Culver City Observer -

Dear Editor


October 31, 2012

On Tuesday, November 6 the voting residents of culver city will have many choices at our voting booths -- nationally, state-wide and locally.

One vote that will affect each and every one of us in culver city is the vote to enact Measure Y – the tiny ½ penny sales tax increase that will have a huge impact on our city and will be paid for primarily by non-culver city residents who visit or work in our city.

Like you, I am used to living in a clean, safe and caring city. And like you, I do not want to see every aspect of my life change and deteriorate. Recently I was in a nearby town when a visitor standing close to me sustained a serious injury. Almost 16 minutes passed before the paramedics from that city arrived.

My colleagues and I watched helplessly as the injured man screamed in pain and desperation. Had the accident occurred in culver city, I am confident that our paramedics would have arrived at the scene and begun treating and transporting the injured man within a few minutes.

Measure Y is about maintaining public safety, public health and quality of life for everyone in culver city. It is such a small price to pay to preserve our safety services, emergency response times, programs for children, seniors, adults and pets, street repairs, parks and cultural events.

Your vote for Measure Y will guarantee you a future culver city that is as great as the city we now enjoy.
