Compton Mayor Emma Sharif has allegedly made her selection as to who she wants to be the next city manager.
Michael Antwine currently serves as the city’s assistant city manager, and was tasked with negotiating deals to develop surplus property held by the Successor Agency.
Residents are familiar with Antwine previously working in the city controller’s office, and apparently, he abruptly departed his employment when the former deputy treasurer was under federal investigation for embezzling nearly $4 million of taxpayers money.
Although there wasn’t any perceived connection to the theft in the treasurer’s office, to the controller’s office, residents were concerned that Antwine didn’t stay to assist in the investigation to uncover how much was stolen.. He was then welcomed back in a higher position.
Resident predict this selection will fail.
