Aja Brown made history back in 2013 by becoming Compton’s youngest ever Mayor at 31. Last year Brown went head-to-head with the city’s former Mayor Omar Bradley, who she defeated by securing 62 percent of the vote, securing her second term. Now her eyes are on a seat in Congress.
“It’s time to move forward. “Onward. It’s time to finish the work. If it isn’t about progress, it’s petty. Put it aside. I ran for mayor because I believed I was called to affect change. Instead of complaining, I brought solutions. Leadership requires tough choices. Progress comes at a price. You have to be willing to make tough calls and takes the hits. For those of you that have followed the last four years, you know that we’ve had our fair share. But I can tell you without a doubt that this journey has been nothing short of amazing, and I give God all the glory and thank the residents from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to serve as your mayor,” she said at the time of her win.
“Brown herself feels it’s by no means a shoo-in that she’ll win, because of almost unparalleled voter apathy in the district. We’re told, although she thinks the district is heavily democratic, the Republicans just get out and vote more often.” – TMZ
