Since balloting was extended in the KPFK local station board election until
December 26, the local election supervisor, Soul Watson, has arranged to collect
ballots in person at KPFK, 3729 Cahuenga Blvd. West in North Hollywood/Studio
City (just south of Lankershim next to the 101; two blocks from the Metro Red
Line Universal Studios station).
He will be there on Sunday, December 23 from 12:00 noon until 6:00 PM, and will
bundle up the ballots and send them by USPS Express Mail overnight to NY for the
tallying. It is preferable to bring your ballot sealed inside the original
business reply envelope that was included with it when you received it, but any
sealable envelope will do. Also, if you can serve as an observer to make sure
all ballots are recorded and included, that would be positive.
According to the National Election Supervisor, the ballots will be considered
received by the deadline at the point that the LES gets them, so even if by some
chance they do not get to NY in a timely manner, they will be considered towards
achieving quorum and will be counted when they are received at the ESC post
office box in Long Island, NY.
We are hopeful that quorum can be achieved by Dec. 26, the second extension, and
then new members can be seated at the KPFK Local Station Board meeting on
Saturday, Dec. 29 at 1 PM at the Culver City Peace Center, 3916 S. Sepulveda
Blvd. The public is welcome at the LSB meeting and there will be times for
public comment, both at the delegates' assembly considering several amendments
to the Pacifica bylaws, and at the regular LSB meeting, voting on officers for
the coming year.--Michael Novick
