Scott Shafer

Scott Shafer is Senior Editor of KQED’s California Politics and Government Desk. For the past two decades he’s been covering local, state and national candidates, ballot measures, campaigns and elected officials. Before joining KQED Scott himself worked in government and politics as a press secretary and chief of staff. He knows the world of politics from the inside and outside. And when he’s not covering politics, he’s often in a pool playing water polo.
