Word on the Streets: Compton seniors removed from city council meetings

untitledThe Compton Tribune is an upstart community newspaper based in the City of Compton.  Contributors to the paper include former Compton elected officials, Omar Bradley and Patricia Moore.  Bradley represented District 1 with Moore representing District 2.  They would run against each other in the mayoral election in 1993 with Bradley being victorious. 

Community activist and former mayoral candidate William Kemp has also become part of team.  He attends every city council meeting in Compton.  He can be found at the podium addressing every item on the agenda and has been removed from chambers, on numerous occasions, by former mayor Eric Perrodin.

Has newly elected mayor Aja Brown picked up were Perrodin left off?

In the September 27th edition of The Compton Tribune, William Kemp submitted a letter to the editor around the treatment of the seniors in the council meeting and Brown’s having them removed?

Is the “new vision” for Compton getting blurry?

2UrbanGirls reached out to Mayor Brown for comment and she has not responded as of press time.
