Culver City Neighbors United, a grass-roots neighbor-to-neighbor group that advocates for government accountability, sensible leadership, and community-based solutions, endorses Dan O’Brien and Denice Renteria for City Council. Voting Ends November 8th.
Dan O’Brien and Denice Renteria will bring accountable and accessible leadership to the City Council. Creative artists with deep roots in Culver City, they are natural collaborators who will restore the public’s trust in our local government. Through their civic involvement, volunteerism, and actions, Dan O’Brien and Denice Renteria have demonstrated an authentic commitment to engaging stakeholders in our community and not just the people they agree with. Their dedication to respectfully bringing people together to find solutions to our problems is one of the reasons why Dan O’Brien and Denice Renteria are the leaders that we need in City Hall NOW. We trust Dan and Denice to make smart decisions regarding:
Smart, sustainable, and sensible development
Upholding California’s laws that protect our unique neighborhoods
Affordable housing where it is possible and where we need it the most
Safety for everyone in Culver City
Effective, practical, and earth-friendly transportation solutions
Compassionate and collaborative solutions for the homelessness crisis
Diversity, equity, inclusion, and access for all who live, play, visit, and work in Culver City
Accountable and accessible leadership in City Hall
Dan O’Brien has decades of community involvement in Culver City and a reputation for being a collaborative leader with a record of getting things done.CCNU is especially impressed with Dan’s approach to leadership; as a city council member, he is committed to communicating with constituents respectfully, with a desire to listen and understand, regardless of their position on any topic. He plans to actively seek to meet with the public “where they are.” Regarding Affordable Housing, Dan stated that too much of our time has been focused on dismantling our R1 neighborhoods, and instead a focus needs to be placed where we can have the greatest impact: in large-scale developments on land that could be zoned as such. Other top issues are: using a balanced approach to addressing the homelessness crisis, public safety and policing, traffic and mobility, and lack of public amenities such as a community center, world-class performing arts venue, multifunctional sports complex, expanded swim stadium, and a greener Ballona Creek with expanded bike lanes and pedestrian space.
Denice Renteria is a true “hometown” candidate. A Culver City native whose family has lived in our community for over 60 years, Denice is a first-generation American and will be the first Mexican-American Latina to serve on Council. CCNU is especially impressed with Denice’s “back to basics” approach to leadership; as a city council member she is committed to immediately implementing initiatives that will help our unhoused population obtain safe housing; promoting sensible solutions for creating needed affordable housing without making drastic changes to what makes our neighborhoods unique; enhancing the safety and security of all our residents, workers, and people who visit Culver City; championing safe and convenient transportation downtown and throughout Culver City; and advocating for environmental sustainability by finding innovative solutions for the city, businesses, and individual households.
Vote for Dan O’Brien and Denice Renteria before Nov. 8th and support new leadership on our City Council!
