Inglewood City Clerk Yvonne Horton has announced she is retiring from public office upon the election of a new officer. The position comes with a salary in excess of $8500 per month for an approx. annual salary exceeding $100,000. Two candidates have qualified for the November ballot to succeed Horton.
One candidate has come out swinging with a slew of high profile current and former elected officials, who have endorsed her candidacy for the position. The candidate is a current city employee working inside the city clerk’s office, with access to voting information for every registered resident in the city of Inglewood, providing her with an advantage other candidates don’t have.
Horton has allowed her name to be printed on city council agendas and recently recorded a message that went out citywide to alert residents of the filing deadline for a COVID-19 rent relief program administered by the County of Los Angeles.
2UrbanGirls is wondering if any law and/or ordinance is on the books, regulating an employees ability to seek office, while still employed by the city of Inglewood?
