Jaime Gomez

Expertise:

 
  • BS Business Administration: Accounting
  • MA Education: Educational Counseling
  • Political Activist
  • Educator

Endorsements:

  • Committee to Strengthen KPFK
  • Statement:

    Jaime Gomez: Current Secretary for KPFK Local Station Board; BS-Business Administration; MA-Education.

    As a pacifist, and the son of an undocumented immigrant, I have over the years been involved in political activism. My purpose for seeking an elected position on KPFK's Local Station Board is to promote programming decisions as they relate to the Pacifica Foundation's Mission. A secondary purpose, also noted in Pacifica's Mission, is to support decisions related to the self-sustainability of the Pacifica Foundation and its radio stations.

    As Secretary for KPFK's Local Station Board this past year, I have been working with a group of professionals who have formed the candidate slate Committee to Strengthen KPFK. This group of professionals came together in an attempt to rescue our radio station from financial ruin. The evidence is clear that Pacifica staffing and programming decisions have been detrimental to the self-sustainability element of the Pacifica mission. It is hoped that our continued efforts in working with a slate of professionals will assist the Pacifica Foundation in overcoming the grave financial obstacles we are facing. Your continued support of our Candidate Slate is crucial, and your consideration of my candidacy is valued.
