City employee here! THANK YOU SO MUCH for exposing Yvonne Horton and Aisha Thompson for using their positions to deceive Inglewood voters. Your articles were a hot topic of discussion around city hall today and Wanda’s report shows how slimy Mayor Butts is to try and get a raise out of residents.
If he wants to be paid more he should be in the private sector. With all his “accomplishments” wouldn’t someone be happy to take him? Oops, he likes sleeping with the staff. He would cost them too much in sexual harassment lawsuits. You see what happened to Tavis Smiley. He owes his former employer almost $3 million.
Anyhow. Check out this email we just got from City Manager Artie Fields. Wanda Brown said the city paid nearly $270,000 for COVID-19-related activities. We looked at the warrant register and some of the money is coming out of Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) funds.
They are making us wear masks, with the city seal, and now they want US to pay for extras? We were issued two but why should we have to pay for more, when the city is being reimbursed under the CARES Act funding they received, for anything COVID-19 related? Wanda pointed out they aren’t FDA-approved so why can’t we buy our OWN masks to wear to work? It’s the SAME product just without the city seal.
By the way, Butts was at a food giveaway today at the stadium that no one knew about. It was an event by Mari Morales who Wanda mentioned in her report as one of the people who would support giving him a raise.
