Mayor Cooper Announces Re-Election Kickoff Party
Mayor Jeff Cooper
On Sunday, November 24, Mayor Jeff Cooper will join supporters from throughout the city to officially kick off his re-election campaign at an event from 2 to 5 p.m. at the home of Beverly and Dan O'Brien at 10824 Lindblade Avenue in Culver City.
"I am proud of what I have helped accomplish in Culver City since being elected in 2010, but I recognize that there is much more work to be done," Jeff said. "That is why I am excited to announce that I will be seeking re-election to the City Council. I look forward to hearing what residents think about the direction of our city and how we can work together to make Culver City the best it can be."
Refreshments will be served, and all supporters are invited to attend.
A nearly 25-year resident of Culver City, Cooper is a businessman and a community leader with a track record of fighting for Culver City's neighborhoods.
As mayor, he led the charge to fight the practice of fracking, encouraging the State of California to put a moratorium on fracking until it develops guidelines that guarantee safety for our residents. He took a leadership role in creating the city's ban on single-use plastic bags. He helped lead the effort to create Tilden Terrace – a mixed-use and affordable housing project that, for the first time, allowed Culver City to fulfill its affordable housing requirement. He led the City Council effort to institute new measures to reduce cut-through traffic in Sunkist Park.
Cooper believes the City should make public safety a top priority and joined the City in unveiling the State of California's first Smart911 system – a technology that allows residents to give authorities a "safety profile" that will be displayed to 911 operators during an emergency.
