INGLEWOOD – A shuttered Inglewood school will not be developed into housing, as of now, despite assertions from a community group alleging otherwise.
There was robust community support to keep the school open, and was organized under the banner of Inglewood Rising, consisting of husband and wife who live near the now closed Warren Lane Elementary School. Now the husband has pulled nomination forms to run for the District 1 council seat, under the backdrop of allegations that the school is being developed into housing.
County Administrator Dr. Erika Torres sent an email to parents today debunking that myth, however, there have been no public discussion on whether a letter co-signed by her and Mayor James T. Butts requesting a resolution surrounding an emergency loan the district took out when it went into receivership.
Asm. Tina McKinnor, who represents the Inglewood area, claims the state’s budget included Inglewood Unified School District, however, her official website hasn’t been updated since she took office. She has been busy posting photos of herself throughout the newly created Assembly District 61, since she is back on the ballot this November. She has also appeared to have cozied up to Inglewood officials who all supported her opponent Lawndale Mayor Robert Pullen-Miles for the same seat. Pullen-Miles bested McKinnor by thousands of votes.Warren-Lane-School-Update-8-15-2022
