We will share practical, easy ways to get involved all the way to what [...]

Dear Editor – Social Media Slur as Public Provocation

Dear Editor – Social Media Slur as Public Provocation

I ask all people of good conscience to join me in demanding that Karlo Silbiger publicly apologize to my good friend Jeannine Wisnosky Stehlin for the disturbing and hurtful remarks he addressed to her in a public forum, remarks which have caused her severe emotional anguish. Referring to Ms. Wisnosky Stehlin, Mr. Silbiger stated: "I'm sure that there were people like you in Topeka, Kansas [...]

Dear Editor – Wyant Understands the Issues

Dear Editor – Wyant Understands the Issues

Last month I attended the Candidate Forum at City Hall where all 7 candidates running for Culver City Council had the opportunity to speak about various issues. Although all of the candidates seemed like very nice people, when it came to answering the questions posed, candidate SCOTT WYANT stood head and shoulders above the rest. I was impressed by MR. WYANT’S knowledge of all of the issues [...]

Dear Editor – Former Board Colleague Supports Scott

Dear Editor – Former Board Colleague Supports Scott

Dear Editor, I am proud to support Scott Wyant for City Council. I worked with Scott when we were both on the board of the Culver City Education Foundation. His daughter had already graduated from Culver City High School, but that didn’t lessen Scott’s commitment to our schools and our community. I was impressed by Scott’s tech savvy, his understanding of our community from multiple [...]

Dear Editor – Praise for Eriksson

Dear Editor – Praise for Eriksson

Please consider casting your ballot for the upcoming Culver City Council election for Göran Eriksson. As I have worked with Göran on issues involving our schools over the past four years, I have come to admire his ability to combine vision with sense. He was one of the first supporters of the school facilities school bond Measure CC because he knew that improving our schools was not only the [...]

Dear Editor – Most Sincerely

Dear Editor – Most Sincerely

I have known my husband, Scott Wyant, for more than 40 years. When we started our family, we lived in a small apartment in Santa Monica and Scott began looking for our first home. Culver City was the place he found – an amazing oasis in the midst of Los Angeles with good schools. I know something about schools as I have taught in private and public elementary schools and am an executive for a [...]

Dear Editor – Meghan’s Critical Balance

Dear Editor – Meghan’s Critical Balance

To the Editor: We have lived in the Carlson Park neighborhood of Culver City for nearly twenty years. During that time the city has changed enormously, from a quiet backwater to a busy destination and job center. While many changes have been beneficial - increased home values, restaurants, job opportunities – there has been a downside as well. This includes increased traffic, mansionization , [...]

Dear Editor – Firefighters for Eriksson

Dear Editor – Firefighters for Eriksson

The Culver City Firefighters Association is pleased to endorse Göran Eriksson for Culver City Council. After interviewing City Council candidates, it is clear that our Association stands with Mr. Eriksson and his pledge to continue providing our city’s first-responders with the resources we need to be successful. We don’t walk the city in support of just any candidate, but Mr. Eriksson is [...]

Dear Editor – Lee’s Representation on Affordable Housing

Dear Editor – Lee’s Representation on Affordable Housing

A famous English painter once said about perspective “What you see depends not only on what you look at, but also on where you look from”. I believe that the quality of the decisions a City Council makes is in direct proportion to the breadth of the perspectives of its members. For many years now, the perspectives that have been brought to the table are rather homogeneous. When it comes time [...]

Dear Editor – “Uncalled For and Ugly”

Dear Editor – “Uncalled For and Ugly”

Dear Editor: Paulette Greenberg recently exposed the anti-Farragut ravings on Dan O’Brien’s closed-Facebook page. In response, Dan O’Brien published a reply stating, in part, “I am a member of Grace Lutheran Church.” Council Member Cooper’s recent posts on Dan O’Brien’s Farragut-bashing-closed-Facebook page are revealing and scary. Cooper recently published, “The slanderous [...]
