Hello, I’m David Lynch, a gray-beard software engineer, and I’m running for the KPFA Local Station Board.
The disastrous Bush Administration drove me to listen to Pacifica with riveted attention, because mainstream media had completely dropped the ball. Programs like Larry Bensky’s Sunday Salon and Ian Master’s Background Briefing provided a precious glimpse of reality.
I see Pacifica and KPFA as sacred.
My views on station governance are aligned with SaveKPFA, whose members include Brian Edward-Tiekert, Mitch Jeserich, Mark Mericle, Aileen Alfandary, Philip Maldari, Kris Welch and Larry Bensky.
I’m moved by the words of Noam Chomsky, Chris Hedges, Naomi Klein and Alan Watts.
If elected, I’ll make pragmatic decisions to put the network on solid financial footing but without selling our soul. I’ll bring my engineering background to help modernize the network. And I’ll do everything in my power to ensure that KPFA will continue to serve as a lifeline of precious objective information.
