A salacious rumor is making its way around the city of Compton. A current candidate for city council stated that the city will hold a special meeting, this week, to appoint a new city manager. The candidate listed a couple of names, as potential candidates, which prompted a call to this blog.
Former Sen. Isadore Hall contacted 2 Urban Girls to set the record straight.
“I am VERY flattered that the Compton residents believe I would consider being their city manager. Unfortunately, it is not true. I have accepted a position elsewhere that will be announced at a later time.”
Sounding in very good spirits and reiterating he is “doing good”, Hall went further to say:
“I would hope that a current city council candidate would use more discretion when sharing information with the community, especially when it is false.”
“Although there was discussion of me being the assistant city manager, I am happy with the position that I chose and will continue to do civic engagement in my [former] district and will continue to advocate and lift up the city of Compton. I AM GOING NOWHERE.”
2 Urban Girls looks forward to sharing his announcement, which should come by end of next week.
