Dear Editor – Stand Together Against Neighborhood Drilling

Dear Editor – Stand Together Against Neighborhood Drilling

Dear Editor, Perhaps you’ve heard of Stand Together Against Neighborhood Drilling – Los Angeles (STAND-LA). This group works to protect the community health and safety of Angelinos who live near oil and gas drilling sites. Proximity to oil and gas operations can compromise community health; STAND-LA seeks an ordinance to establish 2500 foot set backs separating oil and gas operations from [...]

Dear Editor – Our Dangerous Oil Field

Dear Editor – Our Dangerous Oil Field

Dear Editor, The last thing most of us want to think about is the dangers we are facing. And yet here in Culver City we are facing dangers, and we must think about them. Otherwise, how can we act to protect ourselves? We’ve heard of these dangers before. They’re just as real and just as extreme today as they were when we first considered them. In no particular order they are: The [...]

Dear Editor – Facts Were Sought, Answers Are Still Needed

Dear Editor – Facts Were Sought, Answers Are Still Needed

Dear Editor, I am writing in response to your editorial regarding “Alternative Facts” in which you noted the recent situation regarding “Dr. I’s” role as principal at Lin Howe. Firstly, I want to say that you are absolutely correct that we should not operate on rumor and that we should vet our sources carefully. This is valid and should be applauded. However, in your article, you [...]

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 –  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 [...]

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 [...]
