Check out SaveKPFA's endorsers & candidates, and then vote!

Thursday Nov 22nd, 2012 12:37 PM
If you have your ballot: fill it out and mail it in now! If you’re eligible to vote in KPFA’s board elections, you should have gotten your ballot last week. The ballots arrived in nondescript envelopes marked “Pacifica Foundation” (not “KPFA”). If you didn’t get a ballot, or need to request a replacement, call this number: 1-866-720-4357 or email election [at] kpfa.org as soon as possible.

DEADLINE for receipt of ballots back in New York is December 11. See the candidate list at savekpfa.org. For the first year ever, you will not be able to turn in ballots at KPFA — all ballots have to be sent in by mail. They have to arrive at a central counting facility in New York by the deadline of December 11th. The mail system can move more slowly around the holidays, so mail your ballot as early as possible!

PLEASE NOTE: vote for all 9 SaveKPFA candidates, ranking them from 1 to 9 in the order you prefer — or if you’d rather not decide on a ranking, give all 9 candidates a ranking of “1.”

Need a little inspiration? Sasha Lilly, co-host of KPFA’s Against the Grain, and co-author of Catastrophism: The Apocalyptic Politics of Collapse and Rebirth, endorses SaveKPFA. “While Pacifica’s governance system is clearly broken,” Lilley says, “it’s still important that people vote in this election — and vote SaveKPFA. If you think that Pacifica should not call the shots at KPFA, and if you support the work of skilled reporters and broadcasters — paid and unpaid — then please vote for all the candidates on the SaveKPFA slate.”

Don’t be fooled! The incumbents from the “Community Radio” slate defended the Morning Show purge, and Pacifica’s anti-union attacks. It’s important that you vote for the entire list of SaveKPFA candidates at http://www.saveKPFA.org.

Here are the SaveKPFA endorsers:

Exchange with a confused voter ... thought you all might appreciate
this. Most people don't have much to go on except the endorsers:

A listener wrote:

I just got my ballot in the mail today. I have no idea which of the two
sides to vote for. I have great admiration for some of the endorsers on
each side. I am on the email list from each camp. I cared enough for
KPFA that I was at the barricades in '99 at Grove and University Avenue,
yet with the best will in the world to do right by the station, I just
don't know what that right is. Any idea to help me be clearer?

I responded:
Hi Listener:
I am one of the endorsers for the "United for Community Radio" group. I
hope you will rank them #1 through #10 on your ballot. I have great
admiration for some of the endorsers of the other slate, too. But I
think they are very narrow focussed on preserving jobs that KPFA cannot
afford to pay, and unfortunately, many of them don't really know much
about the internal struggles at KPFA that are the source of the whole
struggle.

I believe the UCR candidates are more well-rounded, better connected to
more communities that KPFA needs to reach to expand and rebuild its
dwindling listener & donor base, more focussed on financial
responsibility, and also more likely to eventually bring peace between
the warring factions on KPFA's staff because of their respect and
support for both the unpaid staff and paid staff. I hope so, at least.

Thanks for asking!

Carol

Then read Michael Parenti's statement at
http://www.votecommunityradio.org/?p=2154
and here:

“I am supporting the United for Community Radio slate because I don’t want a KPFA that is ruled by an elite peerage of paid staff.

These self-appointed elites consume almost the entire budget while producing only 20 percent of the programs. I also would like the dedicated volunteer staff to be able to have an organized union voice of its own. And it would be grand if we could get more diversity in programming and personnel from time to time, bringing progressive ideas to the fore instead of the same old NPR imitations.

And I wish the elite paid staff would show some regard for KPFA’s (listener-supported) budget and not act as if they are pitted against a rich corporate giant.”
