Listener Candidate
for the KPFT Local Station Board
Statement
I am committed to open, purposeful, and respectful dialogue and discussion that includes all perspectives. Communication and free expression are key to positive change. Additionally, conversations must include the needs of the stakeholders we serve, the listener community at large.

I am eager to serve alongside the existing board and to engage in the examination of current policies, programs, and initiatives, to continue efforts to support members and listeners from diverse backgrounds.

If elected, I would advocate for increasing awareness and impact of our organization through digital platforms and believe my experience as a technology manager will be helpful in moving the work of the board forward in this manner.
