Staff Candidate for the KPFT Local Station Board
Statement
I have been a volunteer with KPFT for 4+ years co-heading The Bluegrass Depot program on Sunday evenings. I have met a lot of great folks through KPFT and think the LSB would benefit from a new face that brings no-nonsense middle of the road compromise to the table.
