Why is Inglewood City Clerk Yvonne Horton using inflated election costs to stop Inglewood residents from voting for local offices in March 2020?
During the city council meeting held on Tuesday, August 13th, Horton used inflated election costs to prevent residents from voting for district council members, city treasurer and her position in March. Her data allowed the council to push those elections to November.

Horton cited March 2020 election costs of $800,000 and November costs at $500,000, now that the County of Los Angeles runs our elections. Council immediately approved the November date.2020-municipal-election
2UrbanGirls initiated a public records request for past election costs. We reviewed documents detailing elections typically costing the city of Inglewood no less than $250,000. We also requested invoices her office submits to the Inglewood Unified School District, which are no more than $150,000, but her office has refused to produce those invoices.
The city of Inglewood has over 100,000 residents and nearby city of Gardena has roughly 61,000 residents.
The city of Gardena recently made the costs of their March 2020 election public, which shows the county is only charging them $170,000.Gardena-election-costs-1
*In 2014, LA County billed the city $57,583 for November 4, 2014 General Election.
*Martin and Chapman billed the city $156,643 for the April 5, 2015 General Election.
*Martin and Chapman billed the city $110,750 for the June 16, 2015 run off election.
*Martin and Chapman billed the city $211,839 for the April 2017 General Election.
2UrbanGirls contacted Horton directly, to ask how she came up with the outrageous figures presented to the public, and council back in August and she has refused to comment.

Inglewood residents should follow other city’s lead and STOP paying for an elected city clerk’s position, who continues to deceive us to stay in her high paying seat.
Deputy City Clerk Aisha Thompson, is a full-time city employee, and is more than capable of running the city clerk’s office on her own.
Inglewood residents haven’t forgot this is the same city clerk who opened her office, to Stan Kroenke and Melvin Robert, to file the NFL petition, during the annual two week public closure of city hall.Doc5
