As a Culver City resident for 50 plus years, I can attest to the community benefits of our remarkably well-run local government. I acknowledge the present traumatic effects of our national economic recession and its threat to the maintenance of our comfortable, local existence.
Without the passage of Proposition Y, which would add a minimal increase to our local retail tax base, the continuance of present services will the threatened. Our locally elected councilmen cannot avoid further cuts to local services if Proposition Y does not pass.
Please join me in voting for Proposition Y; you will be ensuring the continuance of present city services such as garbage collection and emergency response by the fire and police departments.
As a member of the your school board, I view this proposition’s passage as essential to the continued functioning of our local government. The adage “Penny wise and pound foolish “ comes to mind in this case.
For such a moderate tax increase, let’s ensure our continued level of community service.
