Former Compton councilwoman elected to represent retirees

Congratulations to friend of the blog, Ms. Barbara Calhoun.  Ms Calhoun has been a friend of the blog since this author lived in Compton and sought her support my transportation business.  She recently stood up at the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, as a delegate of SEIU 721, meeting on behalf of union employees, against a Compton who supported Wal-Mart. Now she has been elected by union retirees in LA and Orange County, to represent them.  Good for her!
