KPFA LAB elections underway 8-16-01

From: John Sheridan Date: Thu Aug 16, 2001 1:45 am
Subject: KPFA Local Advisory Board Election Underway - Relevant Dates

Supporters of democratizing Pacifica,

Here are some of the adjusted relevant dates for the upcoming KPFA Local Advisory Board election, which nomination period officially begins today!!

Nominations: August 15 - October 21
Campaign: October 22 - November 12
Voting: November 13 - December 13
Counting & Reporting: Dec 14- Dec. 18
Changeover: January 9 LAB meeting

The LAB also approved for this year only expanding the voter qualifying period for donations to be $25 in the past 1-25 months

Consider running for the KPFA LAB if you can come to the meetings, fight to help reclaim the network from the people who wish to see it neutralized and sold, and if you wish to go beyond the past structure to begin creating a democratic culture of listener empowerment, awareness and participation - without which Pacifica will cease its historic mission.

Please contact us if you are interested in running, if you know someone who is, or if you wish to help us raise funds for the election, to outreach to diverse listeners, help with nomination events, publicity, with rides, phone tree work, etc. We look forward to your participation at whatever level you can.

We will be developing an Election web site, an official email address and our mailing address is:
KPFA Election Committee
P.O. Box 13349
Berkeley, CA 94712-4349

Leave messages for us at KPFA at (510) 848-6767 x 626

We'll send nomination packets to you if you give us your contact information. Thank you.
