For California Motorists Concerned about Red Light Camera Tickets: This is my first Legislative Alert since June 2015. I hope you will read this and contact your State representatives in Sacramento today or Monday. This is the time of year when new legislation is introduced in Sacramento - and there is a brand new bill that needs your support. It is SB 681, and if passed it will reduce [...]

Dear Editor – City at Risk from Fracking

Dear Editor, The Baldwin Hills/Inglewood Oil Field operators have been pressuring City officials to put 100 new wells in Culver City. Some of these may be injection/disposal wells (aka the ones that trigger earthquakes). The City is working on an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to assess risks associated with giving the operators permits to set up operations within our City. If you are [...]

Dear Editor – Enthusiasm for Kent

Dear Editor: I’m writing to share my enthusiastic support for Kelly Kent for Culver City School Board. We are fortunate to have a candidate that has showed the love and commitment to the education of Lin Howe students and our community. I am both a parent and a Spanish teacher at Lin Howe; I’m part of the Spanish enrichment program that Kelly co-founded with Joanna Brody and other [...]

Dear Editor – Investing Our Bond Money

Dear Editor – Investing Our Bond Money

Our schools are in a serious state of disrepair, causing safety & health problems for students and staff. Our community responded by passing a $106 million school facilities bond last year. This is a large investment by every homeowner & business in Culver City. Nothing impacts your property values more than the quality of our schools. We have one chance to spend this bond money wisely.

Dear Editor – Learning and Earning

Dear Editor – Learning and Earning

Dear Editor: I have always said that anyone that runs for office should be commended. However, some people simply need to be better informed and involved before they do so. Kelly Kent is in that category. In Culver City, you have to earn things. Culver City School Board Candidate Kelly Kent has not earned a place as an elected official. Kelly is attempting to gain office through [...]

Dear Editor, I had plans to write a letter today, in support of Anne Burke and Scott McVarish for school board. I’m writing a different letter instead. Make no mistake, I definitely still support Scott and Anne. However, I was so impressed by their recent Facebook post that I feel compelled to comment. As is usual these days, the candidates are using social media to campaign, and every so [...]

Dear Editor – Voting for Kent

Dear Editor – Voting for Kent

Dear Editor, My absentee ballot was mailed today with a vote for Dr. Kelly Kent. It is rare that we have someone with her qualifications on our school board. An educator, Dr. Kent understands the learning process and will put in the time and energy to provide our students with what they need to excel both as students and as citizens. Based on her research and classroom expertise, she knows how [...]

Dear Editor – ¿Quién es Kelly Kent ?

Dear Editor – ¿Quién es Kelly Kent ?

Dear Editor, Throughout this school board campaign, one of the primary questions about Kelly Kent is “Who is she?” and “What is her experience working with our Culver City schools?" These are questions I am uniquely positioned to answer, and I believe that my perspective may be of benefit to the electorate, who are being asked to select candidates in our upcoming local election. For [...]

Dear Editor – Proven Experience and Fresh Ideas

Dear Editor – Proven Experience and Fresh Ideas

I moved to Culver City five years ago specifically so that my children could attend its phenomenal grade schools. As my daughter prepares to graduate from El Marino, I am looking at the middle school and high schools with the hope and expectation that she and her brother will continue receiving an extraordinary public education. Though both schools have shown marked improvement in recent years, [...]
