Hello. I am Larry Snellings a long time Listener and Supporter since March 1970. I am stepping up to the challenge to make this a better organization to serve the Members-the Listeners – and the Community that makes up the broad diversity that has become what KPFT is today. I have worked on other 501c non profit boards and would like the chance to help make a difference in KPFT so that my granddaughter and your grandchildren will be the next generation to listen to and benefit from 90.1 KPFT.

Optional Questions

In what ways are the station moving in a positive direction, that you would want to continue or perhaps improve?
As a listener since 1970 I look to and support the ever growing diversity of the KPFT community of members – allowing expressions from all walks and experiences of life.

In what ways are the station moving in a negative direction, that you would want to stop or change? What changes would you work for?
More movement towards community involvement Houston-Harris County-Ft Bend County-Galveston County and the metroplex that hears the voice of KPFT 24/7 needs to see more positive events to help and serve the needs of all communities.

What key experience, connections, skills or traits would you bring to the Local Station Board to advance the station's mission?
I have served on several 501c boards in the Houston area. I have served as a National Transportation Chairman for Houston events. I am a small business owner and understand what it takes to make a business continue to grow.

What ideas do you have for helping the station and the Pacifica Foundation meet the financial challenges currently being faced?
1. Reach out to other 501c groups in the area
2. Create scholarship endowments to serve our listener
3. Bring in more programs to support the community

So, what do you think ?
