Dear Editor – Cooper’s Unique Skills are Needed

Dear Editor – Cooper’s Unique Skills are Needed

We are supporting Jeff Cooper for City Council for many reasons. Over the many years that we have known him, he has demonstrated strong leadership skills, a willingness to go the extra mile, a great sense of caring, a good ear for listening and forward thinking. We have watched Jeff as he has honed his skills in each of the above areas. As Mayor of Culver City in the past year, he has taken his [...]

Dear Editor – Fracking Follow Up

Dear Editor – Fracking Follow Up

I would like to thank all my supporters who spoke at the last City Council meeting demanding the City move with a strong, defensible ban or moratorium. To keep the pressure on our City officials to follow up on your input, and to give those unable to attend the opportunity to voice their concerns, I am inviting every Culver City citizen to join me for an organizing meeting at 7PM on Friday, April [...]

Dear Editor – Campaign Poetry

Dear Editor – Campaign Poetry

This past year as mayor, Jeff Cooper led us through tough economic times and recently outlined plans to increase city revenues. He works with his colleagues in seeking to find ways that the City Council can protect our homes, improve our environment, work with our schools to decrease bullying and keep our community – our “hometown” - safe and secure. Jeff Cooper, our current mayor, Is [...]

Dear Editor – CPK Inspires Enthusiasm

Dear Editor – CPK Inspires Enthusiasm

As time marches on and our city moves forward alongside it, the modern times demand modern leaders. I truly believe that Christopher Patrick King is that modern leader. At 31-years-old, he is a candidate ready to provide a new, reinvigorated perspective on Culver City’s most pressing issues. King has immersed himself in Culver City’s communities, and has plans to enhance city-wide unity. [...]

Dear Editor – CPK for Leadership

Dear Editor – CPK for Leadership

Since the beginning of the campaign cycle, Christopher Patrick King, has been the only candidate who has supported a local ban on hydraulic fracturing, gravel packing and acidization used to extract oil and natural gas. Since the chemicals used in fracking are known carcinogens that have been shown to pollute air and our ground water, Chris wants to assure that we have clean air and water in our [...]

Dear Editor – Rent Control

Dear Editor – Rent Control

Affordable housing and rent stabilization are two entirely different issues and even if Culver City were to create more affordable housing at this juncture, which of course Culver City also desperately needs, it would still not negate the need for rent stabilization and tenant rights. Mayor Jeff Cooper has been trying to dance around the movement for Rent Stabilization and Tenant Rights [...]

Dear Editor – Culver Crest Emergency Preparedness

Dear Editor – Culver Crest Emergency Preparedness

For the past year members of our Culver Crest Neighborhood Association have worked on developing an Emergency Preparedness Program. Our commitment should a disaster strike is to “be prepared, not scared.” We are launching a Street by Street canvassing effort to inventory community resources and skills, so should an emergency arise, we can coordinate efforts to facilitate everyone's [...]

Dear Editor – The City and the Ice Rink

Dear Editor – The City and the Ice Rink

Numerous people have spoken passionately about the Culver City Ice Arena, and we want to thank everyone who has taken the time to email, write or speak to us. It’s clear that this issue is important to the community in Culver City and beyond. Most of the comments have expressed an ardent desire to keep ice-skating in Culver City. We share that desire. Our friends, our neighbors and our own [...]

Dear Editor – Walk With a Doc

Dear Editor – Walk With a Doc

Dear Editor, Walk With A Doc/Culver City took its inaugural “first steps” in the city this Saturday, January 18, at Veterans Park guided by physician Dr Pouya Shafipour, of Wellesley Medical in Santa Monica.  After warm-ups and stretches with Culver Palms YMCA Fitness Trainer, Brandon Webb, Dr. Shafipour spoke to a gathering of about 50 eager participants and led them on a brisk walk [...]

Dear Editor – Can Culver City Save the Ice Rink?

Dear Editor – Can Culver City Save the Ice Rink?

As I begin to write this letter, I am filled with emotions. I am so very sad. My children, a son, age 12 and my daughter, age 9 have discovered ice-skating and have been thriving in every way while taking lessons at The Culver City Ice Rink. To find a sport that both of my kids enjoy and can do together is quite significant and rare. I treasure our times at The Culver City Ice Rink. My children [...]
