The Inglewood City Council has voted to continue its appeal of a Superior Court judge’s annulment of the 1987 election of City Councilman Ervin (Tony) Thomas.
The 3-0 vote Tuesday means that the new election ordered by the Superior Court and upheld by a state District Court of Appeal last week will be delayed indefinitely.
If the city had not opted to appeal the decision, Thomas would have stepped down May 1 and faced candidate Garland Hardeman in a rematch of their 1987 run-off election.
Mayor Edward Vincent and Councilmen Anthony Scardenzan and Daniel Tabor voted for the appeal. Thomas abstained.
