The latest supporters join a slate of endorsers that already includes U.S. Representative Karen Bass, State Assemblymember Holly Mitchell, Culver City Council Member and former Mayor Christopher Armenta, and all five Culver City School Board members: Karlo Silbiger, Katherine Paspalis, Patricia Siever, Laura Chardiet and Nancy Goldberg.
“Meghan’s strong commitment to Culver City residents and balanced approach to leadership are why I am so proud to endorse her in the 2012 election,” stated Assemblymember Holly Mitchell, who serves California’s 47th Assembly District.
City Council Member Christopher Armenta noted, “In the years she has spoken before the Council, Meghan has shown herself to be a strong, consistent, advocate for Culver City residents. From development to environment to education to transportation, she has the knowledge and experience to lead our city toward a healthy future.”
Meghan’s candidacy is also endorsed by a substantial roster of current and former Culver City mayors, Council members, officials, commissioners, and School Board members, including Civil Service Commissioner Dan Gallagher, Cultural Affairs Commissioner Ronnie Jayne, Advisory Committee on Redevelopment members Vernon Taylor, Jr. and David Voncannon, Former Culver City Mayor Dr. James Boulgarides, and Former Mayor Gary Silbiger, Downtown Neighborhood Association founder Judy Miller, and former School Board Members Dr. Wanda Boulgarides, Stew Bubar, and Barbara Honig.
“School Board and Council members who cooperate on community issues directly benefit their city,” observed School Board Member Nancy Goldberg. “That potential for exchange is why I support her candidacy…I cannot imagine a better advocate for Culver City residents.”
