Dear Editor – Council Member Small Address EIR Vote

Dear Editor – Council Member Small Address EIR Vote

Dear Editor, Last Monday night’s City Council discussion and vote on the future of the oil field was impassioned and challenging. Anyone who listened knows that my critique and questions, for the new oilfield operator Sentinel Peak, were incisive and exacting. The company’s presentation to Council and the public was not encouraging. Their responses to our questions were inadequate. There [...]

Dear Editor –  Clarke and Eriksson Defend Their Votes

Dear Editor, In the face of a passionate group of residents who demanded that the city not even meet with the new owners of the Culver City oil fields, Monday’s City Council vote to talk with Sentinel Peak Resources (SPR) was a difficult one, but we believe it was both prudent and responsible for the future of our city. Because the city’s Environmental Impact Report and Specific Plan [...]

Dear Editor – Mayor Clarke on Immigration Policy

Dear Editor – Mayor Clarke on Immigration Policy

Dear Editor - “Culver City is a 'City of Kindness,' and our City Council has affirmed this with the adoption of our Sanctuary City Resolution. Media outlets recently reported about a section in the Police Department manual that addresses immigration enforcement and appears inconsistent with our Council direction. I am pleased that Police Chief Bixby swiftly gave this matter his full [...]

Dear Editor – Support for Sanctuary

Dear Editor – Support for Sanctuary

Dear Editor, I am writing to ask you to support the motion to make Culver City a formal sanctuary city. It would be easy to say that we need to study this more, or that we need to be cautious, or that it won't make a difference. Those may all be true. But to me all the arguments come down this: We need to do the right thing for our neighbors. We as a city need to do the right thing for the [...]

Dear Editor – CCPD Addresses Community Concerns with Immigration Policy

Dear Editor – CCPD Addresses Community Concerns with Immigration Policy

Recently, we have received inquiries and comments from some of our community members expressing fears about the election results and its impact on our community, specifically as it relates to immigration enforcement and deportation. It is my intent with this message to ease the concerns of all of our community, but specifically the fears of the parents, children, and relatives of undocumented [...]

Dear Editor – Neighbors Seeking Regulation Re: STR

Dear Editor – Neighbors Seeking Regulation Re: STR

In the unfortunately ongoing saga, short term rental property is still creating problems. Despite my greatest hopes, the traffic has not stopped.  The house continues to be a taxi service station of people coming and going, the level of hostility now keeps us on edge who is staying, who is not and knowing the tenant changed her profile picture has re-listed the house on AirBNB. We are simply [...]

Dear Editor – Sanctuary Now

Dear Editor – Sanctuary Now

On March 15, 2017, the Culver City Police Department (CCPD) held a community forum to discuss its practices regarding immigration law enforcement. In light of today’s political climate, we call on the Culver City Council to affirm and protect CCPD's approach. CCPD does not currently enforce immigration law. Immigration law is separate from criminal law, and its enforcement is the federal [...]

Dear Editor – Challenging Racism Within and Without

Dear Editor – Challenging Racism Within and Without

My mornings have become a routine that I can’t wait to change. I wake up; I read the headlines; the news is threatening and I put on my armor. It’s heavy because its fibers are intertwined with my history as an immigrant, political exile, woman of color, lesbian, and activist in this country; my armor is also solid because its frame is made up by a history of resistance from people of the [...]

Dear Editor – Karen Bass on Republican Health Bill

Dear Editor – Karen Bass on Republican Health Bill

To the 37th District: Last night, House Republicans introduced their plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Today, my offices in DC and LA have been flooded with hundreds of concerned calls about the effect that the new plan will have. Due to backlash today from both sides of the aisle, I want you to know that this bill is not a done deal and it still has a long way to go before it is [...]

Dear Editor – STR Creates Neighborhood Stress, City Not Responsive

Dear Editor – STR Creates Neighborhood Stress, City Not Responsive

Dear Editor, My wife and I have made dozens of complaints to Marien Aspnes, Code Enforcement Services Manager, over the last 8 months regarding our neighbor, a tenant who is AirBNB'ing two additional rooms as short term rentals. Despite the fact that this alone is illegal in Culver City, more has been asked of our complaints rather than the legality and our continuous efforts have been held in [...]
