Shameful KPFA LSB Election Results
It is a lie to say that KPFA listeners are any more astute than the average American. As we can see from the results of the election to the LSB, the KPFA listeners responded to the popularity contest routine instead of the program, just like the average American. The results are below.
KPFA Listener election
Jose Luis Fuentes-Roman
Laurence H. Shoup
KPFA Staff election
Brian D. Edwards-Tiekert
Frank T. Sterling Jr.
UCR winning candidates are:
Andrea Pritchett, Larry Shoup, Ramses Teon-Nichols, Joy Moore and Frank Sterling.
WHERE ARE THE NUMBER OF VOTES? In previous elections, we were given the number of votes each candidate received. We also should have the total number of votes counted. After all, we the listener-subscribers paid for this election. We even get that much from the government elections, but not the KPFA Local Station Board election supervisor. How about it, election supervisor? Please provide us with the total number of votes and the number of votes for each prevailing candidate.
It is not clear by how much the government operation better known as the Hate Pacifica Gang now prevails. What we can do until the 2013 election is keep score on who is the bigger hoodlum: Dan Siegel, Craig Alderson, Mark Hernandez, Jose Fuentes or Brian Edwards Tiekert. The quotable quotes should fill pages on Daniel Borgstrom's website at
What is clear is with results like these, Pacifica and KPFA have a bleak future, if any future.
