COMPTON – Compton Councilmember Emma Sharif has created a District 4 Advisory Board. The Advisory Board will provide recommendations and information to the Councilmember on issues relative to District 4.
The group of four volunteers will meet every other month on the second Wednesday beginning in March at Kelly Park, 2319 E. Caldwell St.
“When I first ran for city council my thoughts were on how to give the residents in District 4 a voice in our governing process,” said Sharif. “This committee is designed to do just that — provide the residents with a voice regarding issues and concerns in their district. They will not only work to identify issues but to also be a part of the solution.”
Brenda Postelle, a Compton resident since 1963, president of the Poinsettia Avenue Block Club and chair of the Advisory Board said, “I am very honored and proud to be on the Advisory Board and to be able to work with such a great team of my fellow neighbors. As the chairperson, I promise to the best of my ability to make things work smoothly, effectively and, more importantly, work as a team.”
Amethyst Jefferson-Roberts, 22, a Compton High School graduate; and resident of Compton for nearly two decades said, “I am because we are and because we are, therefore I am. To me, that means that everyone in the community must work together in order to make a better community.”
