Local Voices: ‘Carson residents get it. They raised their own [utility taxes] to keep their city moving forward’

 By SANTIAGO PEREZ

Wow! Carson residents get it. They raised their own utility taxes to keep their city moving forward. Unlike Compton residents next door that can’t even get a 1 percent sales tax. I am a new resident of Compton and I will continue to try to work to improve my city and not just criticize.

Common folks look at other cities doing it. We have to work together and stop attacking people just because they have new ideas. I watch the Compton City Council meetings and some residents are really aggressive towards the mayor for just trying to improve things. Is it that they don’t get it or they just feel threatened by young people trying to fix what the older generation (has) messed up? God help us!
