Save KPFA: The Paranoia Patrol
As usual, Save KPFA posts another angry screed with little to no relationship to reality
The motion in question was authored by the public affairs director at WBAI-FM in New York, Kathy Davis. It is a paid staff-originated motion. It has nothing to do with anyone thinking or saying anything. You can propose that the moon is made of swiss cheese, the earth is flat, all Pacifica stations should play reggae music all day long or the entire staff of KPFT in Houston should be fired immediately. It has nothing to do with dissent.
It restricts delegate service (i.e being on the boards) for 3 categories of people:
1) Those convicted in a court of violating the duties of a board member of a 501c3 not for profit mutual benefit charity
2) Former employees who were fired for cause. Fired for cause means for nonperformance of job duties. It does not cover employees who resign their positions or are laid off due to jobs ending or financial distress.
3) Individuals who have been cited for violence or making threats of violence that create an unsafe work environment for others.
Any decisions that an individual is not in good standing to serve as a board member has 3 levels of appeal including an independent arbitrator if desired, and the policy is not retroactive to current board terms underway.
