Dear Editor – Holly Mitchell Looks Back at 54 Bills Signed into Law

Dear Editor –  Holly Mitchell Looks Back at 54 Bills Signed into Law

October is always busy. As a legislator, I spend half of my time urging the Governor to sign my bills and half my time fighting to get good candidates elected. This year is certainly no exception. Once again, we passed some very meaningful legislation. We put working families first (Repealed the MFG), we stood up against wrongful civil seizures (SB 443), and we expanded how we protect victims [...]

Dear Editor – Mayor Takes On Culver City Ballot Measures

Dear Editor – Mayor Takes On Culver City Ballot Measures

On November 8th, the voters of Culver City will head to the polls and cast votes that will have a significant impact on daily life. In addition to the Presidential race and other State contests, there are 19 statewide ballot measures, two County measures and four City measures. These City measures are at the end of the ballot, so while this may be a time when voters feel overwhelmed and fatigued, [...]

Dear Editor – A Solution Looking for a Problem

Dear Editor – A Solution Looking for a Problem

At the end of a very long ballot this November, we have to vote on 4 local measures, one of which should give us much reason for concern: Measure CA. Measure CA asks that we amend our City Charter (our Constitution) to take the power to hire, suspend and fire the Police and Fire Chief away from the City Council and give this power to the City Manager, even though this system has been in place [...]

Dear Editor – Dem Club Urges ‘No’ Vote on Measure CA

Do you want to preserve democracy in Culver City? If so, please go to the end of a very long ballot on Tuesday, November 8th (or when you receive your vote-by-mail ballot). Join with the Culver City Democratic Club to VOTE NO on Measure CA. If Measure CA passes, it would take away the power to hire, supervise and fire the Police and Fire Chiefs from our elected City Council and give this power [...]

Dear Editor – Who Votes? Who Should Vote?

Dear Editor – Who Votes? Who Should Vote?

Dear Editor, In early September, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the great basketball player who has since become a political activist, author, columnist for Time Magazine, did an interview with NPR where he said that uninformed voters should not be encouraged to vote. He said such voters actually did a disservice to democracy if they made uninformed decisions about policy. His comments have been [...]

Dear Editor – To the Point

Dear Editor – To the Point

Re: "We won." Well, Les, if losing on your issue and slandering popular elected officials and hurting Grace Church makes you a winner, then zay gezunt! Michael Gotz

Dear Editor – Claiming Victory

Dear Editor –  Claiming Victory

Dear Editor: We won. We exposed the ineptitude, incompetence and lack of ethics of the Culver City City Council. We exposed that, in Culver City, influence peddling trumps reason and justice. Ken Smith, a prominent member of Grace Church, has given new meaning to the phrase, “Ask and You Shall Receive.” We exposed Smith’s business, social and political relationships with former City [...]

Dear Editor – Code of Ethics

Dear Editor – Code of Ethics

Dear Editor: At the September 12, 2016 City Council meeting, will the City Council express shock, like Captain Louis Renault in Casablanca when he discovered that there was gambling in the backroom? It could. After all, the City Council members are learning from us that: (1) in 1996, the City adopted a Code of Ethics; (2) a copy of the Code of Ethics is not posted on the City’s award-winning [...]

Dear Editor – Farragut Parking Study ‘Success’

Dear Editor – Farragut Parking Study ‘Success’

Dear Editor: The parking study has been completed for the streets surrounding Grace Lutheran Church, and is now available to the public. As you may know, I am a long time member of the Grace Lutheran Church, and a leading advocate for having this study done due to the overly restrictive permit parking that has existed on 10700 Block of Farragut Dr. for over 30 years... The study will be [...]

Dear Editor – Farragut Parking Study ‘Fail’

Dear Editor – Farragut Parking Study ‘Fail’

Dear Editor: The long-awaited “parking study” arrived with a thud. A Culver City 6th grader could readily see the flaws in the KOA Corporation’s Technical Memorandum. For example, KOA: (1) failed to disclose its management’s long-term personal relationship with a senior member of the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church (Church); (2) made no effort to determine whether the Farragut [...]
