Wyant Seeks Council Seat


November 26, 2015

Scott Wyant has joined the race for one of three seats on the Culver City Council next April.

Wyant has lived in Culver City with his wife Leslie for 26 years. They chose the city because they found the level of community connection and safety to be unparalleled.

Their daughter, Molly, attended the city's public schools, and they have remained deeply involved in city affairs. Wyant is finishing his second term on the Planning Commission, where he has served with distinction for seven years.

Wyant has been a watchdog on the Commission, ensuring that changes in the city are thoroughly vetted before being enacted. Wyant has widespread support, carrying the endorsements of a majority of the current City Council including councilmembers Andy Weissman, Jim Clarke and Jeff Cooper.

Wyant is also proud to carry the endorsement of former Mayor Jozelle Smith, the second woman Mayor of Culver City. He also enjoys the support of six current and former colleagues on the Planning Commission.

Wyant decided to run for City Council because he knows through extensive experience how the city works, and he knows what is going to make the city even greater in the future.

"Growth with heart" is the catch phrase Wyant likes to use on the campaign trail, stating, "Culver City has been a great place to raise a family and develop a successful and rewarding career. I want to ensure that the city remains a place of close community, where leaders, citizens and businesses work together towards a bright future."

Wyant has been the principal of his own company, Scott Wyant Information Systems Analysis and Design since 2004, bringing technology, people and business together for the 21st century.

Wyant has also served on the Board of Directors at the Culver City Education Foundation. It was there that he developed a deeper understanding of the educational system in Culver City, and its critical importance to our children's future success.

Having served on the Culver City Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors since 2007, Scott continues to provide his knowledge and skills in multiple areas. For the past two years, Wyant has been serving as the Government Relations Chair. He is also the founding Chair of the Transportation Task Force, which is partnering with the City to find ways to streamline and improve transportation for business employees, customers, and suppliers.

Scott provided his services to IndieCade serving as Technical Chair for their first three years in operation, and was critical to the local establishment of the festival.

Scott earned his Master's degree from UCLA in Information Systems and Analysis Design and he earned his Bachelor's degree from UC Irvine in Comparative Culture. Scott is also fluent in Spanish having lived in Mexico and Guatemala for a year and a half with his wife.

Wyant joins current councilmember Meghan Sahli-Wells who is seeking reelection along with Goran Erickson and Marcus Tiggs who have previously announced their intention to run.

Current councilmembers Andy Weissman and Mehaul O'Leary are barred from seeking another term due to term limits.
