Dear Editor – Peace Starts Here, with Art

Dear Editor – Peace Starts Here, with Art

‎About 4 years ago we launched The Peace Project and began working in Sierra Leone, Africa. About 7 months ago, I posted that I wanted to go to the Philippines -- now The Peace Project is on the ground preparing to build the first community of 40 houses and a community center. A total of 200 houses are planned. A few years ago, Mark Damon Espinoza told me he had a dream that he ran into me [...]

Dear Editor- Derek for Secretary of State

Dear Editor- Derek for Secretary of State

Here’s something to be excited about in the June 3 primary election — Derek Cressman is running for California Secretary of State. I worked with Derek for several years and know him well. He was the director of the democracy program at U.S. PIRG when I was working for the organization’s research unit. I can think of nobody better for the job. Rather than spending years raising [...]

Dear Editor: On June 3, 2014 we all have the opportunity to make a positive difference in Culver City by voting Yes on Measure CC, the school facilities bond measure that will be on the June 3rd ballot.

Dear Editor – Pastor Promotes Measure CC

Dear Editor – Pastor Promotes Measure CC

Hello, I am writing in support of Measure CC. I am the mother of two children in Culver City schools, Linwood E. Howe Elementary and Culver City Middle School. A quality education is one of the building blocks of not just a good society, but a great one. CCUSD has done a brilliant job of weathering the budget storms of the past decade; they have prioritized teacher salaries and quality programs [...]

Dear Editor – Good Schools Make Community

Dear Editor – Good Schools Make Community

Dear Editor: I don't have a child in Culver City schools anymore. My daughter is an adult now. She's married with a good job. She and her husband hope to have a child of their own someday soon. When they do, they're planning on moving back to Culver City. Why? Because of our schools. But you know what? Even if I didn't have my own family in mind, I'd vote for Measure CC. My daughter is just [...]

Dear Editor – Last Forum Showed Community Support for Bond Measure

Last night (May 20) the Culver Crest Neighborhood Association hosted an excellent discussion on Measure CC, the bond to repair and upgrade Culver City schools. The presenters were CCUSD Superintendent Dave LaRose, Assistant Superintendent Mike Reynolds and School Board Member Sue Robins. Once again, they made a great case as to why we should vote yes on June 3. They explained the enormous [...]

Dear Editor – Walking the Talk

Dear Editor; When we moved to Culver City 20 years ago we did not have kids, but we chose Culver City in part because of the school system. Please vote YES on Measure CC, the CCUSD school bond measure on the June 3rd ballot. Over the last 10 years that our son has been a Culver City student we have spent a lot of time at the school sites. The conditions of our classrooms, science labs, [...]

Dear Editor – School Bond Support

Dear Editor – School Bond Support

While I usually vote against anything that increases my taxes, I'm voting FOR Measure CC. It's a NECESSARY bond measure to ensure our Culver City schools don't fall into disrepair. I've witnessed first hand dangerous electrical issues, asbestos issues, seismic problems, rain falling into classrooms, puddles that don't go away, rusty water coming out of drinking fountains, ceiling tiles falling [...]

Dear Editor – Measure CC

Dear Editor – Measure CC

To the Editor: Please join me and thousands of parents and vote Yes on Measure CC, the CCUSD school bond measure on the June 3rd ballot. The PTA is the largest child advocacy organization in the Nation. All seven of our Culver City PTAs have endorsed Measure CC because they fully understand that the conditions of our classrooms and schools are sub par compared to schools in districts like [...]
