Five of six candidates for seats on the Culver City School Board attended a forum in September during which all five expressed their support for Measure E. They were: Alan Elmont, Patricia Siever, Kathy Paspalis, Robert Zirgulis, and Karlo Silbiger. Zirgulis said he is usually "opposed to new taxes, especially during a recession" but he is supporting EE because "the situation in the schools is dire.”[1]

Supporters of Measure EE sponsored a march in Culver City on September 26 to express their enthusiasm for a "yes" vote on Measure EE.[2]
