In a guest commentary in the Los Angeles Daily News and Daily Breeze, Dean David Smith applauds the benefits of the new Inglewood stadium on the local economy, including an estimated a billion dollar boost and 40,000 new jobs. But he urges local leaders to safeguard the interests of local small businesses, residents and the City of Inglewood as plans move forward in order to mitigate potentially negative impacts on those stakeholders. Smith writes, “As Los Angeles civic and business leaders continue to make ready for a championship football team, they have an opportunity to be the champions for Angeleno businesses and residents as well.”
