Incumbent Mayor of Inglewood James T. Butts is projected to win his re-election bid for Mayor of Inglewood with over 60% of the vote. He defeats Mayor Hopeful Marc Little.
Both candidates have waged a difficult and expensive battle for the Inglewood Mayoral office. Signs and posters for both candidates have been plastered everywhere in Inglewood, as well as a multitude of election mailers from both candidates.
Butts and Little are backed by some major players. The Los Angeles Clippers have been hopeful about a plan to build a Clippers stadium in Inglewood adjacent to the new Los Angeles Stadium. They have poured over $280k into an independent committee that supports Mayor Butts.
Madison Square Garden, which owns nearby Forum venue, has spent over $600k in direct donations to Marc Little’s Campaign.
