Fisch Makes it Official – Incumbent Declares for Council Contest

Council Member Alex Fisch has announced that he is running for his second term on the Culver City Council and will be throwing a campaign kickoff party on August 14 at 3 p.m.

Alex’s vision for Culver City prioritizes (1) optimizing public safety, public space, and public health for all, (2) expanding affordable housing and reducing homelessness, and (3) investing in mobility options and improving our local environment while leading the region in increasing sustainability and climate resilience.

The City Council took major steps towards this vision during Alex’s first term: legislating to phase out oil production within city limits, expanding tenants’ rights, providing emergency rental assistance, substantially reducing the city’s structural deficit, expanding outreach to the unhoused, winning a Project Homekey grant to convert two motels into 76 homes for those most in need, and approving the creation of a mobile crisis response service. He was also instrumental in good government reforms like consolidating local elections with state and federal elections and making campaign finance disclosures easily available to the public.

He is also proud of Culver City’s response to COVID. During the pandemic, the council moved quickly to assist residents with necessities like meal delivery and regular phone calls to seniors while assisting businesses with expanded outdoor dining, fee waivers, and tax deferrals. Because of these efforts, Culver City was a finalist for the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation’s “Eddy Awards,” recognizing leadership on economic development issues in business, education, and government

Alex represents the City on the Westside Cities Council of Governments (the COG), and represents the COG on the Regional Council of the Southern California Council of Governments. His regional work has helped Culver City position itself to reap grants and awards from the Biden Infrastructure Bill, various state environmental, housing, and mobility programs, Olympic funding, and regional opportunities.

Alex’s early endorsements include the Culver City Democratic Club, Abundant Housing LA, Supervisor Holly Mitchell, Senator Sydney Kamlager, Assembly Member Isaac Bryan, Council Member Yasmine-Imani McMorrin, School Board Members Kelly Kent and Paula Amezola, and former Culver City Mayors Meghan Sahli-Wells, and Andy Weissman.

Alex is also an attorney for the California Department of Justice, in the Natural Resource Law Section of the Attorney General’s Office, and a proud CCUSD dad.
