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 [...]

Dear Editor – Council Member Clarke’s Ballot Selection

Dear Editor – Council Member Clarke’s Ballot Selection

Many residents have asked my opinion about various candidates running for Culver City Council so I thought it best to send out this email listing my choices. First, we have a great field of candidates from which to choose and at this point with one week to go, I have no idea which candidates will be elected. But since I have two years left on the City Council, along with Jeff Cooper, I am [...]

Dear Editor – Listening Skills

Dear Editor – Listening Skills

Will Scott Wyant make a good City Councilman? Yes he will…you can believe it! I have known City Council candidate Scott Wyant and his wife Leslie for over 30 years. We met as work mates, but quickly became best mates. Our close friendship has continued over the years, especially after my wife and I moved to Culver City in 2009. I’d like to relay a story that will tell you a little about [...]

Dear Editor – BizFedPAC Mailer

Dear Editor – BizFedPAC Mailer

Did you too get a large, glossy mailer from BizFedPAC? The term BizFedPAC alarmed me. PACs promote their own special interests. I googled BizFed and up popped their mission: BizFed - Strengthening the Voice of Business bizfed.org/ Does Culver City need an outside group to strengthen its already dominant voice of business? With upcoming issues of building heights and density, with traffic [...]

Dear Editor – Wyant’s Environmental Concerns

Dear Editor – Wyant’s Environmental Concerns

Dear Editor, I was especially interested in the fact that Scott Wyant took the initiative to look into the potential Porter Ranch-like natural gas hazard in our own backyard, Playa del Rey. Whether or not it turns out to be anything, it was something he noticed, requested reports on, and brought to our attention. I prefer our leaders be proactive rather than reactive, when it’s often too [...]

Dear Editor – Meeting Culver City’s Current and Unique Needs

Dear Editor – Meeting Culver City’s Current and Unique Needs

On April 12th, with complete confidence and high hopes, I will be casting one of my three Culver City City Council votes for Thomas Small. My confidence stems from my long-standing and deep friendship with his family. My high hopes arise from my distinct impression that he is an expert in disciplines that matter immensely to our fair city at this important juncture. Thomas, the only [...]

Dear Editor – Get Out the Vote

Dear Editor – Get Out the Vote

On March 14, 2016, the Culver City City Council granted (5-0) Lowe’s Enterprise request to develop and construct a mixed-use urban project adjacent to the Culver City Metro Expo Line on the site of the 586 parking spaces now occupying that location. Five acres of city-owned property will become residential, office, retail and hotel properties, plus 300 parking stalls for the Metro Line. That [...]

Dear Editor – In Enthusiastic Support of Meghan

Dear Editor – In Enthusiastic Support of Meghan

From my perspective, Meghan Sahli-Wells has been an outstanding city council member and should be re-elected on April 12! A good leader, listener, and learner, Meghan is well-positioned to help Culver City evolve into an even better community for everyone. And I resonate with her both her accomplishments and specific goals in four key areas: A Healthy & Safe Community, Excellent City [...]

Dear Editor – Wyant Walks the Talk @ Workplan Meetings

Dear Editor – Wyant Walks the Talk @ Workplan Meetings

I’m sorry if you missed week’s Culver City Budget Workplan meetings. Why did I attend all 10 hours? Because I want to continue to be the only new candidate who’s ready to hit the ground running — and because the presentations were fascinating. I got to hear, again, about all the cool things our City staff and departments are already doing for us. A project to clean up storm water in [...]
