Motion Re Elections Passed by Pacifica National Board Please note: In the Be It Resolved section of the motion, the first 3 were sent to the PNB Elections Committee and they are to report back to the full PNB with their recommendations 30 days after the motion passed (the motion passed on Thursday November 1). The last 3 were passed as is. Whereas the Pacifica National Board reaffirms its commitment to free and fair Local Station Board elections; Whereas the intent of the Pacifica National Board and the Pacifica Election Bylaws is to protect the right to equal access for all candidates; Whereas the right, process, procedures, cost or timeline to distribute a mailer to the entire membership of local signal areas has not been communicated to all candidates running for local station board elections; Whereas the spending of large sums of money in Pacifica campaigns runs counter to the noncommercial nature of the Pacifica Radio Network while underscoring the discriminatory nature of campaign financing so prevalent and objectionable in mainstream elections; Whereas the Pacifica National Board is deeply concerned about the resulting unequal access of individual candidates and/or slates that have the financial backing to pay for mailers to be sent to all local station members; Whereas allowing expensive mailers is discriminatory, in particular but not only to women and people of color who have the least resources as well as to those interested in running as independents; Whereas such mailers have been abused in at least one signal area and used as a fund-raiser for a private entity; Whereas there is a lack of protection of Pacifica of such abuse; including the abuse of employer and/or corporate money being used to cover the cost of such mailers that could lead Pacifica open to takeovers of Local Station Boards by those with financial backing; Be it resolved that the Pacifica National Board must do everything it can to get money out of its election process so that those most economically disadvantaged are not discouraged from participating in the process. Be it resolved that the Pacifica National Board form a Special Task Force including membership of the campaign reform sub committee of the PNB elections committee, to revise the election rules to assure that those most economically disadvantaged are not discouraged from participating in the process. Be it further resolved that the Pacifica National Board develops guidelines for the use of local station membership lists that are in accordance with State and Federal Law as well as the bylaws of Pacifica and that these guidelines must be in place 6 months prior to the next Local Station Board election; Be it further resolved that steps be taken immediately to remedy the unequal access that has occurred at KPFK and any other Pacifica station, including if needed the extension of the election period, and that these steps have minimal financial impact on KPFK or any other affected station. Be it further resolved that the Pacifica Elections Committee, the Pacifica Elections Supervisor with consultation with Pacifica’s legal counsel, the General Manager (or Interim General Manager), and the Pacifica Directors (a defacto remediation task force) from the impacted signal area develop a timely plan for remediation within one week of passage of this motion to be implemented immediately thereafter; Be it further resolved that the Pacifica Elections Supervisor will have the authority to rule on whether or not remediation measures proposed are acceptable and meet the concerns of the Pacifica Board as well as the legal obligations of Pacifica.

----- Resolution to Increase Annual Membership Fee (Terry Goodman) (Postponed from 5/24/07) Resolved, that the National Finance Committee recommends that the Pacifica National Board, pursuant to its authority under Article Three, Section 1(A) of the Foundation Bylaws, vote to adjust the minimum contribution for Listener-Sponsorship membership in the Foundation from $25 to $30 annually. ----- Resolution on Staffing Reductions (Goodman & Edwards-Tiekert) (Ruled for open session at 9/28/07 closed meeting) The NFC advises the National Board and national executives that it finds the Pacifica network's financial situation precarious, that the Pacifica National Office's budget is based on optimistic income assumptions in several local station budgets, that there is a significant probability the Pacifica National leadership will have to make significant expense reductions in multiple network divisions in the near future, and that they should plan accordingly. With due consideration of the financial and operational realities and governance challenges that have confronted the Foundation in recent years and are expected to continue, the PNB Finance Committee recommends PNB adoption of the following resolution. Whereas, the Pacifica Foundation is a non-profit corporation which depends for its survival and the fulfilment of its Mission primarily upon the donation of funds from Pacifica listeners and upon the voluntary contribution of labor from Pacifica's unpaid workers, And Whereas, the Pacifica Foundation's usable income has declined while its expenses have increased, seriously threatening its financial reserves, And Whereas, the employees at several Pacifica units have not been reduced in sufficient number to compensate for revenue shortfalls, Be It Resolved, that the Pacifica National Board gives specific authorization to its Executive Director to reduce the number of employees at any Pacifica unit and to effect such staffing reductions as he or she deems necessary for the financial health of the Foundation, pursuant to the normal authorities and responsibilities of a chief executive officer.

----- MOTION regarding composition of work group on staff membership: Resolved, THAT the Elections Committee work group authorized on May 20, 2007 be convened within one week; and THAT staff members already on the EC volunteer on June 17, 2007 to attend a meeting of this work group within one week of the original meeting; and THAT in the event that any station is not represented by EC staff members, a public call shall be put out for as many staff representatives from each station as necessary to bring the complement up to two, to be selected by the respective LSBs, for the purpose of meeting with the PNB EC work group on staff membership; and THAT a designated member of the EC notify each of the members and proposed members of this work group of the date and time of the teleconference described above. ----- MOTION regarding teleconference phone systems: Whereas the cost of using the Foundation's teleconferencing system is higher than the cost of using a commercial conference calling (Internet based) system, and Whereas distributing the foundation's EC teleconference numbers to people invited to work groups who are not members of the PNB Elections Committee may jeopardize the confidentiality of the Foundation's call-in codes, therefore be it RESOLVED THAT work groups convened by the Elections Committee shall use a commercial Internet-based conference calling system, to be selected by the convenor, with numbers distributed to all members and invitees, rather than the Foundation's system for teleconference calling and codes.
