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 [...]

Dear Editor – Social Media Secret Society

Dear Editor – Social Media Secret Society

It has come to my attention that there is a closed-secret-society Facebook Bulletin Board facilitated by Dan O’Brien, an outspoken Grace Church member and supporter. Some Secret Society members are full of vitriolic-incendiary and sometimes defamatory rhetoric directed toward Farragut Drive residents. Some incite others to damage the residents’ property, without considering their personal [...]

Dear Editor – Eriksson for Environment

Dear Editor – Eriksson for Environment

We have known Goran for several years and we have found that he has three important skills to be an effective member on our City Council. Goran has strong people skills, financial skills and environmental skills. Almost two years ago, he was appointed by a vote of all sitting Council members to the Finance Budget Advisory Committee. There, as the Chairperson, he has advocated for increased [...]

Dear Editor – Enthusiasm for Eriksson

Dear Editor – Enthusiasm for Eriksson

I am supporting Göran Eriksson for City Council. While I appreciate his positions on issues that are important to Culver City, such as environmental issues, business attraction and retention, public safety and all the other aspects that make Culver City such a great city to live in, I am supporting him for more basic, personal reasons. I admire his diligence, his work ethic, his intelligence and [...]

Dear Editor – Tiggs Fan Waxes Poetic

Dear Editor – Tiggs Fan Waxes Poetic

Dear Editor: I first met Marcus Tiggs at the Forum in Tellefson Park giving all the candidates for City Council a chance to air their views. I was impressed by his intelligence, his record of service to Culver City, his outstanding military record and his balanced viewpoint. I believe that Marcus Tiggs should be one of our new City Council members. Here are more reasons why: His financial [...]

Dear Editor – Small Gets Large Support for Council

Dear Editor – Small Gets Large Support for Council

As a Culver City resident long active in the environmental, cultural and other arenas, I enthusiastically endorse Thomas Aujero Small for City Council. To focus on the environment, I am particularly impressed with his strong experience, skills, interests and endorsements. Ironically Culver City's success in becoming an increasingly diverse, creative, and attractive community has brought with [...]

Dear Editor – Voting by Mail? Check Wyant

If you are a Permanent Absentee Voter you have already received your ballot this week for the April 12, 2016 Culver City municipal election. Whether you are voting by mail or you are voting on Election Day, I urge you to join with me, and my fellow Council members Jeff Cooper, and Jim Clarke, in voting for Scott Wyant. Scott has been a friend and ally of mine for many years. I know his [...]

Dear Editor – Red Light Tickets and Rolling Right Stops

Dear Editor  – Red Light Tickets and Rolling Right Stops

For California Motorists Concerned about Red Light Camera Tickets: This is my first Legislative Alert since June 2015. I hope you will read this and contact your State representatives in Sacramento today or Monday. This is the time of year when new legislation is introduced in Sacramento - and there is a brand new bill that needs your support. It is SB 681, and if passed it will reduce [...]
