COMPTON – Compton closed out its last city council meeting for 2021 with a moment so low-key, you had to know about it to know what was going on.
The Dec. 28 meeting started without Councilwoman Michelle Chambers appearing on the dais. During the meeting she comes in with documents under her arm and a manila envelope in her hand.
She drops the envelope in front of Galvan.
Residents shared their thoughts.
“Someone said they heard ‘you are served'”, said Robert Ray, who attends the weekly meetings.
“It just hits different when your chickens come to roost,” wrote Nina Childs on social media. “Keep your foot on his neck Andre Spicer.”
Spicer ran against Galvan in the hotly contested election earlier this year which saw Galvan win by one vote.
According to Spicer, Galvan was served by Chambers on his behalf.
“I’m suing him in civil court for cheating and stealing the election,” wrote Spicer on social media.
Chambers actively campaigned on Spicer’s behalf, and is believed to be a witness for Spicer in his quest to be on the city council.
The District Attorney’s office is in the middle of prosecuting Galvan for election fraud, but has reached out to members of the community to ascertain their concerns with Spicer’s campaign.
Spicer has never been charged with any wrongdoing in this year’s election.
“Why would the city clerk certify the election when it was too close to call?” asked a member of the DA’s office who requested anonymity.
Residents are currently in the process of attempting another recall on Chambers, with the help of Galvan.
Galvan could not be reached for comment.
