I am a long-time resident of Inglewood’s District 2 since 1961. I’ve lived here long enough to remember when North Park was a reservoir similar to the one they had up in Baldwin Hills that flooded the area. Inglewood got scared and removed the above ground tanks and put them under it, and then came the park,
Anyway, I wanted to talk to you about a letter I received in the mail from the Inglewood Police Officers Association. I support the police but are curious about this letter.
I used to rent DVD’s of the city council meetings from the Inglewood Library and recall how Mayor Butts muscled his way onto the council. It’s also hard to get a word in when we still came to the meetings.
This letter is asking for donations up to $10,000 to meet with the members of the union board. Why would a resident want to do that? Butts and the council allowed the department to become severely understaffed causing more work for them. I also read they are giving large amounts of money to Butts and our council member Alex Padilla.
Isn’t one of the board members under a federal indictment?
Can you please look into what kind of dinner are they offering in exchange for $10,000?
