  1. Compton needs a seasoned City Manager! This is the first time in Comptons’ history that a City Manager does not have the power to respond. In The City of Compton change is what is needed most. Please vote for progress. Our city has been at a standstill for nearly eight years. I do not understand why the council has not voted to remove Cornwell, and do a nationwide search. He has not fulfilled his promises to the people of Compton. It really makes you wonder about everyones integrity on the Dias.

  2. Sorry my dear people, the leadership decided during this crisis it was more benefiting to lay-off hard working employees, not worrying about them or their families during these troubling times.
    I say all that to say if you don’t expect anything from selfish, liars, non-effective, dysfunctional and wanna be leaders; then you want be disappointed.
    Remember this Aja Brown campaign on a lie; her grandmother was rape and brutally murder, did she really think the residents of Compton we’re stupid and won’t check.
    Just ask any former CPD they will verify it didn’t happen. Evidence show’s her grandmother did elsewhere.
    To tell the truth like Malcolm X said this a case of the chickens coming home to roost.
    Aja you are fraud…. hit the road jack!

  3. This corruption and inept leadership by Aja and her incompetent CM deserves a call to the AG for the state of CA! XAVIER BECERRA! what are we doing? Waiting for another City of Bell incident to ravage thru Compton?? Ppl need to wake up! Unite! Call your state ( elected) officials that we need intervention to unveil the corruption in our City Council here in Compton !

  5. Yes WE PAY OUR TAXES…but CAN’T GET THE STREETS REPAIRED!!! Especially on VICTORIA STREET. By the Delamo Mobile Home Estates where all the BIG RIGS are riding through EVERYDAY.

  6. The City of Council approved a Elevate Public Relations firm that is costing tax payers several thousand dollars. Mistake, they should have responded to the complaint. Mayor Brown is not the only person that can speak on behalf of the City of Compton. The City Manager is the CEO the rubs the city. Next time, City Manager, get permission from Mayor Brown to speak on behalf if the city. City Manager, there is a council of five people, someone could have given you the green light to respond to the media and to the citizens.

  7. Yes! The city of Compton has had corrupt city officials for years. They come to your house during election time ask for your support and you give it and when they get elected the citizens of Compton can not be heard.

  8. I lived in Compton all my life I just bought a hose 5 years ago my street was full of potholes and still is at present. This unbelievable this city a joke highest taxes in the county people needs to start paying atetion.

  9. We need a republican in office in compton . Someone who will not play games but make a great city like Irvine.. to employ the people not out siders. Our police need to come from compton for compton. I believe we all can change our city first no more unions in compton . Companies in compton must employ 70 % of the city

    1. How long have you lived in Compton, stop complaining, get out , attend council meetings, make your voice heard.
      If you believe that a Republican can make it better, get like minded citizens together and VOTE one into office.
      YOU MUST ALL VOTE!
      Stay safe and healthy, this is one persons opinion.

  10. The trees roots are damaging our plumbing and sidewalks, bad streets are damaging our cars and both are costing us thousands.. meanwhile we’re paying thousands of dollars towards our elected officials retirement..there’s something wrong with this picture.

  11. Do what is right for the people. Fix the city and invest in the community. For too long have they taken from this city when it has great potential to rise. we need someone who is going to take the right steps and care for the people. If people sitting on the board then time to leave and get the right ones on the board.

    1. We pay first world taxes and get a third world city, the politicians need to be investigated for corruption

      1. Yes! The city of Compton has had corrupt city officials for years. They come to your house during election time ask for your support and you give it and when they get elected the citizens of Compton can not be heard.

  12. Why not.
    They put a sewer supervisor (damion timmons) as a Streets maintenance supervisor because he showed promise and was doing a “fabolous” doing sewers.

    The citizens dont pay attention to the city and then bitch. You have no idea what you tax money is spent on. You want your streets paved thru your taxes (measure p) that u voted in but you dont pay attention to how that is spent.

    There’s “no” money. We have to have layoffs. But yo ass didn’t know the City Manager Office still got money to buy furniture. Did ya?
    People are laid off. Directors are laid off. Employees are assigned additional duties with a higher pay but always lower than a directors pay. What a fucking way to save money!!! Our Charter says that Assistant Managers can’t be in charge of department, guess what? The idea went down the toilet

    Like i keep saying over and over and over. IT’S NOT WHAT YOU KNOW , ITS WHO THE FUCK YOU KNOW!!!

  13. My 4 year old granddaughter was out for our evening walk she started running and tripped on the broken sidewalk that caused injury to her face that resulted in a blackeye with a huge scape. The sidewalks really needs repairs.

  14. Enough is enough. My block (killen pl-borderline of Compton and Lynwood) has at this point what has to be the worst, most dilapidated street in the city. Lynwood side literally the next block over has fixed that street and others, Compton recently fixed the next block over and the ones that follow, but this block nothing. These craters are massive, if you don’t see one of these or forget one is there, you’re now looking at vehicle and bodily injury; my cars suffered and now my back is starting to suffer. City sales taxes are astronomical, utilities are exhorbitant, the sheriff’s are abusive, and to top it off the very street where I reside and therefore travel daily is a health/vehicle hazard. I need to do some research now. Thanks mayor for looking out for us. Following that Arizona gameplan- brand new Walmart, and Grand Streets Banyon around the corner. Oh and orchard/bullis needs a blinking red stop sign at the very least, before someone gets hurt again.

  15. The city of Compton refuses to address many concerns that is not the only busted sidewalk! We are still waiting for streets to be repaired! The mayor wants to talk about injustice from the sheriff department what about her injustice in the city? Do something so the council will follow and in return do something which will lead to the city manager, city attorney and others! DO SOMETHING. Many people are moving out of this city because of the false concerns and handles situations of the Mayor and others others dump trash in the city, illegal garage conversions. Homeless living in lots next to schools it’s ridiculous to call everyday for years and never get an answer maybe we should ALL call the news

    1. Kim;
      File a claim to be reimbursed by the city and force the city to conduct a review of all sidewalks conditions.

      In the past, the City Manager and his staff would travel throughout the city to actual see the condition of the city. Those days are gone.

  16. I feel like they should at least give Comptons residents a responds. They can make repairs for other things but not our DAMN sidewalks. Make it make sense y’all!!!
