INGLEWOOD – Inglewood elections will take place in November with three of the incumbents slated to run for re-election. During the regular city council meeting held Aug. 16 one councilman continues to exhibit decreasing mental faculties when it is time for him to deliver his closing comments.
Councilman George Dotson has been the mayor’s puppet since running for office in 2013 after Mayor James Butts loaned his campaign in excess of $100,000 which Dotson is unable to pay back. Dotson previously ran for office a record five times and continued to lose until Butts came along.
During yesterday’s meeting, when it came time to give remarks, Dotson explained he couldn’t do so without his notes.
When his notes finally arrived, he had trouble reading them. The one thing we do agree is his observation of a backpack giveaway that included Inglewood elected officials and a representative from Hollywood Park when describing them as an “assembly of lying people”.
The social media team floated pictures of the various events the council spoke on which primarily included the elected officials. All members lauded the chili cook off without mentioning who won or showing pictures of the food.
There are about a half dozen candidates running to replace him. Inglewood residents have a lot to consider when going to the polls this November.
