WBAI LSB Meeting — April 10, 2013

The one hundred twenty ninth WBAI Local Station Board (LSB) meeting was held on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, at Alwan-for-the-arts, 16 Beaver Street, 4th floor, in downtown Manhattan. This is not an official Web page of the LSB.

I got to give a Treasurer's Report for the second meeting in a row. I had posted a written Treasurer's Report the night before because the LSB had passed a motion at the previous meeting saying that I had to post one before every meeting. And I got interrupted while I delivered the oral Treasurer's Report at this meeting. After I delivered it one faction operative was asking for numbers. Jeez, I'd just read the numbers, and she then said that she wished it were in writing. She obviously hadn't read the report as posted, and she hadn't been listening well enough to hear me read the report aloud a minute earlier. So I read the numbers again.

The big thing that happened was that the faction cheated in this meeting. They had made a motion and time was running out and one faction operative, who's been banned from the radio station for, among other things, multiple instances of assault and battery on people, moved to extend the agenda item till the last five people got to speak. Well, the non-faction members like to bend over backwards to accommodate others, so that motion to extend got passed. When the time came for the meeting to adjourn that faction operative claimed that she'd meant that the meeting would continue indefinitely. What a liar she is! Yeah, she lies a lot. The Chair rightly ruled that the meeting was over unless the LSB passed a motion to extend again. Well, to extend the time for the meeting requires a two thirds vote, and the faction didn't have enough people there to pass that, even though some non-faction members had left, thinking that the meeting was about to end in another couple of minutes. But the faction operative appealed the ruling of the Chair and overturning the ruling only takes a majority. And they did have a majority, with people having left. The faction then spent about another hour and a half passing everything they could think of. They call their little political party the “Justice & Unity Campaign,” but it's the most divisive and unjust bunch I've seen.
