Yvonne Arceneaux has enjoyed a long career serving the city of Compton residents. First as a teacher in Compton Unified and as city councilwoman, since 1993. She has escaped prosecution and allegations of misappropriating funds, unlike some of her colleagues and is well liked throughout the city. After months of speculation, and her increased prescience in the Lone Star state, at last nights regular city council meeting, Mrs. Arceneaux announced it was her last meeting and she would be retiring.
Mrs. Arceneaux spent extraordinary amounts of time, in Texas, and the community could feel her energy waning.
With her officially resigning, it will now be up to council to either appoint someone to finish her term or hold a special election. Legally, council must decide by February 2016.
