Culver City Observer -

By Letters 

Dear Editor,

 


We live in a great city. We have high-achieving schools, robust enterprise, and active citizens who love our town and strive to improve it. And we’re fortunate to have seven hard-working, dedicated candidates running for our City Council.

Because of her commitment to improving so many aspects of our community, I’m voting for Meghan Sahli-Wells. Meghan has been our dedicated public servant these past four years and has worked to improve many aspects of Culver City.

She was instrumental in securing the Safe Routes to Schools funding that benefited all of our elementary schools, as well as pedestrians, cyclists and wheelchair users in the surrounding areas, and is working to make all of Culver City better for walking and biking.

She wants our roads safe for all vehicles, and she wants to make getting to the Metro Expo Line as easy as possible. She’s a graduate of our Citizen’s Police Academy and CERT, and is endorsed by our Culver City Police Officer’s Association and Firefighter’s Association, as well as our Culver City Employees’ Association.

Perhaps most importantly, Meghan listens to residents. When a plan was brought to the City Council proposing an exception to our billboard ban, she asked for community input. Many residents shared their views with the Council, largely due to Meghan’s rallying.

When Carlson Park residents complained about tree roots destroying their sewer lines she came to the neighborhood to talk with homeowners and see our buckled

sidewalks. And she led the battle to eliminate single- use plastic bags, reducing waste and keeping Ballona Creek and our beaches cleaner.

Meghan is working hard to balance our thriving Culver City economy with the quality of life issues impacting both residents and businesses: transportation, traffic and parking, LAX aircraft noise, tree and sidewalk maintenance, energy and sustainability, and livable neighborhoods.

I think Culver City is better than it’s ever been. But our economic and planning

successes bring challenges. Meghan Sahli-Wells is one of the leaders keeping us on track, managing the present while building for the future, and working with all constituents in our town.
