Dear Editor – Private Life or Public Service?

Dear Editor – Private Life or Public Service?

Dear Editor: I have had the privilege of participating in Culver City elections for the last 45 years as a candidate and supporter of candidates. Culver City residents have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to support qualified men and women who have been willing to make personal and business sacrifices in order to serve our City. Until now, I cannot remember an election in which a [...]

Dear Editor – New Neighbor is Big Fan

Dear Editor – New Neighbor is Big Fan

Dear Editor, I am writing today in support of Meghan Sahli-Wells for Culver City City Council. I am a newcomer to Culver City. I moved here only in July, but it was love at first sight. I live in a great neighborhood—near downtown, within a few minutes walk from shopping, theatres, cinema, restaurants, and the Tuesday Farmers Market. I can bike a block to the Ballona Creek bike path, or [...]

Dear Editor – Collaborator Extraordinaire

Dear Editor – Collaborator Extraordinaire

I've worked closely with Meghan Sahli-Wells on Transition Culver City's steering committee for a few years. I know her as an amazingly astute, kind and upbeat person as well as a creative problem solver — and a true master of collaboration. Many times when we have met to brainstorm future events & outreach for our group, I have been amazed by how Meghan can come up with an original idea and [...]

Dear Editor – Interesting Times

Dear Editor – Interesting Times

Whether we like it or not, we are living in “interesting times.” The economy is limping toward a recovery, but cities are still feeling a serious financial crunch. On a state and national level, politicians seem intent on being as divisive as possible and presenting choices in stark black and white. We are fortunate in Culver City. Yes, we are facing tough budget choices and difficult fiscal [...]

Dear Editor- Ability and Action by Andy Weissman

Dear Editor- Ability and Action by Andy Weissman

I first met Andy Weissman when we worked together on the Measure V (City Charter) campaign. I was impressed with his intelligence and grasp of issues but, more importantly, I was taken with his ability to work well with disparate personalities and bring them to consensus. As we’ve seen in both Washington and Sacramento, good ideas are worthless if they can’t be put into action and Andy knows [...]

Dear Editor- Stop the Hate

Dear Editor- Stop the Hate

Dear Editor: I grew up in Culver City and moved to the South Bay when I was 22 years old. I recently married and my husband and I are planning on moving back to Culver City in the near future to raise our children. I have been observing local politics since I was a child (I was taken to a lot of meetings!) and have watched the de-evolution of civility, especially in writings. People [...]

Dear Editor – Reality Check

Dear Editor – Reality Check

Dear Editor, Reality check time. At last night's School Board meeting the District's Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Ali Delawalla, clearly spelled out the dire economic future facing our school district. The State is running out of money and they are spending less and less of it on education. The picture ain't pretty folks, in fact it is downright scary. Time and time again Ali referred to the [...]

Dear Editor- Culver Park

Dear Editor- Culver Park

The expansion of El Marino Elementary School to accommodate a full-day kindergarten requires the relocation of CCUSD’s other high school, Culver Park. CPHS is the district’s continuation school and provides a program, now limited by budget cuts to 80 students, where high-schoolers, 16 to18 years old, have a supportive, productive place to make up lost time; time lost for as many reasons as [...]

Dear Editor- Calling on Council Candidates

Dear Editor- Calling on Council Candidates

Dear Editor - A number of City Councilmembers and City Council candidates have signed the petition and/or have clearly stated their support for parent-funded services within our schools. Indeed, Mayor Mehaul O'Leary, Councilmembers Jeff Cooper and Andrew Weissman, as well as city council candidate Scott Malsin are all in support. They joined 1,150 (as of 3/9/12) other petition signers who [...]

Dear Editor- Let’s Not Lose Sight of the Best Interests of the Children

Dear Editor- Let’s Not Lose Sight of the Best Interests of the Children

Dear Editor, David Mielke’s opinion piece reminds us that it is the union’s job to advocate for its members. That’s a good thing and he should continue.   However, it is our job as parents to advocate for our children.  And that’s a good thing too.  Hopefully, the School Board too will keep its focus on what is best for our children throughout this process. So, I would like to [...]
