City of Hawthorne Council reacts to Mayor’s financial troubles

Hawthorne council members have voted to remove Mayor Chris Brown’s reckless spending from the burden of taxpayers by voting to take away his city paid for car.

City of Carson residents are LIVID

Protesting the fraud of an election that saw Jim Dear become City Clerk, residents have staged a protest denouncing the recent elections.  2 Urban Girls reported first that Albert Robles is the new mayor.  The South Bay community, at-large, are equally astonished by the vote.  Residents gathered at city hall with fliers distributed by campaigns in the March 3 election, including one that offered $5 food gift certificates to voters and recommended candidates for them to select. They also expressed concern with the way campaign nomination signatures were gathered by at least one City Council member.  Did they really take up Los Angeles Councilman Herb Wesson’s suggestion to give out rewards for voting?  I know residents in Carson are smarter than that.

City of Compton approves a couple of projects
