from some emails received online :
The elections are proceeding as you might have heard candidate statements on the air. Don’t fret – you won’t have to rank and vote for every one, which would be a gigantic undertaking. But if you hear someone who seems to be bringing something to the station, make note. Also there are slates of candidates which are announced on the statements by members of the slates. Some are good guys, some are bad guys. I consider good guys as people who are bringing some skill or knowledge to the station. The bad guys as wanting to force their philosophy or club or particular insanity or desire which will continue the downfall of the station under the disguise or illusion of fixing it.
The board has some good members, but the majority, now way over their normal time of office, has not been beneficial to station operations for years and many have gamed the system to gain power to do whatever they plan. At this point that includes cutting the staff to ½ time and trying to bust the union. (not very progressive even if they claim the title) We need our listener-sponsors to hang in, hang on, and keep us alive while we’re under reconstruction.”

And without knowing any actualities of the people on the current ballot- so we are stupidly marking ballots without any actual knowing who is what. Just like in some governmental elections - which turn out 'wrong' after we learn of the candidates - past their easy advertised promises. .
The radio blurbs have been hard to discern when the name is barely understood on air and the message gives little validatable facts.
Questions to ask ourselves when voting for LSB now:What have these people DONE FOR KPFK or another radio station before ?
Where else did they produce valued work and what affiliations do they claim ?
Are they allied with a political point-of-view that is admitted or even open-to-dissent?
Are their motives for running for boards more than promoting 'their owngroup and views' or acquiring power ?
What experiences can they claim that gives them VALUE as a LSB member now, not in long ago past times when the world, USA, LA and KPFK was different & in different circumstances?
What can anyone wanting to Represent US KPFK donors show that they have earned that trust or that recognition?
and mostly; Who and How Many community KPFK stakeholders do they actually truly REPRESENT and that now back them, instead having of just a 'few friends' who may just as well vote for them ?
