Following the recent candidate’s forum sponsored by the Residents for a Better Inglewood where City Council candidate Danny Tabor appeared to advance over his rival candidate, there has been much activity leading up to the run-off election scheduled for June 12.
“We have been walking the precincts, telephoning voters, attending block club meetings and talking with Inglewood residents at their doors,” Tabor said. “It is a critical time for the city and I believe the citizens are ready for a collaborative type of government and a more open type of leadership where the citizens are able to exercise their ownership and control over their community.”
Tabor, whose campaign literature states that he has never stopped fighting for Inglewood and he never will, believes that voters will focus on several key issues that will have a major bearing on Inglewood’s future.
“There are many issues facing the City of Inglewood,” Tabor explained. “Among the more important things that I have heard directly from the citizens, include the whole notion of having an Inglewood government that actually serves the citizens and making city hall more accessible to the residents.”
“Another important issue,” Tabor explained, “is the issue of public safety, as evidenced by the voter’s passage of Measure IT. When I am elected to the City Council, I will work with my colleagues to provide the funding that the measure requires making sure that we hire the necessary police officers, implement the youth intervention programs, and establish the citizen oversight committee that the citizens supported.”
“In addition,” Tabor concluded, “I pledge to ensure that the city’s economic development plans are expanded to include, not only large corporations and developers, as has been the recent pattern, but also the small and local business owners who deserve to share in Inglewood’s growth and prosperity and who will bring much needed jobs to the City of Inglewood.”
Tabor has earned the endorsements of some of Southern California’s most notable elected officials and community leaders. From Bishop Gregory Dixon of the First Church of God-Center of Hope in Inglewood and City Council members Ralph Franklin and Eloy Morales, on the local level, to Board of Supervisor member Yvonne Burke, on the county level and, Diane Watson and Mervyn Dymally, US Congresswoman and CA Assembly member respectively, on the state level, to name a few, Tabor has garnered an impressive group of supporters who agree that his election to the Inglewood City Council is good for the citizens, the community, and the City of Inglewood.
“My endorsements have helped to validate my credibility in this important race and I am confident that the voters will make the right choice in the June 12 runoff election.”
