Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, whose Second District includes Culver City, announced on Jan. 11 that he is supporting Councilmember Scott Malsin in his re-election bid.
Ridley-Thomas has worked closely with Malsin and Culver City to address citizens’ concerns over plans by Plains Exploration & Production (PXP) to expand its oil drilling operations in Culver City and the adjacent Inglewood Oil Fields. Additionally, Malsin and Ridley-Thomas are both Directors of the Exposition Construction Authority, which is building the Expo light rail line to Culver City and on to Santa Monica.
Regarding the issue of oil drilling, Ridley-Thomas had high praise for Malsin. “Scott has shown tremendous leadership on the matter. I know that he always puts the concerns of his constituents and the best interests of his city first. Culver City should be proud to have someone of Scott’s character and dedication on the City Council.”
“In working with Scott, I have come to value his effectiveness and his ability to make the right decisions for his community,” said the supervisor. “As we continue to face financial and environmental challenges and manage regional issues from public transportation to parks, I know that I can count on Scott Malsin to be a strong leader for Culver City.”
