L.A. City Council President Herb Wesson Says Compton Mayor Aja Brown ‘Knows How to Get Things Done’

Wesson endorses millennial mayor for second term

COMPTON, CA – Just days after former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa endorsed Compton’s Mayor for another term,  L.A. City Council President Herb Wesson doubles down with strong support of Mayor Aja Brown.

“In Aja Brown, Compton has a mayor who knows the city and how to get things done,” said Council President Wesson. “She knows how to bring ideas and people together to move forward a city and for the past four years she’s done exactly that for Compton. She’s worked hard on behalf of Compton residents to bring a shared vision for Compton’s future to fruition and deserves the opportunity to finish the work that’s been started.”

Wesson joins Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia, Inglewood Mayor James Butts, Lawndale Mayor Robert Pullen-Miles, Gardena Mayor Tasha Cerda, Carson Mayor Albert Robles and Lynwood Mayor Maria T. Santillan-Beas in support of Compton’s millennial mayor.

“I’ve worked to diligently to bring new economic development opportunities to Compton to ensure that our residents have access to the goods, services and employment opportunities that they deserve,” shared Mayor Brown. “Council President Wesson’s support and that of other leaders in surrounding cities I feel is a validation of the work that we’ve done here in Compton.  As Compton advances as a city, so does the region.” 

At 31, Aja L. Brown made history as Compton’s youngest elected Mayor in 2013. A national trailblazer, Mayor Brown’s New Vision for Compton platform is a revitalization strategy centered on12-key principles that focus on family values, quality of life, economic development and infrastructural growth.

The primary for the Compton mayor’s race will be held on April 18.
