Our schools are in a serious state of disrepair, causing safety & health problems for students and staff. Our community responded by passing a $106 million school facilities bond last year. This is a large investment by every homeowner & business in Culver City. Nothing impacts your property values more than the quality of our schools. We have one chance to spend this bond money wisely. Help protect our investment
by electing the two candidates who have the greatest expertise on our bond: Anne Burke & Scott McVarish.
The new school board will decide how this money is prioritized and spent during the next six months. Burke & McVarish have been involved with the bond for the past two years – their opponent has not. This is not the time for someone to learn the complexities of our district and the bond almost overnight.
Burke & McVarish have:
1. Served on the Bond Campaign Committee
2. Participated in bond study sessions
3. Attended Bond oversight committee meetings
4. Attended Community/school bond prioritization meetings
5. Conducted independent investigations of modern science labs & education centers
6. Burke has experience as a project manager
7. McVarish is an award-winning attorney & former trainer on school district budgets and school law
Burke and McVarish’s opponent in this campaign did not vote in the school bond election, has not attended any bond meetings, and did not come to a school board meeting until August of this year, when she declared her candidacy. Considering the major decisions facing CCUSD in the coming months, Anne Burke & Scott McVarish are simply better prepared to start working right away.
