From Overlooked in Culver City

May 01, 1988

Thank you for publishing Sheldon Ito's article, "Postman Comes Late in Culver City Election" (Times, April 24). The problem Ito points out is very real. Even today, April 25, my neighbors and I have received some bulk mailings regarding the April 12 election.

More serious than the issue of political mailings, which are financed with donated funds, is the issue of municipal mailings, which are paid for with our tax dollars. We are often informed of Culver City events long after they occur, if we are informed at all. For example, we have not received questionnaires relating to "Direction 21," a major advance planning project undertaken by Culver City in recent months, and we were informed one week late of a public meeting where we could have given our input on the project.

Culver City taxpayers/residents living west of Sawtelle do not receive the weekly Culver City News unless we pay to subscribe, yet this paper is delivered without charge to households with ZIP codes in the 90230-90232 series. We receive the Culver City Wave and Culver City Independent, but these weekly papers are not published in Culver City and do not cover Culver City happenings as thoroughly as does the Culver City News.

I suspect that many Culver City taxpayers/residents with 90066 ZIP codes do not even realize that they live in Culver City. This can only be considered a great loss for Culver City and for the individual citizens, especially if these citizens are paying more for car and/or homeowner's insurance because of their "Los Angeles" ZIP codes.

Thank you again for helping to call attention to the problem of Culver City 90066.
