Listener Candidate for the KPFT Local Station Board
Statement
I’ve listened to KPFT for the past 8 years and love the variety of music and cultural programming that comes from the station. I’m trained as a Civil engineer and have over 14 years’ experience as a professor teaching student about fundamental of engineering. I am very familiar with the grant writing process and managing grant budgets and schedule requirements.

I’d like to help KPFT find funding through grants and in general, just get the word out about this wonderful bastion of liberalism, world culture, and Texas culture.

Besides grant writing, I’d like to beef up our social media presences and see if we can do live broadcasts at various locations.

In summary,

• Write Proposals for grants at area foundations
• Beef Up Social Media Presences
• Live Broadcasts from Various Locations
