When I ran for Mayor, I made a commitment to establish six advisory committees to advise the Mayor on issues and concerns of residents and businesses. Since taking office, I have seen the need to create three additional committees. I meet with each committee monthly to be advised on issues the Mayor's office should address throughout the City and to provide updates on projects and activities in the City.
Because of the contributions of these committees, a number of significant accomplishments have been achieved. I want to extend my sincere gratitude to each committee for their involvement in the projects.
Education Advisory Committee:
This committee has heightened my awareness concerning our school system. I strongly support the efforts of the District to place a bond initiative on the ballot to build new schools and refurbish other schools. Both our children and our teachers deserve the best.
Most of my committees meet at night after a full day of work. I salute and applaud all members of each committee. Their commitment to the well being of Inglewood is highly noteworthy. As we continue to work together, I am convinced that Inglewood will become a model City for the entire nation.
