Candidates shall appear for the LSB in January to state why they should be selected by this body to serve on this council. Each candidate will receive up to two minutes to advocate for themselves and one minute to answer a one-minute question from each LSB member prior to the vote.
B. Weisgal: Motion to encourage Congress to support a budget that addresses human needs (text to be
provided).
C. Motion from Robert Mark: The KPFT LSB shall create a committee to investigate and make recommendations for a sanction if warranted, regarding the conduct of LSB Chair Ted Weisgal wherein he: 1. Inappropriately directed non KPFT assignments to minor high school interns in violation of the terms and conditions wherein such interns were made available to KPFT; 2. Acted in an oppressive manner to KPFT staff and volunteer programmers to interfere with their duties; 3. Threatened to kill a longstanding KPFT programmer at a programmers meeting; 4. Participated in a public media crusade to hold KPFT and Pacifica in a negative light for the purposes of furthering his Pacifica political agenda, thus creating a negative public view of Pacifica; 5. Acting as LSB Chair outside the authority as set forth in the bylaws for the LSB or any delegated authority by the PNB to the LSB; 6. Acted outside the scope of his authority wherein following the creation of an executive committee of the LSB, he acted on a recommendation of said committee without returning the matter to the LSB for ratification as was specifically required under the motion passed creating said committee; All detrimental to the best interests of the Pacifica Foundation. After a full investigation of these allegations, the committee shall report to the full LSB their findings and conclusions and recommendations for sanction if any.

D. Motion by PK McCary regarding censorship:
Whereas, while censorship is not a new phenomenon for the Pacifica Network, having fought the good fight about indecent or profane language (and losing), and Whereas censorship tampers with the mission of being "listener-sponsored free speech radio," and Whereas KPFT's current gag order is censorship and the antithesis of "free speech radio," and, Whereas listeners are being kept in the dark, Therefore, Be it Resolved that the current gag order be lifted immediately as it goes against the mission and principles of KPFT.
E. Motions from K.C. Sinclair
1. I move to require LSB members who reference RONR, the Bylaws, Standing and Special Rules, or other sources to give members time and citations to find the information.
2. I move to suspend Robert Mark's participation and voting. Mr. Mark was found guilty. This will be a status report of the actions taken and to be taken in this matter.

Susie Moreno has withdrawn this motion (F) and will bring it back, revised, in January.
F. Motion by Susie Moreno regarding diversity in programming:
1. In 2000 and again in 2013, KPFT was given court orders to diversify its programming to better represent the diverse makeup of the City of Houston and listenership area.
Currently, programming disproportionately favors white audiences with 65% of the programs geared towards European-American listeners.
During Dr. Kamau’s tenure, a process was started to address the court orders and better represent the greater Houston community.
I move that the programming changes made by Interim General Manager Jerry Sumrall (aka Larry Winters), illegitimately hired on July 14, 2017, be stopped.
I further move that a diverse programming council, representative of the Houston area demographics, be created to continue the efforts to diversify KPFT initiated by Dr. Kamau in order to comply with its mission to provide diverse programming.
G. Motion by Bob Gartner: I move that bumper stickers and other KPFT paraphernalia be purchased. I also move that that we determine
1. How many bumper stickers we want and,
2. By what date they should be delivered to KPFT.
NOTE: As far as paraphernalia, should this motion pass, it will be the job of the IGM and staff to determine what we need for the next fund drive, but the amount spent should not exceed the amount in the 2017 budget.
H. Motion by Bob Gartner: I move that the volunteer sign-up sheets be placed in the hands of the KPFT LSB chair and that copies be made available for distribution to any board member who has a use for them in the carrying out of their duties as a committee member.
I. Motions from Rhonda Garner
1. The removal of Ted Weisgal as the chair of the committe and replace him with our vice-chair Elayne Duncan. Should be on the agenda prior to Robert Mark's trial.
2. Discussion about the KPFT LSB doing a fund-raiser for the station.

J. Motions from K.C. Sinclair
1. To rescind the LSB’s previous action of electing Deb Shafto Secretary of the KPFT LSB and, to replace her effective immediately.
2. To move this item up on the agenda and to place it immediately after IV. Agenda Approval.

XIV. Adjournment
