Dear Mr Yochelson,
In addition to the complaint I have filed as it relates to the Inglewood City elections and what I believe is a deliberate attempt to manipulate the nomination process for favored or preferred candidates I have attached these documents for your review.
It is my contention that the notice by the City Clerk is a deliberate attempt to manipulate the voting process to appear that she is following the law by election code.e
I’m asking the District attorney to review these claims , I argue that the attachment provided in this email was not readily available on the City’s website and or public facilities.
In fact the document listed ” as ” City Clerk was in fact not only a questionable document as it lacks an official letter head but also with purposeful and deceptive intent does not offer an official timestamp as to when the document was in fact produced as standard with all other documents that are officially submitted to the City’s website.
It lacks a signature and date it was created, which is standard in most documents produced by her office.
The entire process should be reviewed as this affects not only city elections but also school board seat 3.
The city clerks office utilized a mass messaging system on August 18th where select residents received a recorded message from one of the candidates, on behalf of the city clerk, alerting residents to the closing date of a rent relief application deadline.
Why wasn’t this system utilized to notify the public, on August 7th, that the nomination filing period was extended?
Our city clerk is using her office to promote the candidacy of Aisha Thompson by including her name on official city documents, sending out mass voicemail recordings, and conducting city council meetings, in order to provide her with an advantage over the election process. In the entire history of the printing of city council agendas, since the city was incorporated, has the City Clerk added their deputy’s name to the agenda until April 2020.
According to salary ordinances, taxpayers pay Horton additional pay, to attend City Council/Successor Agency/Housing Authority/Parking Authority meetings, that are held concurrently on each council agenda. Failure to show up, and have her deputy perform her “extra” duties, should allow for non payment of additional pay for those duties, on those council dates, correct? Horton is also absent from other meetings, that are required for her to attend, to receive additional pay, and that complaint will be forwarded separately.
The city clerk’s office appears to be using taxpayer resources for Thompson’s campaign, which is what the intent of IMC codes 2-37, 2-48, 2-49 and 2-50 appears to address to ensure city employees are NOT campaigning on the taxpayers dime while performing official duties.
City treasurer Wanda Brown interviewed with 2UrbanGirls stating other city employees have been denied the ability to run for office unless they quit their employment.
In Closing Mr. Yochelson and based on the the number of conflicts deliberately created by the City Clerk in clear and obvious collusion orchestrated by the City Clerk and Deputy City Clerk, to allow this process to stand, as is, further plays a role in the general public’s ongoing deteriorating faith in the democratic process.
Thank you in advance for you consideration to these matters.
