On election day, I’ll not vote! Nothing changes, politicians can't make changes and they only think for their own pockets. I share this opinion with the majority of voters. Do the math! How many qualified voters? What is the number of actual votes? So, what is the actual percentage that voted a person into office? It is usually about 17 percent that stands up to vote a person into office!

On election day, I’ll be voting YES on MEASURE CC to fix Culver City schools. It's a important school bond to fix up Culver City's schools. The education in Culver City is excellent.
