Staff Candidate for the WPFW Local Station Board
I, Violetta Diamond, respectfully request your vote so that I can serve another term as LSB Board member.
I am a member of the Sophie’s Parlor Collective on the Jazz and Justice strip on Wednesdays. I have a deep commitment to social justice and providing jazz to the community. In addition to regularly enjoying producing and quality programming, I would like to continue striving towards making a positive difference through involvement as a LSB member.
My primary reason for wanting to serve on the LSB continues to be the goal of achieving the continued success of WPFW and the impact that the station offers to listeners and the community. I genuinely believe that WPFW is a unique gem that should be preserved, strengthened, and poised to meet the future.
During my first term I regularly attended LSB meetings and was a member of the PNB Governance and Election committees. I also served on the WPFW Outreach Committee and eventually became chairperson. The Outreach Committee has a talented group of volunteers and has been consistently functioning. We endeavor to meet our mandates, such as two Townhall Meetings a year, and continue heritage events such as the Blues Festival and the 5K run/walk. The Outreach Committee is welcoming, positive, and produces results. I have also attended many station sponsored events.
While there are continuing challenges for WPFW, such as achieving financial stability, I believe that if we work together, we can overcome any barriers in the future. It is always my goal to be positive and objective when making decisions. After an investigation and review of the facts available at the time, I offer a path towards a solution when one is available. I always endeavor to honor the gifts in other and work with board members to achieve shared goals.
With your support, and vote, I can look forward to continuing to contribute to the work of the LSB. I thank you in advance for your consideration.
