I am Deborah Shafto and I am running for the board because I believe that now, more than ever, we need an effective way to communicate news and events to the progressive community. Radio (KPFT) can provide inter-group communication, support, news and event coordination essential to progressive action. KPFT needs a board that can work with management and perform necessary tasks.
I have been a member since the take-back, and served as the interim committee chair until the bylaws were written and elections were held. I organized the first ARDC, the first outreach committee and the first bylaws revision committee. I am a hard working volunteer and I want to contribute to finding solutions in these critical and difficult financial times.
