Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro) continues to hold ribbon cutting ceremonies along the Crenshaw/LAX rail line that still doesn’t have an official opening date. Elected officials from around the state convened at the Sept. 10 ceremony with Mark Ridley-Thomas notably absent from the photos.
Ridley-Thomas was on the Metro board when the rail line was approved and has appeared at multiple ribbon cutting ceremonies except Saturday’s.
Instead, former Inglewood Councilman Curren Price was in attendance with many wondering if he was there to speak with Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. about a search warrant that showed up at City Hall in July that he and his wife are the focus.
