Our beloved City of Compton is suffering at the hands of our City Council.

Our city is starting to resemble a third world country. The main reason is the misappropriation of CITY FUNDS.  This includes Council Members OVERPAYING themselves for DECADES.

Our city council is dysfunctional and SCANDAL prone.  Some city council members are disrespectful to the community and do not have our best interests at heart.  Compton has had a long history of corruption and the cycle is continuing.  It’s time for change to come!   We are done. 

Potholes, inadequate street lighting, trash, increased homelessness and businesses closing are just a symptom of a deeper disease.   Our city has been left without funds to cover basic infrastructure.   New money coming in is still being used to pay for old debts.  Something MUST change!

The community of Compton is tired of being lied to and stolen from. We demand a CHANGE NOW.

On 3/5/18 Betty T. Yee, California State Controller revealed that the city has been left in a $42 million dollar deficit and stated to the LA Times:

“We hope this is a wake-up call to the residents and businesses of Compton to please pay attention to what your City Council is doing with your public funds.”

Betty T. Yee report states Compton City Council has violated the city's chapter and has contributed to the city's hardship. Though the state is aware of the problems nothing has been done and is causing our city to fall apart.

Money being stolen from the citizens of Compton needs to STOP immediately. Please help us before its too late! 

The quality of our infrastructure and leadership does not represent the soul of Compton, so we have decided to stand up and demand change. These are the things we want to help change:

*Increase the city’s voting population. (PURGE the voting registration) 
*The quality and safety of our streets to be transformed through removing potholes and fixing the lack of lighting.
*Transparency with the city government use of city’s finances so that residents may hold their elected officials accountable.
*We desire to see our streets and canals clean; through the removal of trash and the prevention of illegal dumping practices.
*City solutions and prevention efforts to counteract the increasing rate of homelessness in the city.
*Aid for businesses who are struggling to stay open, as well as prevention efforts to keep businesses thriving.
*The large amount of abandoned buildings in the city, which causes health and safety hazards such as fires.  
*The poor quality and high expense of our water. 

PLEASE help the city of Compton and sign & share our petition!

Thank you,

Compton Advocates
