Dear Editor – Using All the Votes

Dear Editor – Using All the Votes

Dear Editor, As we move into the last month of the School Board campaign, we as parents and citizens of Culver City need to do our research and elect the best possible candidates for our children and the city. What Board composition would best represent us as a community? I am interested in electing parents that have been successful leaders in their careers and involved volunteers in the [...]

Dear Editor- Silbiger and Solar Power

Dear Editor, As a committed sustainability advocate, I strongly support Karlo Silbiger for School Board. Karlo has been the most active and vocal supporter on the School Board for installing the new solar energy system. This system will bring in a guaranteed $8.5 million in unrestricted money to our general school fund. The revenues from solar energy can be used to pay for anything the Culver [...]

Why We Shouldn’t Celebrate Colombus Day – Scott Kecken

Why We Shouldn’t Celebrate Colombus Day – Scott Kecken

Every year about this time of year, near October 12th, I become aware of a deep sense of grief. The energy is palatable, thick in the air. On that day over 500 years ago, a man started a destructive path that we honor with Columbus Day. Columbus Day is a day of mourning for Native people who call our home in this “new world”, Turtle Island. Columbus wasn’t the first European to come here [...]

Dear Editor – Keeping the Kids First

Dear Editor – Keeping the Kids First

Put our kids first on November 5th – re-elect Kathy Paspalis and vote in Steve Levin and Sue Robins. Paspalis’ matchless work ethic and her training as an attorney are invaluable. Her oversight ensured that the District’s recent exciting capital improvement projects – new sports facilities and a solar initiative – were well managed and cost-effective. She is forthright, asks the [...]

Dear Editor – Healthy Dialogue

Dear Editor – Healthy Dialogue

Recently, concerns have been raised about negative campaigning in the Culver City School Board election. When candidates file papers to run, they are given the opportunity to sign the "Code of Fair Campaign Practices" - per Elections Code Section 20440-20444 (see full [...]

Dear Editor – Nov. 5 Headed This Way

Dear Editor – Nov. 5 Headed This Way

Culver City residents, October 8 was Walk to School Day. November 5 will be walk to your polling place day. For those voting by mail, you likely received your ballot yesterday. My 21 year old son did, in Evanston, Illinois and will be voting this school board election. How about you? There are seven candidates running for three seats, so the election may be tight. The three candidates who [...]

Dear Editor – Where’s the $28,000?

Dear Editor – Where’s the $28,000?

The past five years have seen disastrous budget cuts Karlo Silbiger advised during The League of Woman’s Voter/PTA Council candidate forum Thursday evening October 3. So why then did he, Nancy and Patricia vote to spend $28,000 to an outside consulting firm to investigate placing a bond measure on our November ballot then do nothing to track, monitor, direct, report on those efforts until the [...]

Dear Editor – Mayor Cooper Supports Paspalis

Dear Editor – Mayor Cooper Supports Paspalis

Four years ago after sitting down with then candidate Kathy Paspalis, I decided to endorse her based on her goals and objectives that she was focused on. Four years later, I am proud to endorse Kathy for reelection to the Board of Education as she not only has achieved much of what she strived to do, but did it with drive, passion and intelligence. It is her passion for the job and fierce [...]

Dear Editor – Youth Health Center Applauds Student Volunteers

The Friends of the Culver City Youth Health Center which provides free health care to students on campus, was invited by Principal Dylan Farris to set up a booth at the High School for their Club Day. What an incredible event. We couldn't believe how well organized it was. The students set up what looked like about 40 booths in about 10 minutes, the event lasted 40 minutes, and then they broke it [...]

Dear Editor – Right for Our Students

Dear Editor – Right for Our Students

I have a “Re-Elect Kathy Paspalis” sign proudly displayed on my lawn. It’s not only an attractive sign, but it also stands for doing what’s right for our students. I had the pleasure of working alongside Kathy for two years on the Culver City Board of Education, the very board that she seeks reelection. I do not have to speculate as to what Kathy would do if elected, I’ve seen what [...]
