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 [...]

Dear Editor – Scott Wyant

Dear Editor – Scott Wyant

Dear Editor, I grew up in Culver City, made placards for my late mother when she ran for City Council in 1964 (we could have had a first female council member before anyone else!), and I still love my hometown. That’s why I strongly urge a vote for Scott Wyant on April 12. I’ve also known Scott for more than 40 years. I respect him as someone who’s always worked hard, without a lot of [...]

Dear Editor – Sierra Club & LCV Endorse Candidates

Dear Editor – Sierra Club & LCV Endorse Candidates

I am very impressed that the Sierra Club has endorsed Councilwoman Meghan Sahli-Wells, Thomas Small and Daniel Lee for City Council. From what I understand, the Sierra Club used a very thorough process and determined that these candidates are by far the best in terms of their environmental records and their understanding of the steps our city could and should take to meet our residents', workers' [...]

Dear Editor – The Essence of Eriksson’s Excellence

Dear Editor – The Essence of Eriksson’s Excellence

While the decision to run for City Council is an individual one, Goran Eriksson made it very thoughtfully. It’s obvious, when looking at his long, every growing list of supporters, that he has been encouraged in this pursuit by residents across the city, representing many varied interests and political perspectives. Why Eriksson? What is that special attribute that he will bring to the dais [...]
