Dear Editor – An Open Letter to the Voters of Culver City

Dear Editor – An Open Letter to the Voters of Culver City

As former Mayors of Culver City, we urge Culver City voters to join us in supporting Measure CA on the November 8th ballot. In 2006, the voters approved changing our City Charter and our system of governance to a Council-Manager form of government, in which the Council hires, supervises and fires a professional full-time City Manager to run the affairs of the City. The City Manager, in turn, [...]

Dear Editor – An Open Letter to the School Board

Dear Editor – An Open Letter to the School Board

Perhaps it is only a rumor, and I hope that it is just that, a rumor, but it has come to the attention of the public that the Board may be considering violating one of its own bylaws in the upcoming election of its board president for next year. As you know, the board is bound by its own set of duly enacted and published bylaws. Under Board Organization, Board Bylaw BB 9100 (a) is very [...]

Dear Editor – No on Measure CW

Dear Editor – No on Measure CW

Dear Editor: Measure CW is a thinly-veiled property tax increase. Enough is enough. Do not be stampeded by fear. • NO WRITING SUPPORTS THE AMOUNT ALLEGEDLY NEEDED. Exactly how will our monies be used? Where are the documents by which Culver City projected the amount of funds allegedly needed? None has been provided—a definite red flag. Show us the numbers. Tell us the underlying [...]

Dear Editor – Police and Fire Departments Are Special

Dear Editor – Police and Fire Departments Are Special

Dear Editor, Like most California cities today, we face problems that require local solutions incorporating diverse perspectives. Nationwide, however, we see deepening distrust of civic institutions among some groups and declining participation in local government. Culver City Measure CA would exacerbate these trends locally without conferring any clear benefit. Measure CA sounds [...]

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 We put working families first (Repealed the MFG), we stood up against wrongful civil seizures (SB 443), and we expanded how we protect victims [...]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

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 [...]
