KPFA Local Station Board 2012 Candidates Forums
by Listener voting for votecommunityradio.org
Wednesday Nov 28th, 2012 4:31 AM
This week four on-air forums were held at KPFA, where candidates for the Local Station Board (LSB) answered listener questions, and debated each other. (Audio approximately 90 minutes each)

United for Community Radio debunked a lot of the disinformation by the opposing election slate, "Save KPFA". For more details about what "Save KPFA" is really about, please roam Daniel's Free Speech Zone at http://danielborgstrom.com

For more information about United for Community Radio, please visit http://www.votecommunityradio.org

* Ballots are due in New York on December 11. Please keep in mind that there may be mailing delays due to the weather and holidays, and send your ballots in this week! *
