It was difficult to find Councilman Jim Clarke amongst all the supporters and well-wishers at his kick-off event this past Sunday, December 1st. The yard of Mr. Culver City Mike Cohen’s home was filled with many neighbors, friends, and political allies enjoying the perfect weather and good eats wishing Jim well as he begins his campaign for re-election to a seat on the City Council.
The candidate (pictured here with Mayor Jeff Cooper ) was introduced by fellow Councilman Andy Weissman as Mr. Everything for his attention and response to issues raised by residents. A special song created and performed by School Board Member Laura Chardiet and campaign treasurer Maren Neufeld made the event even more special.
Jim won a seat on the council in 2012 when, for the first time, four out of five seats needed to be filled. Since he was elected to the unexpired term of a council member who resigned his position, Jim is up for election again after only two years. The theme for his last campaign was “Listening to your concerns, responding to your needs.” For the 2014 campaign the theme is “Following Through.”
