Listener Candidate for the WPFW Local Station Board
Statement
I have been a faithful listener to WPFW for over 20 years and a sustaining member of almost 3 years. I love the commercial-free format and the information shared. I also like the since of empowerment that experience as a result of being part of the reason for this station’s continued existence and success. I would like to further contribute to this station’s success by serving on the Local Station Board. I am not one for answering telephones but I am certain I can help in other ways. I would at least like to try.
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 love the music.
3. What would you like to see improved or changed in the station's current operations?
  The station's website is past due for an overhaul. I would be glad to work with your current site maintainers to make the site more appealing. I also believe funds can be raised via golf, tennis, concerts, and other crowd-drawing events. This would be in addition to the merchandise offered during the telethons.
4. Describe what you anticipate would be your top three priorities or areas of focus if you were elected to the local station board.
  Website improvement (a more appealing site can draw more visitors, which can raise more money)
Fund raising
Programming (I miss my Zydeco. I there a Zydeco dj out there who would volunteer to share their love of the genre?)
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?
  Make the website more attractive and user-friendly
Host fundraising events such as golf and tennis tournaments/outings and concerts
6. Is there anything else you would like prospective voters to know?
  I have been a faithful listener to WPFW for over 20 years. I love the commercial-free format and the information shared. There are forces out there, such as New Day Pacifica and other right-wing interest groups, that threaten to undermine the services this station provides its listeners. I would like to help in whatever way I can to keep the WPFW that I know and love alive and vibrant for at least another 44+ years.
