THIS IS A REGRESSIVE TAX THAT WILL HURT THOSE WHO ARE LEAST ABLE TO AFFORD IT. 
WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT THIS TAX MEASURE WILL HURT YOU. 
THEY WILL HAVE MANY PUBLIC WORKSHOPS REGARDING THIS MEASURE OVER THE NEXT MONTH OR SO.  THOSE WORKSHOPS ARE  DESIGNED TO SUPPORT THE TAX MEASURE AND PRESENT A LOT OF DOOM AND GLOOM IF IT IS NOT APPROVED.
 
 
 
 

THE MAYOR JUST REFINANCED THE WATER BOND, WHICH ADDED MANY MORE YEARS FOR US TO PAY ON. 
 
THIS WAS DONE, IN PART, TO POSITION THE CITY TO SELL THESE BONDS, IF THE SALES TAX INCREASE IS APPROVED.  THE SALES TAX WILL PAY FOR THE REPAYMENT OF THE BONDS THEY WILL SELL AND NOT TO PAY FOR MUNICIPAL SERVICES. 
 
CITIZENS, WILL THIS DEAL THEY WANT TO DO  JEOPARDIZE  THE 1% SALES TAX WE GET NOW???? AND OR WILL THEY TRY TO USE THOSE FUNDS TO SELL MORE BONDS? HMMMMMMM
 
 

THE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL HAD WORKSHOPS ON REBUILDING CENTRAL AVENUE BETWEEN ROSECRANS AND COMPTON BLVD (CHECK THE RECORD IN THE CITY CLERKS OFFICE). THEY SAID THAT THEY HAD FEDERAL MONEY TO DO THE JOB (THAT WAS LAST YEAR).  IT HAS BEEN ALLEGED THAT THEY DID NOT PROCEED BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO CREATE MORE DRAMA TO SUPPORT THEIR SALES TAX INCREASE.   
 
DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS ABOUT $5,000,000 IN THE CITY'S BANK ACCOUNT THAT COULD BE USED FOR SOME OF THESE PROPOSED PROJECTS, HMMMMMMMM???.
 
ANY SMART MAYOR OR CITY MANAGER KNOWS THAT YOU NEVER USE BOND MONEY TO HIRE MORE EMPLOYEES.  HOW ARE YOU GOING TO PAY THEIR SALARIES AFTER THE BOND MONEY IS SPENT?   YOU WILL HAVE LAYOFFS AND BACK TO SQUARE ONE, BUT WITH 1 TO 2 HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS IN NEW DEBT.  BONDS ARE USED FOR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS 99% OF THE TIME.
 
THE MAYOR TALKS ABOUT AN OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE,. WELL, JUST LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED LAST MONTH WHEN THE MAYOR DID NOT LIKE WHAT A CITIZEN SAID ABOUT HER AT A COUNCIL MEETING.  WITHIN THREE WEEKS, THE COMPTON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE EXECUTIVE BOARD PUT THAT PERSON OFF THEIR BOARD.
 
OVERSIGHT COMMITTEES ARE GENERALLY JUST ADVISORY TO THE CITY COUNCIL, ARE APPOINTED BY THE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL, AND SERVE AT THEIR WILL. 
 
DID YOU KNOW THAT ACCORDING TO THE COMPTON CITY CHARTER THERE ARE FIVE COUNCILPERSONS, ONE OF  WHICH IS TO BE KNOWN AS THE MAYOR, AND WHO'S AUTHORITY IS  TO PRESIDE OVER THE COUNCIL MEETING.  THE CITY OF COMPTON HAS A CITY MANAGER/CITY COUNCIL FORM OF GOVERNMENT.  THE CITY MANAGER IS THE CHIEF EXECTIVE OFFICER AND REPORTS TO THE FULL COUNCIL.  THE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL SET POLICY AND THE CITY  MANAGER RUNS THE DAY TO DAY BUSINESS.
 
SOME BELIEVE THAT THE MAYOR OF COMPTON AND OR CITY COUNCIL CONTROL THE COMPTON UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT (TWO CITIES) AND THE COMPTON COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT (SIX CITIES).   NOT TRUE!!! BOTH OF THOSE DISTRICTS ARE LARGER THAN THE CITY OF COMPTON.
