Once Again Fox Hills Overlooked

 


I really don’t know why but it seems the City of Culver City, in my opinion, treats Fox Hills residents as stepchildren. The latest insult concerns the Voting Center scheduled to be up and running for the 2020 election. Fox Hills was not included even though it’s a very dense area with the highest minority population in our town and one of the largest Black population by percentage in Los Angeles County. Fox Hills has nearly 3,000 housing units and approximately twice that number of residents. In the opinion of many the Westfield Mall Culver City AKA Fox Hills would have been an excellent venue, because its disability accessible with a huge parking area, good bathrooms, easily accessible by numerous buses and the freeway. For those reasons no other site has those benefits for the voters. Although, Grace Lutheran was accepted the church has limited parking.

It wasn’t that long ago-February 2, 2016 to be exact that the Marine Corps Commandant General Robert Neller, said at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, “every American who is physically qualified should register for the draft.” The Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley agreed. Does it mean women will register for the draft and if so -when?

Nineteen or so years ago, like so many attended the services at First AMC Church for our beloved Congressman Julian Dixon.
