Inglewood Treasurer Wanda Brown has provided 2UrbanGirls with her latest report covering the last few weeks. Brown has successfully won re-election and now has time to continue providing updates on the city’s bleak fiscal overview. Despite the city’s $9.8 million revenue shortfall, the city mislead city employees and the public, with false budgets that included surpluses. Those gross misrepresentations of the truth, by Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr., CFO David Esparza, City Manager Artie Fields and Acting Budget Manager Keaunna Buchanon. have negotiators perplexed as to where is all the supposed revenue from the building of SoFi Stadium. 2UrbanGirls has been reminded that the city made little to no money from the construction as you don’t build a multi-billion dollar stadium from visiting your local Home Depot.
