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 [...]

Dear Editor – All Three Votes

Dear Editor – All Three Votes

I have three votes in the upcoming Board of Education election, and I plan on using all three. With one, I’m voting for Sue Robins. Sue has ALL the qualities that are needed for an effective member of a board of education. She has first hand experience of being a teacher in the Culver City Unified School District. Culver City is far different from other districts and charter schools. Indeed, [...]

Dear Editor – Paspalis, Robins, Levin

Dear Editor – Paspalis, Robins, Levin

I strongly urge you to vote for Kathy Paspalis, Sue Robins, and Steve Levin for School Board. I am a former booster club president, high school parent, and perpetual volunteer who has attended numerous School Board meetings, forums, workshops, and meetings. Based on all of these experiences I know that Kathy, Sue, and Steve are the most qualified candidates in this election cycle. Kathy has shown [...]

Dear Editor – UPCC Under Attack by UTLA

Dear Editor – UPCC Under Attack by UTLA

When did parents become the enemy of educating children? Culver City's school board election has seen some interesting activity. And now LAUSD's Teacher's Union has decided to get involved in our local election with a strongly worded letter about how UPCC (United Parents of Culver City) "is out to take over the CCUSD School Board and put into place an anti-union agenda." They continue to state [...]

Dear Editor – Robins Gets Mayor’s Vote

Dear Editor – Robins Gets Mayor’s Vote

I just met Sue at the beginning of the school board campaign and was impressed by her familiarity with issues within the district and her ideas of how to collaboratively solve these problems working with the other board members. Through her experience as a teacher, volunteer and business woman she has learned an important lesson to success in politics . It is about the we, not the me and Sue gets [...]

Dear Editor – Student Voter Supports Silbiger

Dear Editor – Student Voter Supports Silbiger

Dear Editor, Karlo Silbiger has won my endorsement. Now that I am finally of legal age to vote, I am proud to cast my first ballot in support of his reelection and I urge fellow Culver Citizens to do the same on November 5. In my time at Culver City High School, I witnessed an embarrassing absence of the student voice in the Culver City community. Critical issues have passed through the school [...]

Dear Editor – School Board Strengths

Dear Editor – School Board Strengths

Some Culver City residents may have difficulty deciding which school board candidates to vote for because this time around, each candidate has many strengths. And some residents believe in “bullet voting” in order to give their favorite candidate the best chance of succeeding. But three excellent candidates stand out from the rest. They are uniquely knowledgeable, experienced [...]
