Disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer, and our bylaws are imprecise.

A sucessful petition, as I read things, says that this board-unanimous
mission proposal cannot be adopted without a vote by the membership.
However the board is not forced to hold such a vote -- that is their

It is still possible to adopt a new mission without a membership vote.
The board could unanimously consent to a new proposal, and if that
proposal addressed enough concerns, petitioners would not materialize.
The upcoming "round table" discussions may be a place to
shape a new proposal.

In regards to the recent forum discussions of the controversial revised mission statement:

I'm glad to hear that Foskin is urging everyone to resist the tactics aptly suited to Ballard's 'soft totalitarianism'. I heartily agree. Denice Clark was nearly in tears at the March 4 meeting when one perpetually disgruntled member likened KRFC leadership to Fascism. There's no need for anything of the sort.

I'm comforted to see that Foskin has come a long way since June 8, 2005 when he wrote: "I will not be associated with (nor give freely my creative time and effort to) a group of individuals who are turning this radio station into a Stalinist camp where no one has the right to voice his or her opinions as to how this station is run and operated."
