From the Mayor

On June 4, 2013, the people of Compton elected Mayor Aja Brown as the youngest Mayor that the city of Compton has ever had. An experienced community development professional with over 10 years of experience working in urban communities, Mayor Brown has dedicated her career to initiating change in disadvantaged communities. She is a strategic visionary focused on progress and has built a legacy of developing and implementing public policies to facilitate guided growth and protect community assets.
