I am a long-time city of Inglewood employee and want to answer one of the questions you posed on your blog. As you may now know, Mayor Butts has blocked your blog and email from the city’s servers to prevent us from reading your articles. We have resorted to reading away from work, and sharing with each other in our “underground network”.
You questioned why Ralph Franklin abruptly resigned. He resigned because he was tired of Butts’ shenanigans and being forced to publicly show unity with him. Franklin didn’t agree with taxpayers paying the mayor’s legal fees and possible settlements related to Melanie McDade.
Ralph Franklin specifically told HR Director Jose Cortes he was “uncomfortable with the mayor’s and melanie’s relationship”.
More women will be contacting you. We know we can trust you.
