At the March 14, 2016 City Council meeting, Weissman, Cooper, O’Leary and Clarke voted to conduct a “parking study” as to whether the 10700 block of Farragut Drive meets the current parking intrusion standards that justify permit-only parking.

Dear Editor – PRCS Moves Towards ‘Living in Harmony’

I wanted to give those of you interested an update on the PRCS Commission’s Community Conversation that was tentatively titled “Living in Harmony”. As many are aware, the idea behind this Community Conversation event developed from the recent racial discourse that occurred at CCHS earlier this year. It was determined that we should not focus on that particular event, but on multiple social [...]

Referring to Ms. Wisnosky Stehlin, Mr. Silbiger stated: "I'm sure that there were people like you in Topeka, Kansas [...]

Dear Editor – Wyant Understands the Issues

Last month I attended the Candidate Forum at City Hall where all 7 candidates running for Culver City Council had the opportunity to speak about various issues. Although all of the candidates seemed like very nice people, when it came to answering the questions posed, candidate SCOTT WYANT stood head and shoulders above the rest. I was impressed by MR. WYANT’S knowledge of all of the issues [...]

Dear Editor – Former Board Colleague Supports Scott

Dear Editor, I am proud to support Scott Wyant for City Council. I worked with Scott when we were both on the board of the Culver City Education Foundation. His daughter had already graduated from Culver City High School, but that didn’t lessen Scott’s commitment to our schools and our community. I was impressed by Scott’s tech savvy, his understanding of our community from multiple [...]
