2011 - great time to address unresolved election issues

National Elections Committee - 29 April, 2013 - 09:46
This week I received the alarming news that the lawsuit
Cohen v. Pacifica Foundation et. al. is still ongoing.
It hopefully will be dismissed shortly will all parties covering
their own legal expenses. But that news prompted me to
look back at my final report as National Elections Supervisor.

on amending By-Laws proposals

National Elections Committee - 29 April, 2013 - 09:46
Thanks for your thoughtful reply, Terry.
I agree that a "2-year" hiatus would be too restrictive,
and that a 23-month, or even 18-month hiatus
would be more managable.
These proposals are, naturally, open to amendment
before being sent to the membership for adoption.
Thanks to all of you for your willingness to serve

Because of the "a year equals 365 days" PNB misinterpretation of
bylaws language, a 23-month out of service period is preferable -- it
would prevent the two year hiatus becoming effectively a four year ban
on returning candidates if a second week of December Delegate seating
date was scheduled a couple of years after a third week of December

proposed Pacifica By-Laws amendment

National Elections Committee - 29 April, 2013 - 09:46
Dear PNB Election Committee members,
Please allow me to resubmit for your consideration a proposal I made
four years ago shortly after I became National Elections Supervisor. It
was based on my observations from two terms as Local Election Supervisor
for KPFK in 2003-4 and 2006, and from discussions with board members.

Fwd: RE: FW: election expenses and other updates for PNB meeting

National Elections Committee - 29 April, 2013 - 09:46
Attached is the final (I think) spreadsheet listing expenses for the 2009 and 2010 Pacifica delegate (LSB) elections. Thanks to Efren in the National Office for getting this compiled for us.
Note that line 266 has expenses for the 2009 elections ($243,740.78), and line 267 has expenses for the 2010 elections ($156,754.85). These lines have the individual totals for each station, as well as the grand totals.

Considering how Lonnie perfomed as CFO, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot more
were left out. He kept his job based on political loyalties. I can still remember when he
joked at the 2007 Houston meeting at the Crown Plaza downtown, that he didn't know about all the bank accounts that had been set up by the take back movement and doubted that he ever would.

National Elections Committee - 29 April, 2013 - 09:46
Sounds great, unless you're the secretary, of course. :-)
Some time ago Lonnie Hicks compiled a list of motions passed by the
PNB: he omitted a crucial one of the Elections Committee, and I think
the list stopped in 2007 or so, but it would be a good thing to ask
an executive secretary to do, just compile all the PNB motions in one

National Elections Committee - 29 April, 2013 - 09:46
Good idea, Carolyn, but I probably won't have time to get all those together in time for the deadline (tomorrow) for those reports. Ken, as Elections committee secretary, can you help?
However, an even better solution, in the interest of transparency, would be for us to post all the minutes with the agendas on the kpftx calendar, so those not on the PNB can also have ready access to the minutes. Otis added that feature a while back - something I keep forgetting about, so that anyone can easily find minutes for any meeting. Most committee secretaries are not doing that, and may not even know about that feature.

KPFT Notes to kpft.org

KPFT Program Director - 30 August, 2010 - 12:48

On Friday, the WordPress-hosted KPFT Notes will merge into KPFT’s website, kpft.org.

This move of many pieces of content (most of the more dated items will be retired) is aimed at bolstering content on the station’s website, and to draw listeners to kpft.org as a central source for KPFT-related items.

If you have suggestions for items to move, please make note in comments. If you have some spare time and can help with the cut and paste from site to site, let me know too.

- ernesto
