Mother used to say, “Money doesn’t grow on trees”, so I asked the Culver City Unified School District in the beginning of 2018 how much money they spent to pass the forthcoming Parcel Tax election. From September 15, 2017, to February 8, 2018, they spent $48,617.68 which includes $14,332.52 for printing and postage for the community mailer.
