Leticia V. Wilson continues to receive support from a wide range of current and former Carson and Compton elected officials in her bid to join the Compton College Board of Trustees.
I’m running to represent Compton College District 5 representing portions of Carson, Compton and Dominguez because I can no longer sit idly by as our college continues its downward spiral.
Our neighboring community colleges have kept up with today’s economy and currently offer up-to-date degrees and certificates leading to good paying jobs while our community is left behind. I’m committed to changing that.”
Compton College failed to apply and we lost out when earlier this year President Biden awarded 2.7 billion dollars to historically black colleges & universities. Shame on the current board member who allowed this opportunity to pass.That will not happen on my watch!
I’m endorsed by Compton’s Faculty Union, Carson Mayor Lula Davis-Holmes, Carson Mayor Pro-tem Jawane Hilton, Compton Councilman Jonathan Bowers, Compton Councilwoman Yvonne Arceneaux (Ret.), Compton School Board Member Satra Zurita, and numerous other Carson and Compton leaders because they know me to be a fighter and someone who delivers for our community.Leticia V. Wilson

Compton College has never been a HBCU. And should not be considered a HBCU. I don’t care how black Compton may have been during the late 1970s through the 80’s or 90’s.
Compton College has lost fifty percent of its students since 2017, while the college president is one of the highest paid single-district administrators in the entire state. Meanwhile, the Board of Trustees has done nothing, even when presented with continual evidence showing that the college is in trouble.
Please vote in new Board members and save Compton College!
