You can help make Pacifica follow its own bylaws by speaking up now. The bylaws require the participation of the Local Station Board in any decision to fire a station general manager. The KPFA board has made its position clear. Now you can show Pacifica you support the local board and local control.
Dear Pacifica National Board:
The Pacifica bylaws require that the KPFA Local Station Board be involved in any decision to terminate a station manager. I stand with KPFA’s local board and support these two resolutions the board approved overwhelmingly at its April meeting:
“1) The KPFA Local Station Board opposes any move by Pacifica to remove or replace a KPFA manager without the meaningful participation of KPFA’s elected Local Station Board and consultation with KPFA’s paid and unpaid staff.
“2) Based on the information we have as of this date, the KPFA Local Station Board supports continuing the tenure of Andrew Phillips as interim general manager until the process of hiring a permanent general manager is complete.”
I demand that you follow the bylaws and listen to my elected representatives!
