Marcus Tiggs Announces his run for Culver City Council
Marcus Tiggs, a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel and combat veteran, has announced his candidacy for Culver City Council. Citing his love for his hometown, Tiggs spoke about the importance of keeping neighborhoods safe, helping Culver City attract jobs, and continuing to work towards making the community the best hometown possible.
Tiggs declared, “Since I was nine years old Culver City as a community has helped shape my success and it has been an honor to serve on our planning commission and throughout the community. We are a vital, and diverse community. By working to keep our neighborhoods safe from crime and cut through traffic, working to bring job creators and innovators to Culver City so residents can build their careers here, and continuing to engage the community in building a great hometown, together we will achieve great things for all residents.”
Before serving in the military, Tiggs graduated from Pepperdine. Since his retirement from the army he has practiced law. For two decades Tiggs has helped negotiate and argue cases all the way to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
“Culver City has always been a great crossroads culturally and regionally and when we capitalize on that we flourish,” explained Tiggs. “My career in public service has taken me into command situations around the globe, while my legal career has helped resolve incredibly complex financial challenges. On our Council I will put that experience to work keeping the City focused on being responsive to the residents, while wisely allocating and spending our tax dollars on needed projects.”
Martin Feinberg, Realtor, was interested in Tiggs’ goal to get the community more involved in local government. Marcus believes that this will help keep Culver City Real Estate neighborhoods safer from crime, that it will enhance senior and children services, and also help government decisions to be more transparent.
According to Tiggs, “Solutions don’t just come from one person’s idea but from a careful review of all sides of an argument. With full participation by residents and other stakeholders we will build a consensus without losing sight of what the common goal is—enhancing our quality of life. On our Council I will push to make sure that we work together so that Culver City works for every resident.”
Tiggs plans to kick off his campaign with a party on Sunday, December 3 from 2-4 p.m. at the home of Mike “Mr. Culver City” Cohen, 4378 Jasmine Ave., Culver City CA 90232. Everyone is invited to attend the event and have the opportunity to get to know Tiggs in person.
