INGLEWOOD, Calif. – Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr. is evading being served court papers in an legal matter.
We are in receipt of documents detailing the Sheriff’s department has tried unsuccessfully to reach him on three separate occasions throughout the month of October at his city hall office.
This could explain why city hall is on lockdown and residents are unable to attend city council meetings inside of council chambers due to the monthly extension of teleconferencing under AB 361.
The Nov. 1 regular city council meeting was cancelled with a special meeting being scheduled for today with the only item being closed session.
The mayor is currently up for re-election and is facing five challengers. This go round he is missing the endorsements of the multiple billionaires occupying the sports and entertainment district.
They have made small contributions to his campaign coffers.
Who is the mayor dodging?
