Culver City Democratic Club endorses King and Clarke for Culver City Council

At the February 12th general meeting of the Club we held a forum for Culver City Council Candidates. The Democratic Club is proud to announce its endorsement for two candidates for the Culver City City Council race on April 8, 2014. The two winners were Christopher Patrick “CPK” King and Jim Clarke. These candidates exemplified true compassion for their community, deep understanding of the issues, and will uphold our City’s values if elected. Both candidates were handily endorsed in the first round of voting.

Jim ClarkeA long time club member, this is Jim Clarke‘s second time winning the Club’s endorsement. The first was for his Council run two years ago and winning the unexpired term of Scott Malsin. In the past two years Clarke has voted to increase the sales tax, to ban plastic bags, called upon the Governor to ban fracking and supported major improvements in residential parking. Clarke earned a Masters of Public Administration from CSU Long Beach and a Bachelors of Science degree from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT. He spent 23 years as an active and on reserve duty, retiring as a Commander from the Coast Guard. Some of Clarke’s previous credentials include being the Chief of Staff Congress Members Diane E. Watson and Brad Sherman as well as serving as executive director to two non-profit organizations: California Clean Money Campaign and the Southern California chapter of Americans for Democratic Action. Clarke hopes to be awarded a full term this election and continue to “follow through” on his promises. http://clarke4council2014.com/
