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 [...]

Dear Editor – Arts, Jobs and the Republicans

Dear Editor – Arts, Jobs and the Republicans

According to The New York Times, “the White House budget office has drafted a hit list of programs that President Trump could eliminate to trim domestic spending, including longstanding conservative targets like the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Legal Services Corporation, AmeriCorps and the National Endowments for the Arts and the Humanities.” Because this is not an official [...]

Dear Editor – Safety is Not Political

Dear Editor – Safety is Not Political

Our diversity is our strength. With one of the most diverse public school systems in the nation, Culver City Unified believes that it's the differences between our students that help shape their learning and their character, and propel them to unparalleled heights in college and careers. To this end, our district aims to protect this diversity and is providing resources to students and [...]

Dear Editor – Senator Mitchell Deplores Traumatic Deportation Raids

Dear Editor – Senator Mitchell Deplores Traumatic Deportation Raids

I am sickened by the recent ICE raids. It is unacceptable for families to be torn apart in this fear generating manner. Inducing trauma is not good for any individual and on a larger scale makes society ill. This is not the America of the Civil Rights Movement which taught us that everyone has a place at the table and in America. These morally corrupt actions fall, unfortunately, under the [...]

Dear Editor – Sacramento Looks to Photo Radar and Gas Tax Revenue

Dear Editor – Sacramento Looks to Photo Radar and Gas Tax Revenue

Earlier this week a group of our legislators in Sacramento filed Assembly Bill 342, to allow the use of speed cameras (photo radar) in California. In December, another group of our legislators in Sacramento filed Senate Bill 1, which will raise gas taxes and registration fees. The two bills - if they pass - will cost you hundreds of dollars every year for the rest of your life. SB-1 is [...]

Heal the Bay Asks “Don’t Let D.C. Trash the E.P.A.”

Heal the Bay Asks “Don’t Let D.C. Trash the E.P.A.”

Heal the Bay isn't just looking our for Santa Monica Bay - they are looking out for environmental standards across the country. Yesterday, Feb, 1, 2017,  members of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works boycotted the vote to confirm Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s nomination to lead the EPA. A vote will be rescheduled in the coming days. From the offices of [...]

Dear Editor – Feeding the Homeless

Dear Editor – Feeding the Homeless

Having helped last week at registration for the Homeless Count and then attending the Community Workshop last Saturday on Homeless and Affordable Housing; I found myself wanting to do something that would make a difference even if it was a small difference - NOW! I also wanted to give community members an opportunity to do something that can help others as well as make them feel good. These times [...]
