I am running for the LSB because I have been a listener- sponsor for nearly 15 years and I am troubled by the direction the station’s programming has been taking over the last several years. My beloved KPFK has been taken to some right leaning direction and I fear if we do not get involved and do something now then it will not be long before the station begins taking corporate funding and airing commercials and that will be the final nail in the coffin for this lone progressive voice in the wilderness. I have been a union carpenter for over 25 years, an activist, and an outspoken advocate for women’s rights, equal rights, the poor and elderly of our community! I have stood up for workers and paid for doing so yet I have always come back time and time again to keep abusive employers for allowing abuse in the workplace. I am a fight, I am Latino, I am a progressive, and I am running as a candidate for your local station board — VOTE FOR ME TO REPRESENT YOU!
