The devil remains.
Like chess in order to win there are a few pieces that you must take out.
The City Clerk is a mean, disrespectful, evil spirited lady that hides under professing to be a “God Fearing” woman who doesn’t answer to anyone.
What we have learned during the Aja Brown tenure, is these evil ladies use Bible Verses and scripture to disarm unsuspecting truly “God Fearing Folks”. What better way to win a Christian over? Pepper them with Bible Verses while you wear a sheep’s skin! The term “Wolf in sheep’s clothing” is epitomized by these women (Godwin & Brown).
The nasty City Clerk, Alita Godwin, refused to perform her duties when she refused to swear in Mayor Elect Emma Shariff and Councilman Isaac Galvan because she personally does not like them (confirmed by an un-named employee).
Godwin, on many occasions, has blurted out her duties when being challenged about handling her own election. She has referred to her duties as spelled out in the Charter when ask about her sons unauthorized use of the city seal or PIR’s. However, when deposed in the JCJ Corp v. Compton case, she looked and sounded sheepish and dumb. Where was the aggression that she so fervently handles citizens and colleagues, that she personally, does not like?
It is unacceptable for her not to fulfill her duties because she does not like someone who happens to be her colleague . It is unacceptable for her to be disrespectful to her colleagues and residents of this community. These behaviors reflect her lack of higher education and her lack of class (social status). One could explain it as, “Peasants running the Palace”. When this happens… anything goes!
•lack of skills
•lack of integrity
•disrespect for your colleagues
•disrespect for the people who you are elected to serve
•inability to understand the specificity of the duties as defined in the City Charter
•refusal to perform the duties as defined in the professional Clerk’s associations
•failure to perform her duties as outline in the City Charter and Government Codes.
Need I go on and on? No, the citizens of Compton get it. Many residents, elected officials and Godwin’s staffers have been the brunt of her attacks, prefaced with, “I am a God Fearing Woman” or “God Always Wins”, as a reference to the name she received as a result of marriage.
Not only is she disrespectful and mean, she’s bodacious and believes because she is elected she is accountable to no one, unless it is election season and she needs your vote. What happened to the t-shirt money, close to $200,000, that she and Doug hid for years. During Doug’s parting words, he explained how he/they hid money.
Wow! There has been lawlessness in City Hall during the past 8 years like never before! However, with the exit of Brown, Sanders and Cornwell, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
As for the disrespect Godwin publicly displayed by refusing to swear in Mayor Shariff and Councilman Galvan, and not offering them to have their swearing in ceremony in the Council Chambers as she did the others, I would say to your colleagues, them (Shariff & Galvan) today and you (Bowers, et.al) tomorrow. Oh, we did see how she rudely cut off Councilman Elect Bowers during council comment, proclaiming, “He ain’t a councilman yet!” And her comment, she permitted Bowers to be sworn in at the council chambers instead of her office. It only gets worse from here! After an abuser gets away with the first punch, the beatings only get worse!
You think that there is nothing that can be done when Godwin and Brown claim they are elected officials and they don’t answer to the Council or the people that elected them? There certainly is something you can do… cut their departmental budgets down to the number of staff they need for the amount of work they actually do. The number of staff they have has obviously inflated their egos and they have checked out of reality!
The citizens of Compton are demanding respect from the people whose retirement we pay! No more biting the hand that feeds you! We are WOKE and we WILL hold you accountable! Let the Purge begin!
