Dear Editor – Learning and Earning

Dear Editor – Learning and Earning

Dear Editor: I have always said that anyone that runs for office should be commended. However, some people simply need to be better informed and involved before they do so. Kelly Kent is in that category. In Culver City, you have to earn things. Culver City School Board Candidate Kelly Kent has not earned a place as an elected official. Kelly is attempting to gain office through [...]

Dear Editor – #NoFlyDay Rally

Out of the 19 million people in Southern California, over 8.6 million will experience an increase in aircraft noise from the rollout of the FAA’s NextGen proposal. This past Saturday 150 Culver City residents and activists gathered for a #NoFlyDay rally in front of Culver City Hall. We were there to talk about Culver City noise and protest the FAA's NextGen program. Touted as a program to [...]

Dear Editor, I had plans to write a letter today, in support of Anne Burke and Scott McVarish for school board. I’m writing a different letter instead. Make no mistake, I definitely still support Scott and Anne. However, I was so impressed by their recent Facebook post that I feel compelled to comment. As is usual these days, the candidates are using social media to campaign, and every so [...]

Dear Editor – Voting for Kent

Dear Editor – Voting for Kent

Dear Editor, My absentee ballot was mailed today with a vote for Dr. Kelly Kent. It is rare that we have someone with her qualifications on our school board. An educator, Dr. Kent understands the learning process and will put in the time and energy to provide our students with what they need to excel both as students and as citizens. Based on her research and classroom expertise, she knows how [...]

Dear Editor – ¿Quién es Kelly Kent ?

Dear Editor – ¿Quién es Kelly Kent ?

Dear Editor, Throughout this school board campaign, one of the primary questions about Kelly Kent is “Who is she?” and “What is her experience working with our Culver City schools?" These are questions I am uniquely positioned to answer, and I believe that my perspective may be of benefit to the electorate, who are being asked to select candidates in our upcoming local election. For [...]

Dear Editor – Proven Experience and Fresh Ideas

I moved to Culver City five years ago specifically so that my children could attend its phenomenal grade schools. As my daughter prepares to graduate from El Marino, I am looking at the middle school and high schools with the hope and expectation that she and her brother will continue receiving an extraordinary public education. Though both schools have shown marked improvement in recent years, [...]

Dear Editor – Kent Brings Wisdom

Dear Editor – Kent Brings Wisdom

It is refreshing to learn that we in Culver City are blessed to have Dr Kelly Kent, an Educational Neuroscientist, willing to serve as a School Board member. As a seasoned educator and psychotherapist for the past 30 years, I've witnessed the benefits my clients enjoy from applied neuroscience. We can too! How? Last year we voted to spend over $200 million (Bond + interest) to improve our [...]

Dear Editor – Walking the Talk

Dear Editor – Walking the Talk

I am avidly and proudly supporting both Anne Burke and Scott McVarish because of my many years of working with both of them and my high regard for what they have accomplished for our schools in past years. Anne Burke, received the Volunteer of the Year award from the Culver City Education Foundation in 2011 for CCUSD’s office of Child Development when her children were in preschool. She [...]

Dear Editor – Democratic Embarassment

Dear Editor – Democratic Embarassment

In the October 2015 newsletter of the Culver City Democratic Club, club officer Pat Levinson wrote, "as Anne Burke ended her concluding statement, she remarked that she was 'the only candidate of color' for the Board election. Huh? Don’t keep us in suspense, Anne. Which color is that?" Wow. That kind of small-minded bigotry from Ms. Levinson has no place in Culver City. Anne Burke is the [...]

Dear Editor – Support for Kent

Why am I walking and talking to my neighbors about Kelly Kent? I am inspired to do this for three reasons: * She is a parent and she is an educator. Having both perspectives allows her to see the work of the Board both from the perspective of the professionals who work in the schools and from the perspective of the parents being served. This is essential. * Kelly understands that parent [...]
