I am a 15-year Culver City resident and homeowner, and the mother of two children in Culver City schools. My husband and I chose Culver City as our home because of its strong, vibrant schools; its safe, close-knit neighborhoods; and its culturally diverse and dedicated residents. These are our values, and—importantly—the values integral to Meghan’s vision for Culver City.
We all recognize the impact that our difficult economy has had on Culver City. But while others may wring their hands, Meghan communicates a refreshing, positive perspective. Meghan is focused and creative; she brings innovation and energy to confront thorny problems and find viable solutions.
As a City Council member, Meghan will work cooperatively and imaginatively with her fellow council members and city staff, the school board, community businesses, and residents to improve the quality of life and learning in Culver City.
I want my kids (and my grandchildren!) to be able to walk or ride to school on safe streets. I want them to live in a city that prizes healthy neighborhoods, responsible growth, and high quality education. It is a tall order. It requires resourceful, receptive, keen leadership unbowed by the complexity of the challenges before us. Meghan Sahli-Wells is that inspired, productive, tireless leader who will deliver.
