Our current Council is divided 3-2 on issues people once took for granted:
- Restore a second lane of traffic downtown
- Defend CCPD funding and reputation
- Remove tent camps at Senior Center and freeway underpasses
The 2024 election appears to be no different. Meanwhile, Culver City has graduated beyond the era of individual candidate. We now have two political “parties” in our city, for lack of a better term. Currently, the three member Council majority, and several players, are lining up behind three candidates for 2024: Albert Vera, Jeannine Wisnosky-Stehlin, and Denice Renteria. The two member Council minority is standing behind Yasmine Imani-McMorrin, Bubba Fish, and Nancy Barba.
As this election won’t be until November, with no primary, we will have this on the back burner. The March primary has some more pressing issues to deal with – County Supervisor, District Attorney, and a CCUSD bond issue.
Culver City requires cooperation with the County Supervisors to deliver on public safety and resolving homelessness. Our current supervisor, Holly Mitchell, is a Housing First advocate and a police Defunder, who just renewed her endorsement of DA George Gascon. We need better representation at the county level if we are to succeed as a city. Meet a couple candidates who have a different vision for the county.
We will host meet and greets for two challengers:
Monday, December 4th, 7pm
Wednesday, December 13th, 7pm
In-person at Veterans’ Park Kaizuka Room or online via Zoom
No RSVP needed for Zoom – but encouraged for in-person
Daphne is an independent based out of Ladera Heights. Clint is a Democrat based out of Marina Del Rey. Both speak emphatically about the need for public safety in the county as well as the County’s responsibilities on resolving homelessness. We encourage people to check out their websites and get in contact with the candidates.
