Welcome to our web site!
PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED  BY THE TITLE THE CITY IS GIVING THIS BALLOT MEASURE:  "THE CITY OF COMPTON VITAL SERVICES AND NEIGHBORHOOD PROTECTION BALLOT MEASURE"  THIS TAX IS TO PAY FOR SOME BONDS THE MAYOR IS TRYING TO SELL AND THE INCREASED SALES TAX IS FOREVER!!!!!
 
THE MAYOR IS USING THIS TITLE TO GET AROUND THE  REQUIREMENTS FOR VOTER APPROVED BONDS. 

DEAR CITIZENS OF COMPTON, ARE YOU TIRED OF PAYING TAXES?  WE ARE!!!!!  THE MAYOR IS PUSHING FOR A NEW TAX ON US.  IT COMES IN THE FORM OF A SALES TAX  INCREASE OF ONE PERCENT!!.
 
TODAY WE PAY 9% IN SALES TAX ON EVERY DOLLAR WE SPEND ON ALL PURCHASES EXCEPT FOOD IN THE CITY OF COMPTON.  IF YOU VOTE FOR WHAT THE MAYOR WANTS, WE WILL PAY 10% ON THOSE PURCHASES FOREVER.
 
STOP!! STOP!!  STOP!!  VOTE NO ON MEASURE P, THE SALES TAX INCREASE JUNE 7, 2016.  STOP THE BLEEDING FROM OUR WALLETS AND PURSES.  VOTE AGAINST ANOTHER TAX.
 
SOME OF THE  BUSINESSES  THAT WILL BE HURT BY THIS TAX ARE: TARGET, HOME DEPOT, BURLINGTON COAT FACTORY, FALLAS, MARSHALLS, BEST BUY, STAPLES, AT&T, VERIZON, FRIDAYS, STARBUCKS, PAPA JOHNS AND BURGER KING BECAUSE MANY OF US WILL JUST DRIVE A FEW MILES OUTSIDE THE  CITY TO SHOP.
 
IF SOME OF THOSE BUSINESSES CLOSE, WHAT HAPPENS TO THE COMPTON CITIZENS WORKING IN THOSE BUSINESSES?
 
THEY ARE USING  CITY FUNDS TO PROMOTE PASSAGE OF THIS MEASURE: THEY HIRED A PROFESSIONAL PUBLIC RELATIONS FIRM WITHOUT VOTING ON IT. THEY ARE  USING THE CITY'S WEB SITE TO PUSH FOR THE PASSAGE OF THIS MEASURE, EXCEEDING STATE LAWS THAT ONLY ALLOW THE PUBLIC AGENCY TO SHARE INFORMATION.  THE MAYOR HAS TAKEN A POSITION ON THE CITY'S WEB SITE  SUPPORTING PASSAGE OF THE MEASURE.
