The city of Compton continues to flounder under the Aja Brown administration. We have seen employees indicted for embezzling city funds, passing a higher sales tax to fix our streets which are still in a disarray all because we believed in Aja Brown’s “leadership”.
Now we are learning the city has declared a revenue shortfall and will begin the process of laying people off while continuing to bestow hundreds of thousands of dollars to companies affiliated with people who worked on the campaign of Council woman Michelle Chambers.
The Woodlawn Cemetery remains dysfunctional and a hazard to the homes surrounding it and family members have taken to cleaning up the property themselves. During one of her remote Town Hall meetings she said it was too large for the city to tend to and passed the buck onto Asm. Mike Gipson. Does she not have the power to ask the Fire or Water Department to water the grass so the homes don’t catch on fire from the homeless encampment that continues to grow on the property?
Brown is up for re-election and her time is up. We gave her another term to “finish the work” and she continues to fail us miserably. Is her idea of finishing the work destroying what’s left of Compton?
Residents should be asking how exactly is she making our city better.
