On April 4, 2017, Inglewood voters will elect or re-elect council representatives for the 1st and 2nd Districts. Seats 1, 2, and 3 also need to be filled in the school advisory board race.
Here’s a sneak peek at the ballot:
In Council District 1, incumbent George W. Dotson is running against retired graphic artist Leroy N. Fisher and community advocate Maxine Toler. Information could not be found on Hugo Ramirez, also in the District 1 council race.
Councilman Alex Padilla is running in District 2 unopposed.
Three seats on the Inglewood Unified School District Advisory Board of Education are up for election. Seat 1 incumbent Margaret Richards-Bowers did not file to run for re-election, leaving the seat open for a newcomer. Dionne Young Faulk and Odest Riley Jr. are running for that seat. Faulk is a community activist. Riley is a real estate and financial specialist. In their bids for re-election, Seat 2 incumbent Carliss McGhee and Seat 3 incumbent Melody O. Ngaue-Tuuholoaki are running unopposed.
In addition to choosing school board members, voters will decide on Measure DE, which seeks permission to change the district's method of conducting elections.
Voters are encouraged to become familiar with the candidates. Early voting begins on March 6. If you have recently moved or have never voted, you will need to register by March 20, 2017 either online at lavote.net or in the City Clerk’s office in Inglewood City Hall.
