Cymbrowitz, Scavo, MBNA Rally Behind Fidler Campaign


A tipster in Manhattan Beach sent us the above letter, which we’re told is being distributed to homes throughout the community.

The letter is an endorsement for Lew Fidler from Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz, Community Board 15 Chairperson Theresa Scavo, 61st Precinct Community Council President Yves Etienne, MBNA President Alan Ditchek, MBNA spokesperson Edmond Dweck and… well, ol’ Ed Eisenberg, who has a knack for getting his name places.

Although as a councilman Lew Fidler does not represent Manhattan Beach, he will if elected to the State Senate during the March 20 special election. And the letter goes on to note the various achievements Fidler has scored over the years in the communities he does cover – tailored of course to Manhattan Beach interests (think: traffic, traffic, traffic!).

Our favorite part is the reference to Fidler’s victory in getting Department of Transportation Commission Janette Sadik-Khan to come down to Gerritsen Beach dressed as The Black Dahlia. It has nothing to do with the achievement, and everything to do with making that joke…
