“I’m excited to run for the city council in 2012.” Local activist Meghan Sahli-Wells has pulled papers to declare her candidacy for the upcoming Culver City City Council election at noon today, (Monday Dec. 19.)
Sahli-Wells ran a very tight race against Councilmember Jeff Cooper on the last election and has considerable support among local voters. Her passionate advocacy of green living and her many volunteer positions have made her a very visible presence in Culver City.
“The tremendous community support I recieved in the last election made the decision to run again a very easy one,” Meghan offered, “I look forward to talking with the Culver City voters in the upcoming months. That’s the most interesting and rewarding aspect of a council campaign- the direct connection to residents.”
With four seats open and one incumbent, Andy Weissman, currently campaigning, Sahli-Wells is jumping into an already interesting election. She closed by saying “I’m happy to embark on this path and encourage the community to get involved, ask questions and turn out to vote on April 10.”
