Mayor Sahli-Wells is a wonderful facilitator, communicator, and innovator for city government. She did a exemplary job of representing her constituents in Culver City and of putting the city on the map nationally in the most favorable light possible. She has become a model for what a more responsive, responsible, and engaging person can do in what has heretofore been largely a ceremonial position. Future mayors now have a clear standard of excellence to live up to. Great job, Meghan!
Donna Kent Says:
Mayor Meghan did a fine job and tried her hardest to promote ideas and efforts that were based on the needs of the many. I wish she had had more backing and support from other council memebers.
Cary Anderson Says:
Since 2009 Culver City has been allowing billboards on the mall that do NOT conform with the Design For Development (DFD). Two current sitting Council Members voices are heard in the 2009 video but yet they allow billboards and want to study more?! https://youtu.be/r1pjE1ow2LY
Michael Milligan Says:
Take one look at Westfield Fox Hills Mall to get an idea of what billboards look like (these eyesores were brought to you by Scott Malsin). The absence of billboards is one of the few niceties we get in exchange for paying the highest property taxes, the highest sales taxes, the highest utility taxes, etc. Whichever local leaders are behind this abominable idea should be apologizing to Culver City, on their knees.
Marilyn Russell Says:
Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells once commented that when there are no billboards in your city you just feel better and she is exactly right. It is delightful to live in a city where you are not accosted by billboards, messages, and advertising. It makes a lovely difference. It would be a big change in Culver City's pleasant atmosphere to allow billboards.

Rent control is "Hood Robin" -- robbing the poor and giving to the rich. Here's how: In Soviet Monica, for every "deserving" family living in a rent control unit, there are several lawyers, doctors and other upper class income citizens, who were selected by landlords because they will pay for the building upkeep, or because they gave a nice cash envelope with the rental application.
If you were forced to lose money by your socialist government, you would have no choice but to do the same. Rent control does the exact opposite of what it's supposed to do.
Sandy Stivers Says:
No. I used to attend a church that had virtually no parking and had a huge congregation that had to park on residential streets. It would never have occurred to me if there had been restricted parking to go to the city council and attempt to change the residents' parking restrictions for the few hours a month I attended church. It's unreasonable.
James Province Says:
Houses of worship should be modeling good neighbor behavior and provide at least some level of parking for it's congregants and not treat surrounding neighborhoods as their private parking lot. There is only one church in CC that relies solely on street parking. (Grace Lutheran Church). It amazes me that this church expects it's neighbors to absorb whatever parking and traffic intrusion increases it creates. There are multiple parking options that do not necessitate imposing on it's neighbors. I was once inclined to support them, but they have created a lot of ill will.
Ronald Davis Says:
No. Especially NO when the neighborhood is already burdened with school activities day and night and when other options are available to church members. And especially NO when the church in question makes no "good faith" effort to address the problem (if a problem exists). Church services and non-church meetings and such should not pose an unfair parking burden on the church's neighbors simply to avoid a minor inconvenience for church members.
