Mayor Brown Pushes To Repave Every Street In Compton
Measure P will be on the ballots of Compton voters on Election Day Tuesday, June 7 and is designed to address one of the most urgent crisis’ in the city—the streets. Measure P is not a bond and will not raise property taxes. Known as the Vital City Services and Neighborhood Protection Measure, Measure P will add a 1 percent sales tax on taxable items bought in the city to repave all of Compton’s streets, establish a street maintenance fund, increase lighting, strengthen public safety and stabilize basic city services.
“When residents said they needed their streets fixed, I promised them that I would introduce a real plan to fix every street definitively, because every resident and taxpayer deserves to drive on smooth and clean streets,” explained Mayor Brown. “We delivered Measure P and now it’s up to the voters to pass it into law so that we can move Compton forward.”
The City of Compton will host an information town hall meeting on Measure P on Saturday, June 4 at 10 a.m. at the Dollarhide Community Center located at 301 N. Tamarind Avenue. Following the town hall meeting Mayor Brown will host a Yes on Measure P GOTV rally at 195 E. Compton Blvd. in the Renaissance Plaza. More information on Measure P can be found at yesonmeasurep.org.
