Staff Candidate for the KPFA Local Station Board
I have been listening to KPFA since I moved to Bay Area in 1989. I became interested in the station through their wildly interesting political programming, and through a friend. I was encouraged to run in 2016. I was elected to the LSB in 2016 as a listener candidate. I have been serving on the LSB since 2017, aht the PNB since 2018. Have served on the National Finance Committee the entire time, as well as several other committees. During the coronavirus, I began working on a radio show for KPFA. Amazingly, it seems to be working out, and I look forward to continuing in that capacity. In addition, there are still a few things I want to accomplish for KPFA using my past experience on the PNB, and I hope you will honor me with your vote, so I can get them done.
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 a background in music and business. The latter is relevant and needed for the organization.
2. What do you appreciate and value in the station's current operations?
  I appreciate the fresh perspective that comes from KPFA's programs.
3. What would you like to see improved or changed in the station's current operations?
  I would love to see us get back to something resembling normal operations. The pandemic has limited the sense of community that we all get by working together.
4. Describe what you anticipate would be your top three priorities or areas of focus if you were elected to the local station board.
  I want to help people to understand the finances of the organization. I want people to work together for things that require collective effort for Pacifica. And I want to work for the fairest possible arrangement of resources in the organization.
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 believe I answered this question in #4.
6. Is there anything else you would like prospective voters to know?
  This is my final term in office. I have a lot of institutional experience at this point, and I would hit the ground running with my priorities and an idea of how best to implement them.
