Dear Editor – Strong Support for Candidates

Dear Editor – Strong Support for Candidates

I strongly support candidates Karlo Silbiger and Claudia Vizcarra. I have lived in Culver City for more than twenty years. As a former public school teacher, I appreciated the amazing education my son received in our schools and the dedication of Culver City’s teaching and support professionals. For the last eleven and three quarters of a year, I have been a Staff Attorney with the California [...]

Dear Editor – Chabola for Kathy

Dear Editor – Chabola for Kathy

As a former teacher in the CCUSD it gives me great pride to endorse Kathy Paspalis for school board. I have had the opportunity to work with many quality people in this city whose primary interest was to make a difference in our children’s lives. Kathy is one of those special people. For years the overused mantra has been “for the kids”. This has had a hollow ring, and has NOT been for [...]

Dear Editor – Robins Inspires Voters

Dear Editor – Robins Inspires Voters

Dear Editor I want to urge everyone to vote for Sue Robins for the Culver City School Board for two reasons: 1. I met Sue when she was my daughter’s 8th grade science teacher. My daughter has behavioral and emotional problems due to her abusive background before we became her fost-adopt parents. Although several of the middle school teachers were sympathetic and helpful, none were as [...]

Dear Editor – Voting for Karlo

Dear Editor – Voting for Karlo

Dear Editor, I am voting for Karlo Silbiger because he stands for decent wages for classroom aides which resonates with my family history. I grew up in Mar Vista, where my two brothers and I were raised by a single mom. For 28 years, my mother worked as a front office secretary at a Los Angeles public middle school. At the time of her retirement nine years ago, she was earning $29,000 a year. [...]

Dear Editor – Catching It All on Camera

Dear Editor – Catching It All on Camera

I had heard from people working on Kathy Paspalis’s School Board re-election campaign that her lawn signs were being stolen from around town. Hers in particular, picked out at locations where there were pairs of two or sets of three signs. I thought it would be interesting to see what really was happening. I set up security cameras at a couple of locations. It took no time to capture this [...]

Dear Editor – Golden ?

Dear Editor – Golden ?

"Uno tiene la obligacíon moral de ser responsable de sus actos y tambíen de sus palabras e incluso de sus silencios, sí, de sus silencios, porque también los silencios ascienden al cielo y los oye Dios y sólo Dios los comprende y los juzga, así que mucho cuidado con los silencios. Yo soy responsable de todo." Nocturno de Chile, Roberto Bolano (2000) One has the moral obligation to be [...]

Dear Editor – Pro and Con

Dear Editor – Pro and Con

As a Culver City parent, I believe it is time to increase the separation between the teacher's unions and the people that make decisions, which impact teacher's unions. People forget that teachers are union members and are influenced by their unions. Parents are focused on what is best for their children. We are lucky enough to have parents running in our school board election, who despite [...]

Dear Editor – Paspalis Works Hard for Our Schools

Dear Editor – Paspalis Works Hard for Our Schools

Direct, deliberate and discerning. Culver City home purchasers are attracted to this community because of the schools. School board president Kathy Paspalis does her homework for Culver City students. Paspalis has worked, the past four years, to improve our facilities while sustaining efficiencies that have allowed the school district to balance its budget. Paspalis asks the tough questions and [...]

Dear Editor – Cooper for Levin

Dear Editor – Cooper for Levin

Steve Levin will be a solid addition to our school board. Much has been made about his skills and intelligence as a rocket scientist, parent volunteer, President of the Booster Club at Farragut Elementary and former president and one of the founding members of the UPCC, but for me it is his common sense approach to problem solving that gained my support. Steve has an uncanny ability to actually [...]

Dear Editor – Lin Howe Parent Likes Silbiger

Dear Editor – Lin Howe Parent Likes Silbiger

Dear Editor: I am writing this letter to express my support for Karlo Silbiger, a candidate in the 2013 Culver City School Board election. I have a daughter who attends Linwood E. Howe Elementary School, and I have been impressed with Karlo’s service on the School Board, his knowledge and experience, steady and consistent temperament, attention to detail, and his effective and nuanced [...]
