As the City of Compton continues to spiral out of control, there are two things that are most clear about what needs to happen in the city. First there needs to be better communication between Compton Unified School District (CUSD) and the city and most importantly, City Attorney Craig Cornwell has got to go. [adsenseyu2]
Compton Unified is struggling to maintain order in the classrooms with teachers and students alike complaining about rampant drug use and dealing, on school property. This has resulted in numerous walkouts and the city filing a lawsuit for the city attorney’s failure to enforce the municipal code.
Craig Cornwell benefited from running unopposed in the last election and his actions on the dais reflect that.
2 Urban Girls has learned that former city councilwoman, Pat Moore, may be tapped to be the liaison between the two entities. This would definitely increase communication and transparency for the residents yet she has been convicted of money laundering, so perhaps another choice is best.
Residents have begun to quietly pondering former Mayor Eric Perrodin, returning to the dais, as the City Attorney. He has experience serving as a police officer and a District Attorney and of course as the longest-serving mayor in the city’s history. In the capacity of city attorney, the seat has NO voting power, but his expertise would come in handy with enforcement and working with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.
2 Urban Girls would definitely support Eric Perrodin for City Atty. Thoughts?
