How to Vote- Part 3 by Steve Gourley

How to Vote- Part 3 by Steve Gourley

Editor's Note- In this final section of Steve Gourley essay, the rewards for your participation are outlined. Guess what? If you follow my advice, your rise to power in Culver City cost you almost nothing: half a day helping; calling people to turn out the vote; telling the man where you wanted your lawn sign; a $5.00 contribution. Better yet, the city did not have to spend your tax [...]

How To Vote- Part 2 by Steve Gourley

Editor's note- yesterday's post ( see below) featured easy ways to get politically involved in Culver City. Today, Mr. Gourley takes us to the next level. Two things which require actual effort: 1. Write one of those phony letters to the editor that appear at election time in all the local papers, including this one, extolling some courageous personal stance your candidate took, or time [...]

Looking Forward by Ted Bellamy

Looking Forward by Ted Bellamy

Back in the 50s, we had a neighbor down the street who bought a new car every year. A proud, lonely, angry man, Robert would drive slowly down the street every Sunday, honking his horn and waving at each of us poor saps doing yard work. In 1958 or 59, I don't remember which, he bought himself a new Chrysler Imperial. It was a magnificent hunk of Detroit steel - nearly 20 feet long, with [...]

Dear Editor- Not A Fan of Cooper

Dear Editor- Not A Fan of Cooper

Dear Editor, I remember untrue statements made by Mr. Jeff Cooper in a City Council meeting of November 11, 2008. The stating of incorrect facts were an attempt to justify asking the council to not waste its time and money to enforce an agreement, which was set up to protect my neighborhood. Quoting dates that are years off the mark every time he quoted one is not a good sign for someone who is [...]

How to Vote By Steven Gourley

This article is in response to Judith Martin-Straw's recent essay which pointed out that "parents don't vote" in local elections. Actually parents don't vote, but grandparents do vote. A very large number of voters are in their '60's, 70's, 80's and even '90's. So here is not only a lesson for parents to teach them how to vote, but to let them know how they can be very influential in our [...]

As you visit the Tuesday Culver City Farmers Market, make a point of [...]
