8 thoughts on “City of Compton State of the City is today

  1. Uh oh…doesn’t feel good so far. $100 per person admission for a state of the city address. And today, saw gas go to over $4 a gallon on a drive through South Bay, and tomorrow it’s expected to go up another 30-40 cents. I know I can’t afford to attend nor any of my neighbors. Oh well.

    1. Forget everything I posted. The Mayor’s Address was riveting and gave me new insight on everything I’d ever wanted to know about where the city is heading. Clears up everything for me. So I probably won’t post anything else along the lines of negative here on 2 Urbangirls. Sorry I doubted myself. You have to watch it for yourself, however. She’s the real deal. Finally!!! Thank God. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mReC_L60jy8

  2. Re: Social media presence.
    It is sad that these profiles are so blatantly being used as a springboard for the mayor and her initiatives. It’s as if the rest of the City Council doesn’t even exist. When I look at just about ALL of the surrounding cities and their social media presence, it becomes glaringly obvious that, once again, Compton is on an island.
    I personally like the move to social media and the new website but would like to see the integrity of the city maintained by way of the seal and more diverse posts. Actually, I would like to see less of the elected faces and more of the people who elected them; I have found very few posts from other cities which practice this form of advertisement for those elected.

    Not to mention that the profiles on Twitter and FB don’t even use the official city seal (as most cities do.)

    1. I see it too. Scratching my head on this move and why it seems so offshore from the reality I drive each day. Head in the clouds maybe. IDK anymore.

  3. “The city rented the room”? I’ll be damned if my taxpayer dollars are going to be used to benefit a party thrown by the mayor.

      1. Not sure but it has been brought to our attention the city’s website has the mayors nonprofit “vision for Compton” logo on it. We are told it’s at the footer of the homepage.
