    Long Statement

    My name is Leslie Fox and I am a newly elected member of the KPFK Local Station Board. I am running again for next year and I know this seems very soon after our most recent election; however if we complete this election there will not be another one for two years.

    I bring to KPFK a twenty-five year career as a professional fundraiser for universities and national environmental organizations. We must begin the long road to sustainability through improved, intelligent, proven methods of fundraising even as we work through the current crisis. The Pacifica Network has a long history of individual listener support without any corporate influence or contributions, and KPFK and our sister stations have stayed true to the mission of offering a forum on issues of social, economic and environmental justice. You can see our newly elected board on candidateslate.com and additional candidates will be added to our slate soon. 

    We need to be more listener responsive to save Pacifica. That means asking your opinions, thanking you often, and covering the issues you want to hear about. Thank you for being a valuable member of KPFK and please vote for me and my colleagues to save KPFK
