1929 Martin Luther King Drive Berkeley, CA
The violation of election rules in the 2006 KPFA Board of Directors election threatens the viability and fairness of the entire election process. KPFA is the largest community radio station in the United States and has a budget of $4.5 million dollars and a staff of over 44 full time workers.
Candidates and listener members of KFPA will be having a press conference outside the station on Monday November 23, 2006 at 12:00 noon to provide documentation that the election process has been tainted by illegal election violations including:
1.Distribution of campaign literature by the Concerned Listeners Group in the station's public offices and phone room during the marathon.
2. Refusal of the KPFA election officer Tracy Rosenberg to run radio carts of the candidates as they have been completed and after ballots have been mailed and already received by the listener members.
3.Election rules and procedures have not been provided in writing to all the candidates and instead rules have been made by word of mouth for some candidates and not others.
4.The election officer has been complicit with some of the candidates and slates in allowing the distribution of literature in KFPA facilities.
5.KFPA election officer has prevented candidate Steve Zeltzer from running as a listener for the KFPA Board Of Directors despite the fact he is no longer a programmer thereby disenfranchising him and the listeners.
The KPFA election candidates and listeners subscribers will speak about these violations and what needs to be done to have a democratic election
