Resolution Concerning Elections
Passed September 12, 2013
  • Whereas, The Pacifica Foundation Radio By-Laws, in Article 4, Section 3, specifies that "Elections of Delegates shall be staggered over a 3-year period" (notice the strength of the word "shall"); and by a less stringent direction, "with elections for 3 Staff Delegates and 9 Listener-Sponsor Delegates held in the first year, elections for 3 Staff Delegates and 9 Listener-Sponsor Delegates held in the second year and no elections in the third year." And,

  • Whereas, it is the intent of the Pacifica Foundation Radio Board to follow these By-Laws as closely as physically and financially possible. And,

  • Whereas, the Foundation has had demonstrably business altering circumstances, beyond its control; for example Hurricane Sandy, in New York City, and with the station in Washington D.C. losing its lease because its old station location is being demolished to make way for a hotel on the site. And,

  • Whereas, due to these unavoidable circumstances, the Foundations funds level is not sufficient this year to fund a Delegates Election. And,

  • Whereas, this Board fully endorses democratic elections of Delegates (both listener and staff), and fully wishes to maintain the strongly worded, "Elections of Delegates shall be staggered over a 3-year period."
Therefore, this Board hereby authorizes maintaining the required two (2) Elections in a three (3) year period, but that the sequence of our Elections for this three (3) year period (2012-2014); shall be the first and third year, rather than the first and second year.
