosher also successfully passed previous measures for CCSF in 1993 (sales tax), 2001 (bond), 2005 (bond) 2012 (parcel tax) and 2016 (parcel tax) in addition to doing several communication projects over the last decade.
Whitehurst/Mosher worked for nearly two years to develop the ballot measure, build community consensus, and conduct a community-based campaign that included labor, business, nonprofit leaders, elected officials and medical professionals.

Pixar Animation Studios hired Whitehurst/Mosher to manage two ballot measure campaigns to allow the expansion of its Emeryville campus. Pixar’s plan to double the size of its facilities and add parking was approved by the local Planning Commission and City Council.

Whitehurst/Mosher directed and managed all aspects of a creative grassroots campaign including coalition building, endorsements, field operations and earned and paid media.
The measures won with over 80% of the vote. In addition to approving the development plans, the campaign also helped improve the relationship between Pixar and the Emeryville community.
