Compton Mayor Aja Brown Endorses Mike Bloomberg For President.

Compton, CA–This week, presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg visited Compton where he was endorsed by Compton Mayor Aja Brown in a ceremony attended by the local community and many people of influence in Compton.

When Brown posted to her social media account a recap of the event along with her endorsement of Bloomberg for President, many people took to the comments to show their disagreement with the move.

“Judge a person’s character by the company they keep. I can’t believe your endorsement, Bloomberg does not give a SHIT about the average working class Compton citizen PERIOD! This proves that it’s time for a new mayor in Compton.”

All due respect are you aware of how his stop and frisk increased mass incarceration in NYC of innocent people. There’s hardly a black person in the crowd Compton Knows what’s up.

You’re not listening to THE PEOPLE. You’re too busy tryin to convince us of why you made such a bad choice. You literally wasted your endorsement. NO ONE OF COLOR is going to vote for Bloomberg. Democrats have NO strategy. Just like you guys FAILED with Hillary. But, money talks.

Brown will also co-chair the California Bloomberg campaign.

 “I’m proud to endorse Mike Bloomberg for president because he has a real plan for all Americans. Mike has pledged a $70 billion commitment to invest in underserved cities to drive economic empowerment and close the economic gap between White Americans and people of color. His Greenwood and El Paso Adelante plans have the power to lift communities like Compton and change outcomes for generations,” LA Sentinel.
