Inglewood Councilman Ralph Franklin has privately spoken to residents in the 4th District about the absence of his long-time Planning Commissioner Terry Leroy Coleman’s sudden resignation from the Planning Commission weeks before a crucial vote on a massive project in Franklin’s district.
Franklin was elected to the Inglewood City Council in 2003 and quite frankly his time is up. He is out of touch with the residents and continues to slap us in the face with his failure to publicly voice his concerns on projects in his district.
Instead of having his Planning Commissioner and/or him publicly go against Mayor James T. Butts they simply don’t show up to meetings to avoid public scrutiny from either the residents or Butts.
He has expressed to key supporters, who have spoken to 2UrbanGirls on condition of anonymity, that he will make public remarks at this week’s regular city council meetings which will be held Tuesday, June 23rd at 2pm. They asked 2UrbanGirls to share publicly so he wouldn’t backtrack. “Our votes for Franklin in November hinge on him publicly explaining himself”.
Residents can listen to Franklin’s remarks LIVE on the city’s Facebook page.
Treasurer Wanda Brown speaks out weekly on the council members failure to go against Butts and Franklin’s latest stunt proves she is correct. Franklin is concerned that his failure to leave residents without a voice during last week’s Planning Commission will have dire consequences for his re-election bid in November. He has proven he has no interest in being a voice for the 4th District and is the punk Brown has eluded to.
On this week’s council agenda is a denial for a wrongful death claim brought by Halaevalu Tuuluoaki, setting a Public Hearing to assess homeowner’s property taxes for delinquent sewer accounts, set an additional Public Hearing to approve a substantial amendment to the FY 2019-2020 Annual Action Plan for CARES Act funding and a FY 2020-2021 budget amendment to include and allocate $1.9 million in SB 1 funds for street repairs directly related to the incoming multi-billion dollar NFL stadium.
Again, do NOT forget to watch this week’s regular city council meeting, on June June 23rd @ 2pm on the city’s Facebook page, to listen to 4th District Councilman Ralph Franklin address the public on the proposed Clippers arena project moving forward in the Planning Commission without representation from his district.
