Compton elected officials are clearly using the issues with the Sheriff’s department to drive people to the ballot box this November under false pretenses. Their proposed “advisory” measure regarding inclusion of Compton Community Policing standards is dead on arrival. As Sheriff Alex Villanueva explained to the council on June 29, 2020, the Sheriff’s department doesn’t write the law enforcement contract for the cities they serve, that’s under the purview of Los Angeles County. If this council truly wanted “change” why haven’t they appeared before the Sheriff’s Oversight Commission?
Are Compton residents not paying attention to the fact that Mayor Aja Brown is using $400,000, of taxpayer dollars, to pay for a special election to gain an additional year on her term and this so-called Sheriff’s contract amendment is the driving force to do so?
