Resolution on Restoring Local Control

Whereas the LSB was elected by the listeners and staff of KPFA to represent their interests and values, and whereas a cardinal principle of the Pacifica stations since their founding has been local control of programming so long as that programming has been consistent with Pacifica’s principles and mission; and

Whereas the recent conduct of the Pacifica Executive Director has flagrantly violated that long-standing and salutary principle of governance in controlling personnel and programming without even seeking input from the local management or the local LSB; therefore

Be It Resolved that the KPFA LSB calls on the Foundation Board to immediately restore local control over personnel and programming to KPFA.

Passed by KPFA’s local station board on December 4, 2010.
