(Culver City) – Marcus G. Tiggs, a Culver City resident for over 20 years and candidate in the upcoming Culver City Council election today submitted his nomination papers with the City Clerk. The final step in the nomination process is for the county to verify nomination signatures to certify Tiggs’ as a candidate. According to Tiggs, what sets him apart is his proven leadership abilities in and outside Culver City, his breadth of experience working on various city commissions/committees, and his time-tested ability to work as a team with others, regardless of differing political or social views.

Tiggs states a candidate’s philosophy gives a peek into how the candidate, if elected, will evaluate and decide on a multitude of issues. Marcus’ political philosophy he says is not complex, but is based on his strong belief in collaboratively working together for common goals, encouraging participation from various view points, and most important, listening to all sides without being forced politically or personally to prematurely take one side.
