The governing board of North Country Public Radio is the Board of Trustees of St. Lawrence University.
Now that you’ve offered local musicians an opportunity to get their original compositions played at NCPR intervals, how about creating a local forum where north country people can go to share views and discuss matters of concern to the people in our area.
For example, Potsdam trustee Alexandra Jacobs Wilke’s recent excellent op-ed; “We can respect our police and pursue racial justice”, could be a starting point for a candid discussion seeking common ground and solutions to problems that must be faced for the good of ALL north country people both now and in the future. NCPR can lead the way forward in that much needed civil conversation by providing the forum and the facilitator to get us back to talking and listening to each other. Passing the buck to FaceBook for listener comments will never be a substitute for local people coming together to solve our own problems and to build a better future. NCPR has the talent and the trust to make this work. Will you do it?
Sincerely, Louis Curth
