Amy Jimenez se postula para alcalde de la ciudad de Compton para revitalizar nuestra ciudad, cerrar las brechas de la comunidad y llevar transparencia al Ayuntamiento.
Let’s complete all of the road and pothole repairs throughout the city. Residents rely heavily on their vehicles to access work and other essential amenities. The streets’ potholes add unnecessary vehicle maintenance costs to our already economically strained community. With your support I will work to address additional unkempt infrastructure issues such as accessing clean water, street lighting, and pipeline repairs by utilizing existing programs in the county and acquiring grants that levy the economic burden on residents.
We know that infrastructure issues like these are related to the imminent climate emergency and our overall well being. When our streets are clean and safe, not damaged and dirty, it brings a sense of pride and respect for the neighbourhoods we share. Compton residents deserve cleaner air, more park space, and the assurance that together we will build our resiliency against the impact of climate change. We need to build on the groundwork conducted by our state representatives towards a greenification of the city by introducing alternative energy such as solar panels to create shading and green spaces in partnership with companies aimed at social equity.
Compton is often labeled as the most dangerous city in California. While crime rates and homicides have decreased over the last eight years, public safety remains a top concern. Residents are showing leadership in this area, working to rebuild a sense of community and solidarity through block clubs and coalitions.
Compton residents deserve inclusive and progressive leadership that reflects the diverse needs of the community. In order for city services to work, we must codify accessibility, transparency, and accountability across all departments in City Hall. That entails leaders with integrity, reliable staff, consistent procedures, and transparent policies. It also requires checks and balances through audits and community committees.
I will prioritize the representation of all Compton residents and the diverse needs at the county, state, federal, and international level.
We represent the future of America. It is time to push for greater heights and ensure a prosperous long-term economy. That includes youth programs, workforce development, and efforts to attract and support diverse businesses that pay livable wages.
Economic development should be closely linked to the fight against climate change and the movement towards “green jobs”. At the federal and state level, representatives are working towards this direction and it is of essence that we come on board.
Currently employment in the city is centered around transportation, production, services and sales. Thus there is a great opportunity to shift towards green construction, manufacturing, renewable energy generation, and transportation that is aimed at increasing efficiency and/or reducing environmental impact of various modes of transportation including trucking, mass transit.
How do we get there:
For all California residents who want to be voters or who would like to check your registration status.
