Candidate Spot
Listener Candidate for the KPFT Local Station Board
I think that the unique blend of off-beat musical shows and the diverse talk show offerings by KPFT fill a niche in this area that is only partially addressed by National Public Radio. KPFT adds a much needed local focus to this market. I think I can do my part to support it by bringing years of experience as an attorney in the areas of corporate governance and finance to the board.
Answers to Candidate Questionnaire
1. What experience, connections, skills or traits would you bring to the local station board to advance the station's mission?
  I have served as corporate secretary to three public companies. That function is primarily concerned with the operation of the board and compliance with corporate governing documents and laws. Otherwise my primary focus was on finance and securities matters.
2. What do you appreciate and value in the station's current operations?
  As I said, I think the station provides a needed local focus, as well as entertainment and information, particularly relating to music, that you don't get elsewhere in this market.
3. What would you like to see improved or changed in the station's current operations?
  No opinion on this at this time.
4. Describe what you anticipate would be your top three priorities or areas of focus if you were elected to the local station board.
  Governance and finance.
5. Sustainability is an important part of any nonprofit operation. What are your thoughts on how the board can help to improve the station's financial footing?
  I won't know until I see the books.
6. Is there anything else you would like prospective voters to know?
  Not at this time.
