Dear Editor – Voters Needed for Upcoming Election

Dear Editor – Voters Needed for Upcoming Election

As a resident of Culver City for over 45 years I have seen almost everything happen within this city. One truly outstanding event was the election of my husband, Richard Alexander to the City Council in 1974 against almost all odds. It was somewhat like David and Goliath and forty years later I am witnessing the same type of event --with what I hope, will be the same outcome. Christopher Armenta [...]

Dear Editor – Support Given and Withdrawn

Dear Editor – Support Given and Withdrawn

I’ve known Chris Armenta for over a decade. Having served with him for four years on the Culver City Council, I know his heart is in the right place. When asked if I would endorse his campaign for State Assembly, I did so without reservation. However, having seen a recent campaign mailer attacking his opponent, I am withdrawing my support. I have always set a high standard for my own [...]

Dear Editor – Next Election Approaching Quickly

Dear Editor – Next Election Approaching Quickly

 Does money in politics & fracking in our Baldwin Hills concern you? On Tuesday December 3rd there is a special election. This is our opportunity to elect as our State Assembly member, a Culver City favorite voted most popular elected official in 2008 because of his total dedication to the community. He will speak out and work on our behalf in Sacramento. Former Culver City Mayor Chris [...]

Dear Editor – Nota Sheep (Quite A Statement)

Dear Editor – Nota Sheep (Quite A Statement)

Time for a Change -- I am a teacher at one of the schools in the Culver City Unified School District. As I fear retribution from our union leadership, I prefer to use the name Nota Sheep. Certainly, my parents were not that mean, and this is not my real name. Every two years, our union leadership chooses one or more candidates to support in the school board elections. Union leadership does [...]

Dear Editor – Clarke Weighs in

Dear Editor – Clarke Weighs in

I urge you to join me in voting for the following three candidates on Tuesday, November 5th for the Culver City Unified School District Board of Education: Kathy Paspalis Karlo Silbiger Steve Levin I place a lot of emphasis on experience. There is a steep learning curve going into any new position, especially an elected board. I can say this from personal experience. Kathy and Karlo [...]

Dear Editor – Vice Mayor Offers Who and Where

Dear Editor – Vice Mayor Offers Who and Where

Tomorrow is election day in Culver City. I hope all registered voters will take the time to cast their ballots, as the School Board has a tremendous impact on our community. Whether you have kids in the school system or not, your property values, taxes, and overall quality of life are largely determined by the state of our local schools. My three votes go to Karlo, Claudia & [...]

Dear Editor – Vote for Karlo

Dear Editor – Vote for Karlo

We support Karlo Silbiger for four more productive years on the District School Board. He pores over every detail and is able to say, "hold that elevator" when those details are not quite there in the administration of education in our schools. Aligning the interests of students, families and teaching staff is a tall order, and Silbiger is fully aware of the process as the voice of reason. [...]

Dear Editor – Signs Stolen, Candid Camera

Dear Editor – Signs Stolen, Candid Camera

Dear Editor - Here is more video footage of sign stealing. www.youtube.com/channel/UCpO8JKJPIINM8EhY6v-TuVw About six days ago I posted video of an elderly gentleman stealing School Board candidate Kathy Paspalis's yard signs from the corner of Overland and Jefferson. The police have positively identified him I had been informed that Kathy's signs were also being removed repeatedly from [...]

Dear Editor – Silbiger Gets Support

Dear Editor – Silbiger Gets Support

Dear Editor, I write to support Karlo Silbiger for re-election to Culver City School Board. Over the last four years, Karlo has shown he will make thoughtful decisions, will responsibly spend taxpayer dollars and will work to protect funding for arts and music programs. Karlo was School Board President when we were hiring our new Superintendent, David LaRose, in 2012. As such, Karlo was [...]

She wants to do more to improve our already wonderful schools, as she recognizes what a boon they are to the wider community. Claudia is committed to closing the achievement gap that exists in Culver City, so that all [...]
