Dear Editor – Adding More Red Light Cameras

Dear Editor – Adding More Red Light Cameras

Dear Editor, At meeting of the 12th the Culver City city council will consider a police recommendation to install six red light cameras at three new intersections. Here, from the staff report (copy attached) is a table of the violations recorded at those intersections during a 12-hour site survey or "test hang" conducted in early October. The police are recommending two cameras at each [...]

Dear Editor – PTSA & Panther Partners Are Fundraising

Hi friends, I’m writing to you because you have kids at Culver City Middle School, or had them, or will have them… or because you’re supportive of the Culver City community generally. Have I ever told you how fabulous you are? So I’m asking: do you have five dollars to spare? Because even five dollars will make a difference. Panther Partners of CCMS (our booster club) and the [...]

Dear Editor – Display of Solidarity

Dear Editor – Display of Solidarity

Dear Editor, Friday morning I was grateful and encouraged to be part of a loving display of solidarity for Culver City's Muslim community at the King Fahad Mosque. As worshippers arrived for the 1 o'clock prayer service they were greeted by men and women from the surrounding neighborhoods holding signs of support and children and parents making sidewalk chalk drawings on the sidewalks [...]

Dear Editor – Community Health Council Responds to Election Results

Dear Friends and Colleagues, What happened to this nation last week deserved a moment of silence. We at CHC took the time to talk to each other about what this meant to us as individuals, to our families, to our communities, and to all the hard won victories that impact equity. In many ways, we will continue to move through a process that will take all types of responses and actions to [...]

Dear Editor – Mayor Clarke Asks for a Yes Vote

Dear Editor – Mayor Clarke Asks for a Yes Vote

The most important issues on the November 8th ballot may be the items at the end of the ballot pertaining to Culver City. So when marking your ballot, you may want to start at the bottom. Please vote YES on Measures CW, CA, CB and CD and feel free to share this with your friends and neighbors. Measure CW - a parcel tax to fund required mitigation measures resulting from stormwater/urban [...]

Dear Editor – Yes on Measure CA

Dear Editor – Yes on Measure CA

I am in support of a YES vote on Measure CA, and this is why. As I recall, back in 2006, when the Charter was being updated, there was a split in the City Council on this issue. At that time, Gary Silbiger, who was a council member at that time, was adamant that change of appointing authority and reporting responsibilities of the Fire Chief and Police Chief from the City Council to the City [...]

Dear Editor – An Open Letter to the Voters of Culver City

Dear Editor – An Open Letter to the Voters of Culver City

As former Mayors of Culver City, we urge Culver City voters to join us in supporting Measure CA on the November 8th ballot. In 2006, the voters approved changing our City Charter and our system of governance to a Council-Manager form of government, in which the Council hires, supervises and fires a professional full-time City Manager to run the affairs of the City. The City Manager, in turn, [...]

Dear Editor – An Open Letter to the School Board

Dear Editor – An Open Letter to the School Board

Perhaps it is only a rumor, and I hope that it is just that, a rumor, but it has come to the attention of the public that the Board may be considering violating one of its own bylaws in the upcoming election of its board president for next year. As you know, the board is bound by its own set of duly enacted and published bylaws. Under Board Organization, Board Bylaw BB 9100 (a) is very [...]

Dear Editor – No on Measure CW

Dear Editor – No on Measure CW

Dear Editor: Measure CW is a thinly-veiled property tax increase. Enough is enough. Do not be stampeded by fear. • NO WRITING SUPPORTS THE AMOUNT ALLEGEDLY NEEDED. Exactly how will our monies be used? Where are the documents by which Culver City projected the amount of funds allegedly needed? None has been provided—a definite red flag. Show us the numbers. Tell us the underlying [...]

Dear Editor – Police and Fire Departments Are Special

Dear Editor – Police and Fire Departments Are Special

Dear Editor, Like most California cities today, we face problems that require local solutions incorporating diverse perspectives. Nationwide, however, we see deepening distrust of civic institutions among some groups and declining participation in local government. Culver City Measure CA would exacerbate these trends locally without conferring any clear benefit. Measure CA sounds [...]
