The City of Compton held run-off elections yesterday, June 2, 2015, which saw District 1 incumbent Janna Zurita against Richard Alatorre and District 4 incumbent Dr. Willie Jones against Compton Unified Board Trustee Emma Shariff. Thank you to resident Bob Ray for live tweeting the vote counts. The results may surprise you.
District 1 council member Janna Zurita retained her seat receiving 753 votes to Richard Alatorre’s 615.
District 4 incumbent Dr. Willie Jones will be leaving the dais having received 353 votes to Emma Shariff’s 433. The good news is? Shariff is no longer responsible for educating children.
Results will become official once the City Clerk counts provisional ballots on June 10, 2015.
