As a Culver City home owner for 17-years and a parent of three CCUSD students, I am strongly in favor of Measure K.
By voting to spend just $189 per parcel per year, we can collectively raise over $2.3 million in critically needed funds that will enable us to maintain the excellent schools on which Culver City prides itself.
I love being able to send my kids to our city’s public schools and know that they will receive a great education. I love not having to spend tens of thousands of dollars every year in private school tuition. I love that the strength of our school system has contributed to the substantial gain in my property value. I love that our community values education and invests in our students who will become our future leaders and innovators.
I am willing to chip in a small amount annually to supplement the funds that our district receives from the state, which are simply insufficient to provide the high level of educational quality that we want for our students. I am not willing to risk the severe budget cuts and potential increases in class sizes that will occur if Measure K does not pass by the 2/3 majority of the vote it needs.
I know that 100% of the money raised by Measure K will stay in Culver City, and that no portion of it will be directed to administrators’ salaries. In addition, there will be an independent citizen oversight committee to monitor expenditures and ensure that the dollars raised through Measure K are spent wisely.
Measure K what our community needs, and it’s what our students deserve. Please join me and vote YES on Measure K.
